So I am sure many of you have heard of this story I am about to talk about. I find it extremely irresponsible and just outright wrong that a big mistake like this could happen. All of us in this class got acceptance letters from Purdue but what if they decided to send you an email saying that they no longer wanted us to go here just after being accepted. Well this happened at a different school to roughly 29,000 students. I couldn’t imagine how angry I would be if this happened to me. I mean they just screwed with people’s lives and then they just say sorry and forget about it. That’s what people usually do these days, it’s not my fault and I am going to blame someone or something else. Not many people man up and take responsibility for people that fuck up this bad.
I wouldn’t know what I would do or where I would be I wasn’t accepted to college. I guess I would probably be working, but to send someone through a totally unnecessary emotion trial just got me angry. They said it was a technical error which is possible but I don’t think that sounds plausible. I think they are just trying to cover someone’s ass. That is a gigantic mistake that needs to be corrected whether it is from a person or from a technical error. I haven’t seen anything about them trying to rework, reprogram or buying another program that will do a correct job when sending these acceptance emails out. Something significant needs to be done to the program that does these emails (if it was indeed a program and not a person).
The University of California San Diego (UCSD) should be punished or have some type of repercussion associated with this. I mean what if they got an email saying that they got a job that was double their pay, had great benefits and they worked less, then the next day they get another email basically saying piss off. They would want to sue that company for doing that to them I bet. College is an opportunity to help people adjust to the real world and have a significantly better chance to get a good job and for someone to take that away from them is really irritating. I just hope that a gigantic mistake like this never happens again because it really could have and most likely did screw up a lot of peoples lives.
