A bunch of high school students got very excited, and then very disappointed, thanks to a mistake from The State University of New York at Buffalo.

The school mistakenly sent 5,000 acceptance emails to students who applied and had to send another email hours later apologizing for its error.

“In fact, we are still reviewing your application for admission and haven’t made a final decision on your acceptance to the university,” the email signed by vice provost Lee Melvin read, according to the Buffalo News.

The mistake was made when the school intended to send an email reminding students to fill out applications for federal financial aid but a “miscommunication occurred when an incorrect email list was generated from an applicant database,” the News reported.

“The University at Buffalo sincerely regrets this error, as well as any stress it may have caused students and families who received the letters,” the statement read. “Within three to four hours following the discovery of this error, the university sent a letter of explanation, offering its sincerest apologies to those who were affected. The university’s Office of Enrollment Management has taken immediate steps to ensure that errors of this kind will not occur in the future. We know that this can be a stressful time for prospective students and their families. The University at Buffalo deeply regrets this unfortunate error in communication.”
