CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - The University of Virginia says a law school administrator accidentally sent an email with the personal information of 155 students.
Officials say the email sent earlier this week via a school mass mailing list included a spreadsheet that contained GPAs, class ranks and personal biographical information on students who are applying for clerkships.
The email did not include social security numbers or financial information.
The Daily Progress reports that the error is the most recent in a string of accidental disclosures of personal information at the Charlottesville school in the last several years.
Most recently, the Social Security numbers of about 18,700 students were erroneously included on health insurance brochures sent last summer via postal mail nationwide.
