230 students receive acceptance letters by mistake
MOORHEAD, Minn. (NBC) -- Minnesota State University Moorhead is playing damage control after sending more than 200 acceptance letters to students that were not supposed to get them.
The university noticed its data for fall enrollment was not adding up and when officials found out why, they sent another letter to the students saying they were not accepted.
"We didn't follow our processes as we should've, and we know that some people have been hurt by this in a very real manner," says MN State Marketing & Communications Executive Director David Wahlberg.
For many high school seniors, it is a dream to heading to the mail box and find a college acceptance letter.
"I was very excited. I was happy I know that I was making the next step in my life," Jeremy Abrahamson says.
What most, including Abrahamson, would never expect is another letter saying they were not accepted.
