HA. I am going into my first year and I remember a few months ago I received an email from some nursing college stating my acceptance, only to get one the next day apologizing that I was not in the program(which I never applied to).

Middlesex? Is this a normal UK University name? The creative side of my brain is beginning to think of alternate meanings to the word "middlesex".

You know what, I recieved a letter of rejection for an internship once, then a month later I recieve another one congratulating me in passing the interviews. When I called in they told me it was someone with the same name as me...

In the context of current events in the UK, this story is even more difficult for people. With high youth unemployment their are record University applicants this year, and it's very clear many are going to be turned away. Applicants are more nervous than ever, doesn't help matters if they're being incorrectly told their getting in then told they aren't days later.

glitches do happen, even to the best. remember the Pentium Bug, the Excel2007 bug, and recently Mark "the Turd" expense claims. somewhere lawyers are planning a class-action lawsuit for the undue anxiety and mental anguish the false acceptance caused to all these innocent kids.

Class-action lawsuits for "oh noez, i'm mentally scarred" only happen in America. In England the just get on with it.
