Kicker - Admission rescinded

WORLD Radio - Kicker - Admission rescinded


NICK EICHER, HOST: It’s not easy to get into the University of Kentucky’s Clinical Leadership and Management program. Really, it’s not. As the college says on its website, admission to the program “is a selective process.”

So imagine the surprise when a program that takes only about 40 students a year emailed admission acceptances to 500-thousand students!


Yeah, whoops. One recipient is Mary Dougherty of Texas. She told television station L-E-X-18  this was a head-scratcher.

DOUGHERTY: I had never been on the website. I’ve never been to Kentucky, let alone University of Kentucky.

Yeah, and I think it’s going to stay that way.

Turns out, it was a technical glitch behind the mass email.

So the university had to send another email within 24 hours to say sorry ’bout that. You have not been accepted. Except for the exclusive 40.

It’s The World and Everything in It.
