Goucher College sent the parents of 60 rejected applicants the email that was supposed to be sent to parents of admitted applicants, confusing many of the families, The Baltimore Sun reported. Human error was responsible for the emails saying that the applicants' "offer of admission was mailed today, but I wanted to let you know the good news now, so that your family can celebrate tonight." The college realized the error when it was contacted by applicants who reported getting rejected while their parents were being told they had been admitted. The college has apologized, and is now doing an additional review of the 60 applicants to see if some could be admitted.
