This is meant to be a humorous parody of neurotic law school applicants, right?

As much as I like to integrate humor into my daily mishaps, I am (sadly) not parodying my mistake. This is a serious request for opinions.

1. You need to examine your life choices, because something has gone terribly wrong somewhere.
2. There's not actually anything wrong with that sentence, you know. Plus it's in a spoken quotation, so the grammar rules can be relaxed a bit.
3. Neurotically insisting on replacing a DS containing such a minor error (assuming there was an error, which there isn't) would hurt your chances about 9000 times more than a missing comma.

I left out an entire word in the first sentence of my PS that I sent to five schools.

They didn't seem to notice.

Your sentence is not grammatically incorrect. Inserting a comma would make it so :?
Just relax :P

Rinkrat, Scoobers, Theodore, and Gravitas - thank you all for the honest (& humorous!) feedback. My neuroticism gets the best of me on bad days, and today was the worst. Going to delete the OP and drown in a G&T now. 8)
