--f Affairs Gilbert Omenn said that the
" mnedical school has continued to
excel and because of that it has
held its very high rankings.
But Omenn said the medical
school's rankings would have been
even higher if selectivity had not
been incorporated into the rank-
Lichter said the quality of resi-
dency program directors, deans and
senior leaders at the school moved
the Medical School up from 12th
place last ycar in the U.S. News
ran kings.

Omenn agreed that the fourth
place ranking is an important testa-
ment to the "quality of education
that students get at the medical
school ."
Lichter also said the reputation
of the medical school, helped by
the Life Sciences Initiative, boosted
the school into the top 10.
"One of the most important
things is the reputation that our
school has. The fact that we are
among the great leaders in the life
sciences, that reputation gets
around quickly," Lichter said.
Omenn that the "spectacular
results" are derived from "a long
sustained effort."

Health view this increase in smoking as a result of
tobacco companies' campaigns targeting 18 to 24-
year-olds on college campuses. A recent Harvard
study found that residence halls seem to contribute
to students' nicotine addictions.
The Harvard study of 4,495 students from 101
schools found that college students who live in smoke
free dorms are 40 percent less likely to become
For many, the problem starts prior to college. A
Center for Disease Control report found that 6,000
kids under the age of 18 try a cigarette each day and
half that number become daily smokers. In addition,
4.5 million adolescents between ages 12 and 17
smoke cigarettes.

"I started smoking because of my best friend's older
sister who made us think it was cool when we went
out with her to parties in high school" said one LSA.
She said she now smokes half a pack every day. "I am
,trying to quit, but it is hard because I am hooked. I have
tried to quit five times without a program,' she added.
University of Michigan officials said they are
aware of the addictiveness of nicotine and have set
up a tobacco consultation service to help.
The program is geared to "extinguishing one behav-
ior and replacing it with others and creating coping
mechanisms for stress," said Linda Thomas, program
associate for UMH Health Promotion Division.
"We recommend for those attempting to quit to
initially avoid situations where there is smoking, like
bars, especially because when drinking alcohol it
lowers your inhibitions, making it easier for them to

say, oh I can have one cigarette,"' Thomas said.
The seemingly encouraging atmosphere of bars
and restaurants as well as the associated health risks
of second-hand smoke led the city of Marquette to
create a ban on smoking in restaurants. This law was
challenged in the Michigan Court of Appeals where
it was decided that no city in Michigan could put a
ban on smoking cigarettes. -
Although the plan failed in Marquette, the S
Free Air Act bans smoking in New York City resta-
rants and city vehicles but allows it in bars Z~d
The Smoke Free Air Act in New York is relat"Ly
lenient when compared to many California laws such
as one instituted in Palo Alto, Calif.
In Palo Alto, smoking is prohibited in all public
places, service locations, city pool cars and in 50
percent of unenclosed eating establishments.

ment, which previously read, "In
making admissions decisions, the
School gives greatest weight to
numerical indicators," was changed to
read, "substantial weight" in place of
"greatest weight."
"It allowed us to do a number of
new things," said Edward Tom,
Boalt Hall director of admissions, of
the change. "We doubled the size of
our personal statement, from~ two to
four pages. 1 think subjective factors
are just as important now."
Boalt Hall admissions officers
also expanded the factors consid-
ered in the application process. "If
we had a student that had low LSAT
scores and high GPA, we would take
into account his or her documented
history of standardized test takingy,"
Tom said.
With rankings becoming increasingt-
ly important to law school applicants,

many schools fear that relaxing the
emphasis on LSAT scores wil."se
their national ranking to slip. 7
"I think that (the LSATs
received additional focus and aten-
tion in recent years because ranking
entities - for example, U.S. News -
use it as a judgment of the quality of
students," said Erica Munzel,. assis-
tant dean and director of admissions
at the University's law School..,..
Munzel also expressed her con-
cern for how rankings are perc4yed
by students. "I think that when peo-
ple look at a ranking, they process it
very quickly. They don't ask them-
selves if they agree with : e
process. -
If Friedman's ruling prevails dk~
impending appeal, the pressure 4
schools to expand admissions cf'fra
will likely increase." '
"We are confident that his ruling
is going to be overturned on appeal,"
said Munzel. "if ultimately we don't
win, then we will assess (admissions
processes) at that point."

