Good News/Bad News

My sister is applying to the local university here. She gave me her transcripts to hand deliver because they lost them (so she says).

Bad news - the whole damned university is under construction and I had to trek in my boots for like 2 miles.

Good news - they already had her stuff and they told me she was accepted so I got to call her and tell her the good news! She was beyond excited!

  • You are a great sister!! YAY for this good news!!

    I'm really surprised they told you she was accepted.  I work at a university and due to FERPA laws you cannot tell anything to anyone but the student. 

    Unless the student signs a special waiver giving a person permission to receive certain information from the university.  We cannot even confirm to a parent that their son or daughter officially attends.

    Parents get so mad because "I pay the bills!".  And we have to say: "I'm sorry.  Your son/daughter has this information in their online school account.  Please ask them." It's so crazy.

    I have no idea why they told me. I acted like her parent. Oh well...I got it out of them, regardless!

    Either way great news for your family :-)!  My boss would kick my asss if I ever did that.  And it is sooo easy to forget and just tell people info over the phone especially.  I trip up over it all the time and almost do it!
