Screw Up of the Day: UC San Diego

What if you applied for college and really wanted to get into a specific one? Your hopes and dreams rode on this particular school telling you that they'd accepted you. Then you finally get your acceptance letter (or email in this case), only to be told 2 hours later that they messed up and in fact, you were rejected.

That's what happened to kids at UC San Diego. Yesterday nearly 29,00 rejects mistakenly received a letter of acceptance. Someone realized it after a half hour and then it took another 1 1/2 hrs to get a letter (email) of apology sent.

Somebody's office assistant is gonna be FIRED!
