A high school student in Aurora waiting to hear back from colleges says his family was one of those that received an erroneous email from the University of Colorado Colorado Springs this week implying he was accepted . . .
The email from university said “Welcome to the UCCS Mountain Lion Family” and went on to provide resources for the parents of future students . . .
Then, after a few hours, Ireland learned he had not been accepted. At least not yet . . .
The emails went out accidentally to more than 11,000 people. In addition to applicants like Ireland who are still waiting for the final word on acceptance, the university confirmed they also went to more than 500 people who had already been denied acceptance to the college . . .
