York University has apologized to 500 students after misfiring e-mails with false acceptances to the school. They were sent after an e-mail to the students confirming the University got their applications. Acceptances typically start getting handed out in February; the school hasn’t seen the marks yet by January.
York University’s apology is not enough for some of the rejected hopefuls. Toronto Sun put out invitation for those students to contact them and to write stories about them. In one article, applicant Sabrina Brisbane says she cannot bear to tell parents that she hasn’t actually been accepted. She says she wouldn’t be surprised if a class action law suit was launched.
Was York’s an apology enough? Should Sabrina just accept that it was a mistake and move on?
