PS spelling mistake.

Postby blackswan » Sat Dec 25, 2010 4:32 am

I found a spelling mistake on my Personal Statement.
Mistake was the school name. Could be deadly. :(
I sent out my application on 12/23/10 and under Report Status, the report hasn't been generated. What does that mean? Application hasn't sent out to the school? Is there a way I can cancel and resubmit?

It's not too late so, call the admission office the first thing on Monday ask if I could send substitute page?

Don't worry about it.

It will either ruin your application or it won't. Or they'll care about it or they might overlook it.

Something like that would scare the shit out of me. There's no way they would not notice.


I agree. There's no way they would not notice.

The office is closed for the winter break till January 02; other than sending an email, there is not much I can do.
I freaked out at first, but I am trying to hold my sanity and write the politest e-mail request ever. :P

Don't worry. Just email them and say you found an error in your PS and to use the one you are attaching in the new email. I had to do this for 3 applications. Protip: Don't forget the attachment when you are sending the email to fix the original problem. (I did on one of them :x :arrow: :lol:). I still got into all 3 schools, so I wouldn't even worry.
