Re: Small resume mistake

I think they would be more likely to notice the lack of consistency with punctuation if you sent them an update since they might look for why you chose to update them.
"New job? No. New responsibility/promotion? No. I'll have to take a closer look. Really?! He/she added periods?!"

Just a thought. With how much numbers matter to law schools these days, inconsistency with punctuation has a 1x10^-5% chance of impacting your admission/scholly.

So to answer the last question, yes you are worrying too much, and that's likely a good thing. It means you were pretty diligent with the application.
