Did anyone who hasn't heard from Boalt NOT get the email?
I received the acceptence email on Friday night as well as the invitation to the colored event. Since I am Hispanic everything seemed coherent. Besides, I did not received the short apology that most of you received 15 minutes after the initial acceptance email.Adrenaline flowing trhough my veins, I woke up my wife and called my mom (It made her cry!!) to tell them about the good news. My mother, after we hung up, called every single relative to share the news. On Saturday morning I had 7 messages from different relatives and friends congratulating me. Minutes later my mom called to tell me that she had made reservaions for lunch at the White House in Anaheim to celebrate...I cannot express in words the humilliation and frustration thaT I felt when at 1:53 on Saturday I received the "ANOTHER APOLIGY" email. I had to return every single phone call to explain the mistake and, to my great regret, brake my mom's heart. To my request, she canceled the reservation and we ended up eating at Pollo Loco...LOL I'm sharing this tragic story with all of you guys so that those who think that this is not a big deal realize the magnitude of Boalt's error. My sincere condolences to those who had the misfortune to live something similar. I know there are plenty. Schools have no right to play with people's emotions in this way.
uh, your acceptance is probably legit. the only email that was sent in mistake was the invitation to the people of color event. An email you received before that would be perfectly fine, and the apology emails were sent out to a lot of people, many of whom never received the email in mistake. the 2nd apology clearly states what the subject line of the (only) email sent out by accident was, which was "You Are Cordially Invited…"
