University Of Kentucky Mistakenly Sends Out 500,000 Acceptance Letters



The University of Kentucky mistakenly sent acceptance emails to 500,000 high school seniors for a program that usually accepts about three dozen students a year. The school followed up with another email less than 24 hours later and apologized for its mistake, citing a “technical issue.” Only a handful of those on the prospect list had been admitted to school. The acceptance was for this fall in the clinical leadership and management program of the College of Health Sciences. Needless to say, most of the emails went to students who hadn’t even applied to University of Kentucky.
