University of Michigan gives up on affirmative action

About time, too. But the university continues the fight in court.
It is important to emphasize that there remains uncertainty about how Proposal 2 will be interpreted and applied by the courts. However, because of the Sixth Circuit decision and in the absence of further guidance from the courts, we will proceed cautiously by adjusting our admissions and financial aid policies such that race and gender will have no effect on the decision-making process. We take these actions with regret, because we believe it would be fairer to applicants for us to wait until after the conclusion of the current cycle before making any changes.
