The University announced a new admissions policy today, one that involves hiring 16 additional people to review applications. The new policy is expected to cost $2 million for the first year, and involves a short essay about diversity. Also, there is no minimum GPA or test scores, and, according to the University, no points for anything. From the Detroit News article: “Students are ecstatic they’re continuing to use race,” said student Monique Perry, who is from Detroit, black, and who was awarded 20 points for race when she applied to U-M. “We’re hoping it will work effectively.”
