Minister says Sprinkle barred because of trust
The regional minister of the Disciples of Christ responded to a Brite official’s accusation that he was barred from interviewing ministerial candidates because he is gay.

A letter from the Disciples of Christ regional minister says the Brite Divinity School representative who alleges he was discriminated against because he’s gay was asked not to participate in interviews because of a lack of trust and respect.

Stephen Sprinkle, Brite’s director of field education, said he was barred from interviewing ordination candidates from Jan. 12-14. Regional minister Robert Rueter said in a letter that Sprinkle was asked not to participate in interviews because of a petition Sprinkle filed in the 48th Judicial District Court in October.

College selectivity difficult to verify
College admissions offices can manipulate applicant numbers to appear selective in college ranking surveys. TCU will use an auditor to ensure accuracy.

College admission officers say there is a need to define exactly what constitutes an application to prevent misuse of the number of applications reported by schools seeking a higher standing in student user guides.
Pictures give applications special touch, officials say
With admissions officers reviewing as many as 2,000 applicants a region, staff members say pictures of TCU applicants can help admissions get to know applicants better.

Optional photos on applications help admissions officers remember certain students as they sort through the submissions of thousands of prospective TCU students, university officials said.
