Letter of Rec Typo

Postby logicgames_darling » Thu Oct 24, 2013 5:29 pm

So one of my professors just wrote me and amazing letter of rec and sent it in. She also gave me a copy to keep for my records and as I read it, I really was touched. The thing is as I was reading it there is a typo when she comments on my work ethic. Instead of saying "resident advisor" she refers to me as a "resident director". Technically they are two different positions since a resident director is my boss. My question is am I just overreacting? Obviously my resume will say "advisor" but is it something adcoms will overlook because it wasn't an error on my end? Or should I just ask her to potentially change that one word and resend it to LSAC?

Any thoughts are appreciated!!

1) No one cares about typos (sort of?) you didn't create.
2) No one cares about letters of recommendation.
3) No one cares about anything but your GPA and your LSAT.

Don't create work for yourself. ;)

Bump because I have a similar question... My professor mixed up my major and minor on my rec. It was only mentioned once, and was brief, but still mixed. Something to have corrected? Or should I not worry about a typo like that either?
