Another typo question

Postby mike0331 » Tue Dec 16, 2014 11:06 pm

On some of my submitted apps, I realized I used "affecting change" rather than "effecting change." While technically not completely incorrect (in that instance, the change itself was "affected" some of the time), I did mean effecting change. As far as I or any other of my proof readers can tell this was it, in fact my father, a CLS grad who spends 90% of his day reading missed it.

Should I even bother drawing attention to this through resubmitting a PS via email. They are holding my apps for review prior to my December LSAT score.

I'm leaning towards letting sleeping dogs lie. It's otherwise well written, or as well written as it's going to be haha.

Thanks for the thoughts

Mike

Definitely don't resubmit for that. It calls attention to both the mistake and your own neurosis. As is, there's at least a slim chance they might not notice the mistake.

Just leave it alone.

Also stop worrying so much.
