Error in communication as report shows that the University of South Florida St. Petersburg mistakenly sent 430 acceptance emails to applicants over the weekend.
ABC News has it that the school said that the emails were sent on Saturday and that they were a result of “human error.”
The school management however reacted to the scenario promptly urging members of the public and the victims to avoid any patronage by touts.
“All of us work in higher education because we care about students, and we understand the confusion and distress a mistake like this can cause,” the school’s statement said.
“As soon as we found out about the situation, we immediately reviewed our process for communicating with prospective students and have changed our procedures to prevent this from happening again.”
