Guilty! Law school sends out erroneous admissions emails

(我們的疏失!法律學院寄出錯誤的入學通知電郵)

 

【摘要2022-10-12自由】孫宇青

The Northeastern University School of Law in Boston, Massachusetts, said in a statement it’s guilty of accidentally sending acceptance emails to former and current applicants.

麻薩諸塞州波士頓的東北大學法律學院在聲明中表示,他們犯下疏失,意外寄送錄取通知書電子郵件給歷屆及當屆的申請人。

The School blamed a "technical error" for the glitch, saying the erroneous emails went to more than 200 people who applied for admission starting next fall, as well as to nearly 4,000 former applicants, some of whom are already enrolled.

該院將這個疏失歸咎於「技術性失誤」,坦言錯誤的電郵已寄給預定明年秋季入學的200多名申請人,以及近4000名歷屆申請人,其中還有人已註冊入學。

Lakisha Papoutsakis, a single mother, who received the acceptance email, said that she has dreamed of going to law school since she was a child.

收到入學通知的單親媽媽拉奇莎帕波薩琪斯說,她從小就憧憬進入法學院就讀。

She shared the good news with her loved ones before noticing the follow-up email. "I was like, ’Oh my God this is so amazing,’ and then it was like, ’Oh no, sorry, April Fool’s Day,’" she said.AP

她跟親愛的人們分享喜訊後,才注意到後續的電郵。她說:「我本來心想,『我的天啊,這太驚喜了』,然後又覺得,『喔不,真遺憾,這是愚人節吧』。」(美聯社)

Melinda picks up a call from a salesman, Willie.

WI was wondering if I could drop by your office and speak to you about our great soaps, shampoos, and other beauty products since I' ll be in your area this week.

MI' m not sure. We already deal with a number of wholesalers for those goods. I don' t think we have a particular need to buy any more of them.

WI understand. However, I' d like to have the chance to change your mind. I think once you see our amazing products, you' ll come around.

威利:我明白了。但是,我希望能有個機會改變您的心意。我認為只要您見到我們令人驚豔的產品,您便會回心轉意。
