It's very likely they won't even notice. If they do, they will consider it a small typo or formatting error. This is not going to affect your application unless it's one of a whole bunch of typos or formatting errors. It's sure as shit not worth sending a revised copy, that will not only draw attention to it but a) it will make you look obsessively neurotic and b) if you have any other typos and they aren't fixed even in the revision you'll look like an idiot. Let it go. Deep breaths and strong drinks.

This will affect your application not at all. Forget about it and stop freaking out.

edit: If I were in your shoes I would be freaking out, so I am just going to say don't worry about it! They probably won't notice.

Agreed. Start figuring out alternate career plans. Have you thought about drug dealing?

Or retake and reapply next year. This year is lost though, give up now.

Thanks all for the reassurances and/or sarcasm! Of course I am aware that this came off somewhat neurotic, so your sarcasm is not lost on me. Butttttttt I think lots of people have a freak out moment when they look back at an app they thought was perfect (or at least error free) and suddenly have something glaring back at them so obvious it feels like it's jumping off the page.

Seen people on TLS discuss app mistakes in the past, and sometimes suggest sending revised copies, wanted to check if this qualified in anyone's opinion. Appreciate all the feedback! :D
