'M' anxious to start tourney, pay Coastal Carolna tonight

by Jennifer Tianen
Daily MSA Reporter
The envelopes have been opened, the bal-
lots have been counted, and the election staff
has gone home to sleep.
The unofficial results are in: Craig
Greenberg and Brian Kight of the Michigan
Party are the new president and vice president
of the Michigan Student Assembly,
respectively..
The Michigan
Party garnered 40x
percent of theF
vote, with the
Conservative Co-
alition (CC) '
receiving 31 per-
cent. The Pro-
gressives came in
third, gathering ,
29 percent of stu-_
dents' votes. Greenberg
Despite a wide-
spread voter turnout drive, only 7.5 percent of
students voted - down from last winter's
elections when student participation was at
9.4 percent.
"I think this outcome shows that Michigan
students are finally ready for a change in their
student government, one that will make it
more effective and beneficial to them,"
Greenberg said.

Greenberg said he was elated with the
results.
"I'm excited to begin working to accom-
plish the goals I emphasized during the cam-
paign," he said. "Also, I hope that the
Progressives, Conservative Coalition, Kegs
and Weasels will work with us to improve
MSA."
Kight expressed his pleasure with the
sweet taste of victory.
"I think that it's a real testament to all the
hard work we put in during the campaign," he
said.
Jason Hackner, the Progressive presiden-
tial candidate, accepted defeat gracefully.
"I feel very proud to have worked with
such a dedicated group of people," he said.
He said he hopes the assembly will im-
prove under Greenberg's leadership.
Michelle Toger, the CC vice-presidential
candidate, wished luck to the Michigan Party.
"I hope that they prove to work as hard as
they campaigned and that they'll work with
other parties within the assembly," Toger
said.
Greenberg added that he is anxious to be-
gin making plans for the upcoming assembly
meetings.
"The first thing I am going to do is start
working to amend and change the Statement
of Student Rights and Responsibilities and the
Diag policy."

TUSCON, Ariz, - An extra 60
degrees surrounding the Michigan
basketball team has not melted any of its
NCAA tournament passion. If anything,
the sweltering heat has fanned the

Wolverines' desire to start the
tournament tonight against Coastal
Carolina.
"I think we're like all the teams,
we're anxious to play," Michigan coach
Steve Fisher said. "We're excited, hoping
we can come out and play like a number

one seed. It's an exciting time for us." .
Yesterday's press conference elicited
statements of commitment from Fisher's
club. Chris Webber promised there
would be no parties. Rob Pelinka recalled

.'U' struggles to handle omission of MCAT testing site

by Michele Hatty
Because the University is one of the
largest pre-medical schools in the country,
more than 300 University students scheduled
to take the Medical College Admission Test
(MCAT) April 17 are wondering why the
exam won't be given on campus.
However, there seem to be no definite
answers.
* The issue arose when Educational Test-
ing Services (ETS) - the testing company
that distributes the exam - took over the

test from the American College Test Com-
pany earlier this year. In the transaction ETS
inherited the April test date.
However, ETS' Graduate Record Exam
(GRE) was already scheduled for the same
day.
ETS' exams are overseen by test supervi-
sors who organize proctors to monitor the
exams. Having both tests on the same day
presented a problem for the University be-
cause ETS has only one test supervisor on
the Ann Arbor campus.

Celeste Tsuji, program administrator for
ETS, said, "It's ETS policy that a supervisor
cannot administer more than one test on one
day. It's because of the GRE/MCAT conflict
that the MCAT won't be offered. It wasn't a
question of us not wanting Michigan, it's
just that (Marlene Dyer, the ETS test super-
visor at the University) could only offer one
test."
Tsuji said she did not know how it was
decided that the GRE would be held rather
than the MCAT at the University, but said

she thinks the decision had to have been
made by someone at the University.
Tsuji acknowledged, however, that an-
other test supervisor could have been con-
tracted - thus allowing both exams to be
offered - but for some reason, that option
was not taken.
Some University students, upon learning
that they would have to find transportation to
other test sites - the closest being Washte-
naw Community College (WCC) - began
to express their frustration. And, as the Uni-

versity lacks a unified pre-medical advising
program, students were not even sure who to
call.
Lan Bui, an LSA junior who is taking the
MCAT, expressed her dissatisfaction with
the situation. "Michigan is one of the top
producers of pre-meds in the country, and I
just think that it's ridiculous."
Simone Taylor, interim director of Career
Planning & Placement (CP&P), said CP&P
first became aware of the University's

"Homosexuals do exist on this

said sophomore Michael Gorman,
one of the proposal's creators.
The proposal was approved by

"There is no time that an idea like
this is going to be introduced on a

first-year student Alison Conlin. "I

are too many people with weight
who are not going to let it go
through."
