Mich. school unveils new admissions policy
Friday, August 29, 2003

The University of Michigan has eliminated a point-based scheme the Supreme Court ruled unconstitutional in an affirmative action case in June.

The undergraduate school will still take race and ethnicity into account, officials say. The law school's admissions policy is unaffected, as it was upheld by the high court.
