Woman Plans To Attend Citadel This Fall

Four women have been accepted as cadets at the formerly all-male Citadel military school, and at least one is planning to enroll this fall, a federal judge was told Wednesday.

Two of the women who have been accepted have indicated they plan to attend school elsewhere this fall, but two others have paid non-refundable $150 room deposits.

The hearing was the first before Judge C. Weston Houck since the Supreme Court ruled that the all-male admissions policy at Virginia Military Institute was unconstitutional.
