UC Irvine Rescinds Nearly 500 Fall Admission Offers

“we could have managed that process with greater care”

This has public relations nightmare written all over it.

FOX News reports:

California university pulls almost 500 fall admission offers

University of California, Irvine officials have rescinded hundreds of admission offers for the upcoming fall semester.

The Los Angeles Times reported that offers to 499 UC Irvine students were withdrawn — 290 of them for transcript issues and the rest for poor senior-year grades, according to campus data.

KABC-TV reported Friday that the university’s Student Government Association has since demanded officials apologize to impacted students, reimburse all fees and guarantee future admission.

A university official says administrators will meet with the student leaders to discuss the matter.

“I acknowledge that we took a harder line on the terms and conditions this year and we could have managed that process with greater care, sensitivity and clarity about available options,”
