Messed up on personal statement

Postby CYP » Thu Jan 24, 2013 1:40 am

Hello everyone! I just realized that I made two punctuation errors on my personal statement. Problem? I already submitted my application to three schools. Do you think that will hurt me? Should I contact the schools or just let it be?

It might hurt you, but probably not much. Don't contact the schools, it'll either draw attention to it or make you look low self confidence.

I had a grammar error and a punctuation error in my PS. Got into 75% of my schools. Don't worry too much.

Yeah, don't worry about it. I made a error in mine where I used a wrong word in a sentence and it hasn't seemed to affect my cycle at all.
