terrible terrible mistake

Postby splitinfinitive » Sat Oct 30, 2010 1:01 pm

I accidentally wrote the name of the wrong law school in the diversity statement. What should I do??? (It is probably a safety school but still, I feel terrible)

ha. I don't think there is much you can do besides call up there, and that would be ridiculously awkward.

they'll probably be offended, see it as "lack of attention to detail". reject. no use in putting yourself through the agonizing awkwardness of an explanation. but safety so no worries right?

Edit it to correct it, and email them the new one asking them to replace it. Don't specify the error and hope they oblige.

If not, oh well, it was a safety.

This.

And depending on how much of a safety it is, you should probably add another safety to your cycle.
