U OF M ADMISSIONS
(2007-05-23)
(wgvu) - ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - The University of Michigan says it's
received a record number of applications in the first year it's
been banned from using race and gender preferences.
Preliminary figures show more than 27-thousand-400 high school
students have applied. That's a six-point-four percent increase
overall and a six-point-seven percent increase of minority student
applications.
Applications from black and Hispanic students increased. Those
from American Indian students fell.
Voter-approved Proposal Two bans the use of race and gender
preferences in university admissions.
The university now uses a demographic review that measures which
schools and neighborhoods applicants come from and how well they're
represented.
