76 Vassar hopefuls wrongly told they were accepted
Short-lived Web error means heartbreak for 76 Vassar applicants mistakenly told they got in
By The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) ' Dozens of applicants to Vassar College were mistakenly told they had gotten into the school when they checked a website that had been set up for students applying for early decisions.

The Poughkeepsie, N.Y., school says 76 students logged onto the site after 4 p.m. Friday and saw letters saying they had been accepted when in fact they had not been.

The school says it fixed the mistaken information by 4:30 p.m. and informed all the impacted applicants of the mistake by Friday evening. Another 46 students who logged on had been correctly told they were accepted.



Students who apply early decision make a commitment to go to Vassar if they are accepted.

The New York Times had first reported the mistake.
