The school has also not had sufficient time to lay out a case, both for and against, to its board of visitors.
Board member Jeffrey W. Ainslie said Wednesday that members had received a letter Tuesday from President John Broderick informing them that an analysis of a possible move from the CAA would be forthcoming. He said he isn't aware of a timetable and that the board has not been asked to consider a specific offer.
