MIT apologizes after email mistake

Posted: Updated:
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (WHDH) -

MIT is apologizing after accidentally telling applicants they had been accepted to the school.

The school sent an email to applicants to give them information about financial aid.

But the footer of the email stated: "you are on this list because you are admitted to MIT!"

It's not clear how many students received letters with the mistake.
