How closely do you think applications are analyzed for error

Postby be(au)ar » Thu Nov 08, 2012 4:51 am

In my personal statement, for example, I said I had been working at the age of 15. This was mostly under the table work, nothing serious. In the employment section of the application, I described my work experience starting from my first real job at the age of 17/18. Will this raise any eyebrows?

If you mention mowing your neighbors lawn as a kid in your PS, they wont be shocked to find it absent from your resume either.

Can you pay the tuition?

If yes, then they won't give a hoot about anything.

They probably won't notice. They need to read thousands of apps, so it'll be rather quickly.
If they happen to notice, they probably won't give a shit about a minor or understandable discrepancy.
Now if you claimed to have started your own company, and that's missing from your resume it'd be more suspicious
