Spelling error...

Postby isuperserial » Mon Dec 02, 2013 9:38 pm

So I sent out my apps in two waves, and I'm submitting to quite a few schools. However, most of the schools got an app with a PS that has "requires" spelled "requuires". Frankly I'm freaking out, and kind of hating myself for making such a stupid mistake. I changed it, obviously, for the last five schools, but that leaves quite a few that got the one with the stupid mistake.

What do I do?!

OP, I posted earlier today about a pretty similar situation that happened to me this cycle. Sounds like we've got nothing to worry about.

That eases my mind somewhat, but yours was an issue that they might not notice. Mine, on the other hand, is pretty blatant.

I wouldn't send an updated copy. As much as you notice it, I doubt schools will, and even if they do it will almost certainly have no effect whatsoever.
