Virginia Military Institute's male-only admission policy has been declared UNconstitutional.
The U.S. Supreme Court ruled today that V-M-I must admit women or forgo state funding.

Just how far V-M-I will have to go to accommodate women is up to the Board of Visitors. The board meets two weeks from now.

If V-M-I does become co-ed, though, Josiah Bunting says he aims to abide by the law with minimal changes.
