Umm, Boalt Email?

Umm, Boalt Email?
« on: February 17, 2006, 03:04:45 PM »
Did anyone else who HASN'T BEEN ADMITTED to Berkeley just get an email congratulating them on their recent admission and inviting them to an event? What is going on with these schools?

I got the email too... I thought maybe they sent something in the mail and this email just beat them to the punch... Have you actually been denied admission prior to this?

Nope, I went complete back in November and haven't received a decision.

It's a mistake!  They sent an insufficiently long email apologizing.

I want to die, and take Boalt with me!

WTF.  WTF.

Also, presumably this email only went to "students of color" ?

I just got this as well. I tried to call the number listed in the email but it went straight to voicemail and I wasn't brave enough to leave a message. I would be totally mortified to get a call back from someone telling me that I'm just not good enough for their school. I can handle rejection much better in writing.

Edit: Nope Jason, I'm as white as can be. That threw me off a bit, too.

"We apologize for the email you may have just received.  There was a computer error made and you were sent the email in error.  We ask that you disregard it.

Thank you."
