Help! I submitted wrong version of ps

Postby Litts787 » Wed Nov 30, 2011 11:50 am

I need advice. The first school I applied to was DU and I submitted a version of my ps that I was unhappy with and have made some changes that I think have made it a lot better. This is the version that I have submitted with all of my other apps. Is it worth it to contact DU and say I submitted the wrong version and ask to consider my most current version? DU is a safety for me and with my numbers I should be a shoe in but I am worried this might just make me look like a dumb#ss for not proofreading the app.

Email them, attach a copy of the revised PS, let them know you wanted to send an updated copy. No big deal. You're good.

I'm assuming DU is Denver University Sturm.

I am not sure about e-mailing. It sounds like a good approach; however, I am unfamilliar with this process and I have never heard of anyone else doing this. I would seek out more opinions regarding this option before taking this course of action.

Update your PS with DU because your numbers & a sloppy PS may make them think that you are not serious about attending DU law.

P.S. It may be a chance to let DU know that it was the first law school to which you applied.

I sent the wrong resume on Saturday to penn and Michigan. I emailed the new resume but they both said tht they would not discard my wrong copy. Email it to admissions
