Northwestern University's prestigious Kellogg School of Management this week erroneously sent notices of acceptance to 50 applicants it had decided to reject. The applicants are not happy.</p>
<p>One of them, a 28-year-old Chicagoan, excitedly phoned his parents and enjoyed a celebratory dinner Monday after being notified by e-mail that he had been accepted. But the next morning, when the Lincoln Park research analyst logged onto the college's Web site to learn more about enrolling, he found out he actually had been rejected.

<p>Gosh, I feel so bad for those grad school applicants. Imagine how they must have felt after recieving that post-acceptance rejection letter.</p>
<p>I had SUCH a paranoia of something like this happening to me...must be so horrible.</p>
<p>Ouch... That's why I refreshed my link over and over again. :/</p>
<p>This is nervewracking, I'm hoping to apply to Kellogg one day.</p>
<p>$235 application fee? Wow. And I thought our $65 fees were bad.
Gosh, I feel so bad for those people.
I remember when my NetID wouldn't work and my friends were like, "Maybe you didn't really get it..."
I freaked a little xD</p>
<p>MBA admissions is very expensive. You will find $200+ application fees the norm among the elite MBA programs because the ROI is so good. </p>
<p>Yeah, this situation really sucks.</p>
<p>wow that must be devastating, to have come so close but then being denied!</p>
