BALTIMORE, Maryland - Getting a college rejection letter is already hard enough to deal with, but no one wants to get rejected twice.

That's exactly what happened to almost 300 applicants who were trying to get into Johns Hopkins University.

The university apologized after sending "welcome" emails to 294 students who had already gotten rejection letters or deferrals.

Turns out, whoever sent the emails did so by mistake.

University officials say the person grabbed the wrong list of email addresses.
