Noticed Editing mistake in PS

Postby aaronbgavin » Tue Feb 05, 2013 1:45 pm

I know this sounds silly, but I noticed a double and - "and and" in my PS. Its not in most of my apps - just one or two (but one or two bigs ones). It occurred as a result form editing back and forth to meet page length requirements. Should I try and email the schools to send in the same PS without the editing mistake? Or should i just hope the admission committee is understanding about making a silly mistake?

My resume had formatting issues for the first ten or so schools I applied to. It didn't change a thing in the way my cycle played out, so I would advise not drawing attention to the mistake.

I think sending an updated email with only that change would confuse them more than just leaving it. Lots of people made little mistakes like that, myself included.

Same here. Pretty sure it's nbd. As long as you didn't make multiple mistakes.

I honestly don't think they'll even notice, and even if they do, I really don't think it's a big deal. I think calling attention to it now - in February - would just make it into a bigger issue than it is.

Thanks for the advice guys. As much as it kills me to do so, Ill just leave it as is.
