Boalt misfires admissions e-mail

The director of admissions at UC Berkeley’s Boalt Hall accidently sent an e-mail to thousands of applicants implying that they had been accepted to the prestigious law school, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

“[T]he mistake happened as he was training a new staff member on the office’s e-mail system. The e-mail was an invitation to a reception and was supposed to go to the 500 applicants already accepted to the school. Instead, it was accidentally sent to all applicants, not just those who had gotten early notice of admission.”
