2,500 early decision applicants to Fordham University were mistakenly told they were accepted to the school, The New York Times reports.

On Wednesday — two days before they were supposed to hear Fordham’s decision about their acceptance status — about 2,500 students recieved financial aid letters informing them they had been accepted to the college.

However, these letters were from a third-party contractor and Fordham was forced to tell students that “the notices had been sent in error and did not reflect their status,” according to The Times.

A Fordham spokesman told The Times that one fifth of the applicants who had recieved the email — about 500 students — had actually been rejected from the school, while the other 2,000 were deferred and would find out their final status in spring 2014.

The CEO of Student Aid Services, the company that originally sent the financial aid letters, told The Times, “We are devastated by the error that has occurred today and extremely upset by the anguish that we have caused.”
