Hi guys,

After all the advice you guys gave me on an e-mail I was writing to several universities, I still manage to screw the bl**dy thing up!

I decided just to do 2 e-mails to the 6 universities to save time, 3 for the one type of course 3 for the other. WHY WHY!!! I thought it would be smart to use BCC for the e-mail addresses...big mistake.

I totally forgot that the people in the BCC box would be able to see the normal To address. I might be predicted ABBC but I'd get an F for common sense.

When I reasiled what I had done, I tested it out on 3 of my e-mails. To my horror I was right.

It's not too bad, you only sent the same email to 3 unis, not 6

why is that a problem? they know you're going to be applying to more than just them, might even make them fight to win you! although more than likely they won't notice.

Doesnt BCC mean blind carbon copy, as in they dont see the other adresses as opposed to CC where they do
