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.
