Typo in PS! What to do..?

Postby thatcandoromg » Thu Nov 30, 2017 2:05 am

Omg... Shit happened. I just submitted the app to gwu law and later found a period was missing between two short sentences. Didn’t catch that for several times of proofread. Oh man...it’s a bad idea to do application things right after a PT.

What should I do??? I think it’s pretty obvious and it’s on the first paragraph. Panic... :(

It's over for you man. Start studying for the GMAT and consider B school or other options.

All kidding aside, it's not a big deal. There's nothing you can really do now anyway. So as the poster above me said, just chill.

ETA: you can update and re-submit a new version. But that may draw attention to it and show you didn't catch it the first time. I'm not sure what the best answer is here. Either way, still not a huge deal. It happens...

Dude. A single thread about this is only a little ridiculous. But two threads and a necro of an equally dumb seven-year-old thread is pushing it.

Calm down.

I understand the feeling. Although it may not make you feel any better, in my opinion you will be fine in all likelihood.

I believe there were actually three threads.
