Stanford University’s admissions process has been rocked by the revelation that some students who apply to the university without a university admission are receiving free lottery tickets.
The free lottery is a popular option among applicants to the University of California at San Diego, a school whose students are among the nation’s most highly selective.
It was introduced to help those with limited resources afford admission to the state’s top universities, and it has long been used by some applicants to other prestigious universities.
But in an email, Stanford President William C. Dillard confirmed that some of those students, who have not yet applied for admission, have been receiving free tickets.
Stanford’s admission department will be in touch with those who have received the tickets to provide further information about the process, Dillard said in a statement.
Stanfield’s admission process has had a rough go of it this fall, and its students are now facing some of the same problems that they did in the fall of 2015.
In December, the university announced that some applications for a class of 2019 that had already been processed were not being processed.
Those students who had applied to the class were also denied a seat at Stanford.
Stanage is among a few elite colleges that has faced challenges in processing applications for 2019 and beyond.
In January, a federal judge rejected an application from the University the Department of Education for waivers to the Common Application, the primary admissions process used to assess student merit.
That ruling came after a hearing on a request from the Trump administration, which had requested waivers.
Stanley has also struggled with enrolling more than a million students.
It had hoped to enroll more than 13,000 students this year, but a few months later, the number stood at 6,600.
It is expected to enroll a higher number this year because of a surge in applications.
