Mistake in why x

Postby StopLawying » Tue Jan 03, 2017 5:49 pm

When looking over my why x statement that I already submitted, I forgot the capitalize a letter, wrote UCLA law instead of UCLA Law. This is the first time something like this has happened, what should I do?

Don't worry about it. They most likely won't even notice.

Well, it's been a good run, kid. You can pretty much only work in the fast-food industry now.

Honestly, both are fine. Get over it and focus on something substantial.

Before I got on TLS, I would've thought the same, but it seems like people here make a huge deal about typos. It's one of my top choices so it got me worried.

When has anyone made a "huge deal" about a single typo in a "Why X" statement?

If it means anything (which it does not), I had to read your post twice to even realize the typo.

I think the people that make huge deals over typos aren't referring to this type of typo. They're usually referring to legal documents in a biglaw setting, which is a lot different from a "why x."
