Congratulations! You've been accepted!

**Several hours later--sorry, you haven't been accepted.**

That's what happened to more than 5,000 prospective students who were mistakenly notified by email that they had been accepted into the State University of New York at Buffalo, an upstate New York university.

According to CNN, University at Buffalo spokesman John DellaContrada says the acceptance email was sent to students whose applications hadn't been fully reviewed. He says the university sent a second email about three to four hours later notifying the students of the mistake and apologized for the error.

However, here's some good news, the university said that the students who received the incorrect email are still being considered for acceptance by the university. So, if you applied, got accepted and then got rejected, you still have a chance! Good luck!
