UCSD Gives False Hope to 28,000 Students

with 10 comments

For most high school seniors, graduation and the transition into adulthood is just around the corner. What’s even more exciting is the “Congratulations” acceptance letters received from universities. Unfortunately, one university crushed the dreams of thousands of students when it accidentally sent acceptance letters to all 47,000+ students that had applied to the university. That school is University of California, San Diego. They somehow sent the letter of acceptance to the entire applicant poll instead of only the students who were accepted, but about two hours later sent an apology letter to everyone.

I don’t understand how such a prestigious university can make a mistake like that, and then expect everything to be okay by saying “my bad.” It must really suck to be those students who were jumping up and down out of excitement, sharing the news with friends and family, and then to later read that it was a mistake and that they had actually been rejected.

Can you imagine if this were to happen to you?

  2. That actually happened to my friend and it’s awful, especially since you can’t do anything about it.

  3. That sucks! I would be pissed if it were to happen to me.

  4. I remember you telling me about this a few days ago when it had just happened. I hate how they can just say “I’m sorry” and nothing else can be done.

  7. Actually I heard this from the news and wrote down the basic facts I remembered and commented on how it sucks. Umm… I’m sorry that I’m not a psychic and don’t have the first hand resources to know when something happens to be THE FIRST person to present it? That’s what a blog is for hunny, if you don’t like it, don’t read it =)

    And although everyone makes mistakes, that’s not a normal mistake; it’s playing with people’s futures and hopes. They can’t do anything now that it’s happened, but they could’ve been more organized with their work to make sure it didn’t happen. It’s a big university, so there are no excuses.

  8. This actually did happen to me, and I was so embarrassed to go back to everyone and tell them that I had actually been rejected. And the anonymous above your last comment just sounds completely stupid. Grow up little kid.

  9. I think that anonymous had a good point actually. The part about making mistakes. There’s not really anything they can do now though…

  10. Now I feel like commenting as an anonymous for the anonymous you’re all commenting on. Yes, people make mistakes, but that doesn’t make the situation okay or any better, in which case I agree with Annie. And it’s actually the second part of the comment I have an issue with when he (or she) said “this isn’t even a blog.” Go learn what a blog is before you sound like an idiot, as stated perfectly by two anonymous comments above me.
