UC San Diego accidently sends e-mail invite to rejected students

April 1, 2009

The University of California, San Diego accidentally sent an e-mail invitation to every student who applied for the school's incoming freshman class - including the 29,000 who had been rejected.

UCSD Admissions Director Mae Brown said that the message sent March 30 was supposed to be sent to about 18,000 accepted students, not all 47,000 applicants. The invitation was for a day on campus.

A mass e-mail apologizing for the confusion and technical error was later sent.
