URL typo on my first 4 apps

Postby anewaphorist » Sun Oct 30, 2011 6:47 pm

I recently noticed a typo in the URL I provided in my resume (linking adcoms to some of the work I've published). Those stupid underscores erased when the hyperlink auto-underlined (possibly the lamest shit ever). I realized it before I sent out my other apps, but any ideas on what I should do about the possibility that they try to visit the page and it doesn't exist? Don't want them to think I'm lying or something...

Fix it and send it to the schools. Just tell them to update your file.

This isn't something to worry about. Two reasons:

1) Admissions reps aren't going to visit the link. They don't have time to read your written work.

2) Even if they did attempt to visit the link, they would likely just assume that the URL had changed for some reason outside of your control - that is quite common (unless it is clearly a link you created - on http://www.anewaphorist.com, for example).
