Massachusetts Institute of Technology is apologizing to applicant who received an email that was supposed to be about financial aid but that incorrectly said “You are on this list because you are admitted to MIT!" The Boston Globe reported. For many (it is unclear how many) that line wasn't supposed to be there as their admissions status remained undetermined. MIT has apologized for the error, which was the result of merging two email lists.
