Is this a big deal??

Postby jfb » Tue Nov 09, 2010 11:52 am

I have a degree in Political Science, which at my undergrad is a BA. On my resume, I had BS in political science (rather than BA) as my degree earned. I have emailed the admissions offices regarding to point out and correct this error. I'm hoping that this is a minor issue, but Is this something that could have an impact on my admission??

Both are equally worthless in the real world.

Regardless, I want to be clear on which "worthless" degree I earned. And yes, ITT: someone who worked his ass off on LSAT and GPA is paranoid about stupid error impacting admissions

You've e-mailed the schools to clear up the confusion, there is nothing more you can do. I really wouldn't worry about it.
