Mistaken admissions notices
BALTIMORE- Some 300 students who thought they'd been accepted to the prestigious Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore were actually rejected or deferred.
The university says it was a mistake of human error from a contractor that works with the school who pulled a wrong list of emails.
Of the 294 applicants who received the erroneous acceptance message, 285 had been denied admission and nine got deferrals.
The school apologized in follow-up emails and statements.
One mom who's son got the mixed up signals says university officers should make personal apology phone calls.
