While the Board of Visitors fashions a plan for co-education at V-M-I, the school has not sent out or received any applications from women.
Fifty-four women have expressed an interest in possibly becoming members of the class of 2001.
The government says V-M-I's business as usual admissions process "perpetuates the very discrimination which is at the heart of this litigation- -deprivation of CONTITU-TIONALLY guaranteed equal protection rights."
The Institute points out the Board meets next week. A decision is expected September 21 on whether to admit women or perhaps make it a private school.

75-percent of adults say they've turned off the T-V, or walked out of a movie theatre due to violence when they were in the company of their kids.
The A-M-A says T-V and movie violence contributes to violence in society.
Computer games generally get a bad rap, but a British doctor says he found computer games briefly "up-regulate" the immune system.
Researchers use the term "up-regulate" instead of "boost" because they don't know if the phenomenon is necessarily good.
This and other recent studies also indicate that not all types of stress suppress or "down-regulate" the immune system.
