On December 17, Johns Hopkins University mistakenly e-mailed 294 rejected students notifications of acceptance due to human error.

E-mails included congratulatory and welcome messages and encouraged to follow fellow students' Twitter accounts, buy school gear, and communicate with classmates on Facebook.
A spokesperson at the university said, "We sincerely apologize to the affected students and their families. It is never acceptable error. We are in the progress of making sure that communications will work accurately."

The university will send apologies to the rejected applicants who have received the e-mails and reconfirm that they have not been accepted.
