Northeastern Law School Sends Out 4,000 Acceptance Letters by Mistake

Northeastern Law School Sends Out 4,000 Acceptance Letters by Mistake

“quickly sent a clarifying email explaining the error”

Oops. This has happened at other schools in recent years. How awkward.

CNN reports:

Northeastern’s law school sent out 4,000 acceptance letters by mistake

Over 200 law school applicants received the exciting news that they had been accepted to Northeastern University’s law school last week. There was just one problem: The acceptance letters were sent by mistake, according to the university.

The university sent the “erroneous email” on Monday to a total of 205 applicants due to a “technical error,” according to a statement from Northeastern University shared with CNN.

“Admissions decisions will not be finalized until later in the academic year,” the statement went on.

The law school “quickly sent a clarifying email explaining the error,” according to the statement. “Individual outreach is also taking place to applicants with concerns.”

In addition to 205 current applicants, 3,930 applicants from last year also received the mistaken email, said Northeastern.

“While many of those applicants have already matriculated at Northeastern or another law school, they also received the clarification email,” wrote the university.

“The School of Law deeply regrets this unintended mistake and is taking steps to ensure that it will not happen in the future.”

They need to find a lawyer and sue!

Eh, schools do that with increasing regularity the past few years. As long as they notify the students quickly, and in this case they did, it’s not that big a deal.

How many were eliminated for being white males?

Now that’s walking the equity talk!
Just accept everybody!

This is the downside of woke hiring practices. Their IT person is still looking for the “do-over” button like the one on their PS4 at home.

Perhaps their mass email program needs a better user interface.
