Semi-neurotic question here

Postby MrShneebly » Mon Dec 05, 2011 3:44 pm

I made a couple small typos on an addendum sent to a school where I am an extremely borderline candidate - would it be worth it to resend it if it's my first choice? Troll responses are also welcome. Thanks.

I got into a couple schools where I noticed typos on the applications (i.e. switched word order or left out a punctuation mark). Doesn't seem to have had an effect on my cycle yet.

ETA: It might have affected me negatively at Cornell (LSN shows green dots all around my numbers but I haven't heard back yet). However, I feel like I've generally been out-performing my numbers even with minor typos.

Depends on how many typos, how small they are, and how neurotic you are. I found some minor typos in something of mine, but I am EXTREMELY neurotic. I figured whoever is updating the file is probably not the person making the final decision, so I might as well give myself some peace of mind. So I sent it again. (I thankfully had some other content stuff worth updating, so at least I could give them a legit reason for the update.)
