University of Kentucky mistakenly sends 500,000 acceptances

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,” WLEX-TV reported.

2. Think about it.

Does UK have a computer science degree? On a cursory basis, don't think so. Cuz they have problems with data processing.

3. Uh, oh.

As the mother of sons who applied to various summer programs all over the country, my heart goes out to all.

And at least that never happened to them. If they were accepted by a program, it was a valid acceptance. Whew.
