Fordham Accidentally Sends Acceptance Letters To 2500 Students Who Were Actually Rejected Or Deferred
2,500 early decision applicants to Fordham University were mistakenly told they were accepted to the school, The New York Times reports.
On Wednesday — two days before they were supposed to hear Fordham’s decision about their acceptance status — about 2,500 students recieved financial aid letters informing them they had been accepted to the college. However, these letters were from a third-party contractor and Fordham was forced to tell students that “the notices had been sent in error and did not reflect their status,” according to The Times.
A Fordham spokesman told The Times that one fifth of the applicants who had recieved the email — about 500 students — had actually been rejected from the school, while the other 2,000 were deferred and would find out their final status in spring 2014.
The CEO of Student Aid Services, the company that originally sent the financial aid letters, told The Times, “We are devastated by the error that has occurred today and extremely upset by the anguish that we have caused.”
Whoops! Just a teeny tiny clerical error. Little bit of a glitch in the computers. Just accidentally sent acceptance letters to 2500 high school seniors who spent hours upon hours crafting essays and applications and are sitting nervously biting their nails and tearing their hair out waiting to hear back from their dream school that will determine the next 4 years of their life and their future, when they’re actually all rejected or deferred. NBD right? Sure they’ll understand when we say it was just a mix up.
And yes you can say maybe it’s a blessing in disguise that these kids won’t have to spend their college years in the Bronx and maybe will come to their senses and apply somewhere where the sun actually shines and they don’t have to wear a North Face 10 months out of the year. But that’s a different conversation for a different day. Fact of the matter is they wanted Fordham and they did the work to apply and Fordham fucked them right in their ass and frankly the only acceptable move here is to expand your incoming class by like 400% and let every single one of them in. That’s justice.
PS – No but seriously guys consider this a second chance at life. Go somewhere warm.

Kentucky Superfan Chester Is Back With A New Theory…Attendance Down At UK Games Because The School Is Focusing Too Much On Academics
KS Radio – Kentucky Sports Radio’s most passionate caller has a problem with the University of Kentucky’s commitment to academics and how it is affecting attendance at athletic events. Chester believes sports should come before all the research, as he calls it, being done on the university’s campus. He says there is too much emphasis about UK being a research place.
“There’s been too much of an emphasis at that school…about UK being a research place.”
But isn’t school a place for education, Chester?
“That’s bull, that’s bull, well, it’s true.”
“We have to go over to the football games, they march out all these smart people out there. I’m fine with that. I’m happy for them to be smart and have great success and the professors and do all that stuff.”
“We got a bunch of these people coming in from other countries, which I’m fine with. But they need to learn and understand about sports!”
Chester’s back! Love this guy. Best UK super fan ever. If you don’t remember Chester is the guy who blamed Kentucky not making the tournament on “liberal socialism” which frankly I thought was a brilliant point. Fuck the overall record with the staggering amount of losses, it’s that god damn Obama that kept the Wildcats out of March Madness. And now we have a whole new theory on why attendance down. Is it a spoiled fan base? Fans who are too used to winning and don’t want to show up to the cupcake games? Maybe, but mostly it’s that for some reason Kentucky is focusing on being more of a “school” lately. Research and knowledge and shit. FUCK THAT. We got hoops to win. I mean good for all these losers who want to be “smart” and “have success” but if you think that’s more important than learning and understanding UK sports then honestly you’re a fucking idiot and probably a liberal piece of garbage.
- Patricia Carroll is the worst public speaker alive. Not even exaggerating. She is the single worst. Rambling, disorganized, repeating herself over and over again, getting every 10th word wrong and having to go back to correct herself. Kind of a shame because when she finally got to her point she couldn’t even present it. Said “Ladies and Gentlemen” no less than 545 times.
-Caroll said her client wasn’t tested for date rape drugs and that her blood and urine wasn’t sent to the lab for over a month.
-Carroll said her client’s medical records were altered. She was in the middle of presenting these documents…
When ESPN cut away to show Megatron highlight packages. Not even joking. They just stopped carrying it.
Time to cut over to the live stream…
- Accused state of “an investigation of a rape victim, not a rape suspect”
- She just put her stunner shades on, maybe that will help with the confidence
-”No investigation was conducted to speak of”
-Just called on the Florida Attorney General to conduct a “special investigation”
-Carroll in absolute shambles right now. SHAMBLES. Just got pissed at a reporter for his question, stumbled on her answer, her papers went flying everywhere and the sun is directly in her eyeballs.
-Family of the accuser should file their lawsuit against this lawyer. Dead serious. Every valid and interesting point she has tried to raise has gotten completely lost in her inability to present it.
-Geese have officially taken over this press conference.
-I’m bored so I’m going to work on the next blog now.
Sir Charles is in the building everybody. Charles Barkley is one of the most legendary guys who has ever walked this earth, but his athleticism is an enigma covered in an anomaly all wrapped up in a fucking riddle. I honestly don’t even come close to understanding it. For the life of me I can’t think of anyone else who was so gifted in their own sport and so embarrassingly bad at all others. Oh well, I’d still rather have Barkley kicking for me over Cade Foster.
Old Man From ASU Brawl Says He Kicked Frat Bro In The Face Because He Was Protecting His Pregnant Daughter
“I really couldn’t understand a word he was saying, he just kept yelling OLD MAN”
“I am not a karate expert I watched a lot of movies”
“I’m not proud of this by any means but when some guy starts hitting himself in the head and screaming at me and getting into my bubble I go into defense mode”
Well there you have it folks. In case you were wondering who to root for in the infamous Old Man vs. Frat Bros scuffle at Sun Devil Stadium. Old dude just standing up for his pregnant daughter who was getting harassed by a wild pack of rude and out of control fratty douches like a valiant hero. Of course there’s always the little question of “can the old man in the student section of a college football game slamming bros in the face with the soles of his New Balance sneakers” be trusted? And also shouldn’t a pregnant chick like be at home resting and not thrust in the middle of a drunk rowdy student crowd at a big football game? But whatever, I’m willing to give old balls the benefit of the doubt. He’s earned it. Note to fellow patrons. Don’t get in his bubble. His bubble = off limits unless you want to be eating rubber.
