University of Delaware Computer Glitch Results in Erroneous Acceptances
March 16, 2011
Delaware admisions officials had an "oops" moment when 61 applicants received notices that they had been accepted, when in reality they had either been designated for the waiting list or rejected. Before the error was discovered, 12 of the students had registered for a campus information session and tour. Caught on their heels, admissions officials scheduled calls with each of the infamous 61, and pledged to re-read the applications if the waiting list comes into play. Surprisingly, this kind of event is uncommon, despite the electronic age and instant notification of admission decisions. That does little to soothe those applicants who received the email and registered for the information session and tour, making an already stressful college decision season more so.

Did You Know?
Be careful when you mail out those college applications (for those of you not yet ready to apply online). Did you want to apply to Georgetown University in Washington, DC or Georgetown College in Georgetown, Kentucky; Cornell University in Ithaca, NY or Cornell College in Mount Vernon, Iowa; Seton Hall or Seton Hill - you get the picture. Every year prospective students send their applications to the wrong school. Don't get tripped up. Click Here
"The college application process can be very overwhelming for the student as well as the family. Our family had long discussions about which schools would be the best for our daughter to apply to. We were all rather stressed and confused when I luckily heard about College Search Navigators, and this was the best thing that ever happened to us. College Search Navigators made it all come together for our daughter in a very personalized way. All deadlines where met and all papers signed and now our daughter is off to a great university. I have to say that College Search Navigators helped us make it all happen. I highly recommend them. "Amnery C., mother of Natalie C., Class of 2015,
