no
you shouldnt
if it were bigger than that, then yes-- but resubmitting would show an error in judgment, and point out something they might not have otherwise noticed.
I forgot to double space and emailed addendum... I HATE that I did that, but it isn't better to resubmit.

So do you think I should just not do/say anything, cross my fingers and hope that it'll be okay? :( :( :(

Unitalicized journal names screams ignorance to the adcomms. It's exactly the type of a mistake that lets them know you are not law school material. I hope you applied outside of T-14.

To be fair, you have a decent shot at Cornell, but don't expect any money.
