Northwestern B-School Sends Acceptance Emails to Fifty Rejected Applicants

Fifty applicants to Northwestern University‚Äôs Kellogg School of Management received an email from the school offering them admission.  But when they later logged onto the school's website, they learned that they had been rejected.  The school blamed the mistake on a "technological glitch."

Spokeswoman Megan Washburn said the school's automated mail-merge process mistakenly attached acceptance letters to candidates who had been declined. ...

One 28-year-old Chicagoan excitedly phoned his parents and enjoyed a celebratory dinner Monday after receiving the acceptance e-mail in error. But the next morning, when he logged into the college's Web site to learn more about enrolling, he found out he had been rejected.
