Yesterday I was thrilled to receive my acceptance from Goucher only to be checking my email this afternoon and recieve this:
Late last week, Gouchers Office of Financial Aid mistakenly mailed to you a letter congratulating you on your admission. This letter was sent to you in error as we have not yet made a decision on your application for admission. I am embarrassed to be sending this email message to you, and I sincerely apologize for our miscommunication.
Your application for admission is complete and our Admissions Committee will soon be reviewing your credentials. We plan to begin notifying applicants of our decisions on March 4th. In the meantime, you should also be aware that your Goucher financial aid application remains incomplete. If you wish to be considered for need-based assistance and need to know what is missing from your file, please contact Sharon Hassan, Director of Student Financial Aid, at firstname.lastname@example.org she will be happy to personally assist you.
A hard-copy duplicate of this message will also be mailed to you within the next day or two, and a copy of that letter will be placed in your admissions file. I hope that you will share this information with your parent/guardian, and I encourage you to contact me directly, simply by replying to this email message, should you have further questions or concerns. We made a mistake in mailing to you the letter of last week, and were doing our best to make things right. We appreciate your interest in Goucher and hope to be able to serve you in pursuit of your educational goals.
Any thoughts? Did anyone else receive this? Grr. Can't say I'm pleased with this but I guess I'll just have to wait a few more weeks.
