My alma mater and the wrong distribution list

Go Tritons! (and take the Padres with you)

In a widely reported story yesterday, it was revealed that the UC San Diego admissions office accidentally sent acceptance emails to candidates it rejected.  They set up distribution lists for both groups of candidates and got mixed up on which message went to which group.  Admissions director Mae Brown was forced to send out a second email admitting the error, “In all humility, I ask that you please accept my apologies and those of the University of California, San Diego . . . and know that we continue to wish you success in your educational pursuits.”  Ouch.

So any email mistakes I make (and I’ll reveal another next week) is all about my pedigree 8).
