Personal Statement Mistake?

Postby acs507 » Tue Nov 27, 2012 3:09 pm

So, I submitted my personal statement for an application but forgot to include my LSAC number at the top of the page. How important is this? Is it necessary to email the school to correct this?

Your post is too vague to answer properly, but if one school was confused, that's a sign that you may have a problem elsewhere.

No one was confused.
I just realized this after submitting. It is attached to the rest of my file as a part of the application online, just lacks the labeling of my LSAC number on top of every page.
I was just wondering if the formatting error was significant enough to shoot an email to the school.

I would't send them an e-mail unless the school specifically asked for the information on each page. They won't loose the statement because of it. But, If they asked for it, I would send it an e-mail with an amended statement.

....what? I didn't put my LSAC number on any part of my application outside of the bio parts that specifically asked and even then LSAC auto entered it. It did not hurt me.

Only one law school asked for this in the personal statement prompt just to include it at the top of the page. I just didn't catch it in time.

Thanks for answering!
