Can't it wait until a couple of weeks? Tech asks AG Kilgore for review of programs on use of race

It was my understanding that the Supreme Court will rule in the University of Michigan cases before the end of this session, but in spite of (or maybe because of) this upcoming event, Virginia Tech is once again soliciting the advice of Office of the Attorney General Jerry Kilgore regarding the use of race in a number of its programs, as reported here. One of the criticisms of the BOV's decisions on race in admissions earlier this year was that they could wait for the Court, which makes even more sense now than it did then.

This other story reports that Tech did not meet its goal for out-of-state students for the coming year.
