Worst Discovery - Misspelled Name of NWU's legal clinic

Postby ash8309 » Wed Jan 05, 2011 2:23 pm

AH! Can't believe it. Just realized I sent in my PS to NWU and wrote about their "BUHM legal clinic" vs. their "BLUHM legal clinic." No idea how I missed it, I read it over and over. Should I email them a revised PS?? Do you guys think this will veto me? I realize it's just a small typo, but it's a pretty bad one in my opinion. PLEASE HELP!

I think it will be very obvious what you meant to write, so I don't know if this would warrant a PS re-send... I'll defer to others here, but I definitely don't think it would 'veto' you.

I do not think this warrants a re-send. I bet you have a pretty good chance this thing will be skimmed so fast, the reader won't notice.

Thanks guys. I just called the admissions office. They said this happens frequently and suggested that I send an email to their general admissions account with the word edited, and then also explain the error in an email and they would put it in my file. If I don't get accepted, I want to know it's not b/c of a typo! Thanks again all.

Are you referring to "NU" when using "NWU" ?

Nah, it will be because of the typo.
