“This was really heartbreaking for me,” Simran Chopra, 18, of Los Angeles told the Orange County Register, asserting that she mailed the university her transcript before the July 1 deadline.At Columbia University earlier this year, the Mailman School of Public Health accidentally sent offers of admission to 277 students, telling students the offers were erroneous about an hour later.Carnegie Mellon and Tulane recently made similar mistakes, and in 2009 the University of California-San Diego accidentally told 28,000 students they were accepted, when they were actually denied admission.Many were told they had failed to deliver their final high school transcripts on time, or had inadequate grades during their senior year.Others complained that admissions staff gave them petty or confusing reasons, or no justification at all for rescinding their admissions.The admissions staff has sped up the appeals process and is “diligently” working through the requests in the hope of processing all of them by the end of this coming week.
