typo... anything I should do?

Postby danields » Fri Dec 17, 2010 10:41 pm

"...legal education offered by the UVA Law will prepare me..."

Last line of the essay. How bad is this? Is there anything I should do?

177, 3.66, top liberal arts college, 2nd in nation debate

I would love to know the answer to this question (I did something similar).

177? Probably won't make any difference at all. Unfortunately, UVA yield protects pretty hard though.

I accidentally submitted my documents in the .docx form instead of the standard .doc.

It gets converted to PDFs anyway.

But OP, I'm curious to know the answer myself. I forgot an article in my PS. :(

I was being sarcastic, but in all honesty I don't think typos matter that much (unless you have a bunch of them). I had a typo in the first paragraph of my scholarship essay (don't know how I missed it), and I still got the scholarship.

@pwyoung - CEDA.

I am also in state.
Is there anything I should do? I am just upset because UVA is one of my top choices.
