LOS ANGELES, Calif. Hundreds of high school seniors who thought they were accepted to U.C.L.A. actually are just on a waiting list.
The university said it accidentally sent out close to 900 acceptance letters.
U.C.L.A. told 894 high school students they were admitted to the highly-competitive campus.
"UCLA is aware that this is a particularly anxious time for students and their families and has apologized to students and parents who may have been led to believe they were admitted rather than still on the wait-list," university spokesman Ricardo Vasquez said in a written statement.
In 2009, U.C. San Diego mistakenly sent admissions notices to about 28,000 applicants who actually were rejected. An apology was sent within hours.
