Should I resubmit DS w/ typos

Postby IronSkadden » Mon Nov 14, 2011 2:46 pm

Hi there,

I made the same type of typo twice on my DS; I forgot to include a preposition linking two verbs. (To wit: "It will allow me provide..." instead of "It will allow me to provide...").

Do you think this mistake, repeated twice in a DS, warrants sending a correct version of the statement to the school? Or will this draw too much attention to it?

FYI: I'm a borderline candidate.

Thanks for your insight.

Do you mind me asking what school it is?

Though I realize it would be helpful to identify the school because it would allow you and others to determine the level of leniency in their admissions process, I'm going to refrain from revealing that info.

Well, if it were me, I would contact the school and ask if you can submit and updated DS.

How about you just give a range of their ranking?

Your hesitation to reveal your prospective school(s) is understandable and, considering there are multiple typos, this seems to be your best bet.
