(Newser) – Just to make college admission a tad more excruciating, New York University has become the latest school to screw up on college acceptance notices, reports the Los Angeles Times. Some 500 rejected applicants were erroneously emailed last week that they had been accepted into an NYU graduate program. Officials blamed the goof on a clerical error. Last Monday UC San Diego mistakenly notified 28,000 rejected applicants that they had been accepted to the school.
