"You are on this list because you are admitted to MIT! (/^▽^)/" at the end of an email

At the end of an email titled "Reminder: Financial Aid Documents Due February 15th!" that I just received from MIT, it says this in fine print:
> Copyright (C) 2014 MIT Admissions All rights reserved.
> You are on this list because you are admitted to MIT! (/^▽^)/

This is a joke, right? I assume everyone got it?

    I got it to. But I'm not sure what it means. We could always hope right!! Go to the bottom of the email and click why did I get this? And it takes you to a page titled EY 14 Admits so idk. Pm me if u find out anything

    Also have this, but I was deferred early, and it also says "RA Applicants" in the header so. Yeah.
  • actman21actman21 Posts: 47Registered User Junior Member
    Well yeah, but it seems prety cruel. I mean I know it's MITs style to joke around but it seems kinda cruel to say that and get our hopes up. I think we should still confirm

    Anyone apply rd and get the email without the "You are on the list..." Or anyone apply rd and not get the email?

    I received the same email. I wish this was true. Perhaps it is true.

    It's on the emails of EA accepted students too - my son just got it. Maybe that copyright line got included by mistake?

    Probably as simple as the "accepted student" FA reminder form letter went to everyone by error.
  • rainoutrainout Posts: 5Registered User New Member
    So can we put this to rest? Did anyone out there NOT receive this email?

    Decisions for RD applicants have not been made yet -- no RD applicant has been selected or denied.

    I don't think it's a joke, because I don't believe the admissions office would joke about something so fraught. I'm sure it was a (really unfortunate) mistake.

    Hey, mistakes happen, and the fact that you're accepting responsibility and responding like you are says a lot to me. No hard feelings here.

    Shouldn't the emoticon at the end of the email be (/^口口)/ instead of (/^▽^)/ ? My emoticon is different from what you posted.
