Spelling Error on Diversity Statement - Resubmit?

Postby ml1212 » Sat Feb 04, 2012 4:21 pm

I just realized that in a quick last-minute edit to the old adjective i had in my diversity statement to "distinct" I must have hit an extra letter and it was misspelled "disntinct" - this is to UCLA, a school I am a borderline at best candidate for.

resubmit?
call them?
or just have nightmares about this until the end of time?

thanks.

The brain likes to fill in the right word automatically as long as it has the correct first and last letters. It is such a slight mistake that I wouldn't worry about pointing it out to them, chances are they won't even realize it.

don't worry about it. ucla admissions reads quickly. they probably won't even notice it unless you point it out to them.

It will stand out among all the perfectly written diversity statements and underline the diversity you would bring. This is a good thing.

I wouldn't worry about it.

Two of the schools I got into this cycle (one reach and one target) had apps with stupid and obvious typos. As difficult as it is for us TLSers/type-As to leave it alone, it's probably TCR.
