Legacy No More for Texas A&M

Texas A&M is scrapping its legacy program, effective immediately.

The university used to give extra points to applicants if the student's relatives were alumni. The president of the Texas NAACP says the legacy program was discriminatory because blacks did not attend Texas A&M until 1963, negating the "legacy" of many minority applicants.

A&M was the state's only public university with a legacy program.