the bill, Epps said. The First Amend-
ment issue may be brought up in
terms up restrictions on issue adver-
tising and required disclosure from
Epps said there is no way to know
how the court will rule.
"There are some real consequences
to the bill, but they can be fixed," he
The legislation would ban so-called
soft money, typically five- and six-fig-
ure contributions to political parties
by unions, corporations and individu-
als. Republicans and Democrats com-
binied took in nearly 5500 million in
such funds ovei- the last two years.
It also would ban certainl types of
broadcast advcertising~ close to an elec-
tion. The provisionl, attacked by
McConnell and others as unconstitu-
tional, is an attemlpt to stop the flood
of "issue ads" by outside groups that
skirted currenlt legal restrictions by
avoiding the direct advocacy of a can-
didate's election or defeat.
No date has been set for Hlouse
consideration of the issue, but sup-
porters have said they hope for a vote
later this spring. Lotlgtime critics
such as GOP Whip Tom DeLay of
Texas have anniounceed plains to try
and defeat the bill, anld evenl somle
Democratic supporters appear to be
having second thoughts.
Epps said lie thinks the bill will
pass the House. "Ther-e will be a bigz
fight in the House. biut all these peo-
ple have to be re-elected in a year and
a half," hle said.
"Thley donl't want to appear against
catmpaign finance reform."
But Epps said hie's not sure thlat the
bill will become law.
"What George Bush is going to do
is anybody's guess." he said.
House Minority Leader Dick
Gephardt (D-Mo.), who has support-
ed previous versions of the bill,
recently told reporters lie favors no
change in the contribution limits to

candidates and parties, for example.
Senate Democratic Leader Tom
Daschle expressed similar concerns,
but ultimately accepted an increase
and played a pivotal role in keepiing
support for the measure from eroding.
While Watergate prompted the; lzst
nmajor overhaul of campaign finance
laws, McCain's involvement Ir'the
Keating Five scandal of the ,early
l 990s - he was not cited for any
wrongdoing - helped spark hts initer-
est in the issue.
A furor over fund-raising practices
in President Clinton's 1996 re-elec-
tion campaign, including Lincoln
Bedroom sleepovers and -W-hi-te
House coffees with the presidet tfor
high-dollar donors, gave McCain
fresh fodder.
lHe showed a willingness to clash
with his GOP colleagues, often in
acerbtc terms, and made the than oil
soft motiey into the centerpiece of his
bid for last year's Republican presi-
dential nomination. He stunned .the
party establishment when lie won* 'the
leadoff New Hampshire primary, 13
months ago, and later displayed aii
ability to attr-act the support of- mil-
lions of independent voters.
Ie reeturned to the Senate this year,
his national standing enhanced and
his detertmination to press the legisla-
tionl undiminished.
-At the same time, Democratic

tionlal inmpetus, and when Sen. Thad

nlent, ainnounlced his support'over the

a bit of street theater in which
McCain anld Feingol d walked fjrom
the Capitol to the headquarters of
the Republican and Democratic par-
"It's time to end business asus ual,"
McCain said that day. Republicans
greeted the procession with studied
silence; Democrats welcomq"him
and Feingold with a banner pr Qfess-
ing support.

"It's hard to imagine what the country
would be like without it," he said. "We
have not always lived up to our ideals as
a public university:'
Bollinger said public universities
across the nation have been open doors
for women and minorities such as
blacks and Jews. Bollinger said he
hoped to dispel myths such as "race no
longer matters."
"A public university is more commit-
ted to access," he said. "Public universi-
ties have provided a policy of
Bollinger said he is proud of the
accomplishments of tihe University and
through two strategies - legal and pub-
lic education - affirmative actioti can
be promoted and supported nationwide.
"I have made this a central obligation
of mine to speak about this nationall,'
Bollinger said. "We have a value -
eqluality'" he said. "We have many states
that are not living up to that ideal:'
Bollinger said prior to arriving~ at thle

believe." -
Harper said most students' take
advantage of the opportunity to'.experi-
ence diversity on campus.
"In my experience, when given a
chance, students will move in and out of.
groups and environments, she said"."
In a series of questions from students
about the affirmative action lawsuits,
Bollinger defended the admissions poli-
cies, saying that in addition lto. race,
boosts are given for geography, legacies,
test scores, CPA, athletics and ecofiom-
ics in order to seek variation and diversi-
ty in the student body.
"That reflects difference," Bollinger
said. "We take students who are ready
for the kitnd of education we offer"'
Bollinger stressed the commiunity
should be a heterogeneous society,
