I misspelled my professors name for her LOR

Postby robo1378 » Wed Jan 08, 2014 9:02 pm

I submitted my apps and while looking at the status checker, I noticed a huge mistake I made. The way I spelled her name is incorrect. It's not a typo per se, it's just an alternate spelling of her name that is one letter off (ie. "rachael" instead of "rachel").

I tried to go change it on my LSAC credentials page it appears that I am no longer able to. Is this a big deal? what should i do?

Withdraw all your applications and re apply next year.

Jk, I think you will be fine. Call LSAC if you're still worried.

She can alter her name before she submits it, so if she didnt i would assume schools would look at it as her mistake.
