Typo on LSAC application - should I correct it?

Postby 38981928 » Tue Oct 31, 2017 2:21 pm

For a school that requires the employment to be listed on the application, I accidentally typed the wrong end year for an internship (I put 2015 instead of 2014). It is very clearly a typo and not an attempt at misleading the school; the "Reason for Leaving" states that it was only a one-semester internship for class credit, and my resume has the same internship listed with the correct date. Should I call the school? Should I email them? Not bother?? Should I basically accept my chances for that school are over?!? :( I submitted the app on Sunday.

I am above both of the school's 75th percentiles so I was scared of being YP-ed, but I did write a Why X essay that I thought was pretty sincere (and I am genuinely very interested in the school). HELP :oops:

Just e-mail them and tell them the correct date. Doesn't seem like a huge deal.
