What to do if my zip code is wrong on about 10 of my apps..?

Postby shock259 » Tue Jan 19, 2010 2:37 am

Hey guys,

I recently completed about 18 applications. While reading some of them through again, I noticed a slight problem: Somehow, for about half of the apps, my zip code on my permanent address got switched and overwrote my zip code on my mailing address. As such, my mailing address for Washington DC has a zip code in Denver, Colorado. Hmm.

10 schools have the incorrect one.

My apps went in about 2 days ago. Should I notify all of the admission offices? Email? Only 1 or 2 have sent emails that they received my application, so it seems premature at this point. It's also sort of embarrassing. Should I disregard it? The rest of the address is entirely correct. Perhaps any mail will get routed to the correct place?

Just send them an e-mail indicating the zip code is incorrect and providing the correct one. It should be no problem at all. I just notified all my schools of a new address and they all responded within a day (faster than fee waiver solicits.) I don't see how this would be any different.

Thanks.

I'll send an email in a few days.

Even if they already sent something to the wrong address, the post office is pretty good at getting the letter where its supposed to be.
