Getting accepted into college can be a dream come true. But the process turned into a nightmare for thousands of applicants at one New York university.
Last week, more than 5,000 students were sent acceptance letters from the State University of New York at Buffalo, even though they weren’t actually approved.
The school said the mix-up happened because "an incorrect email list was generated from an applicant database."
