Application Mistakes :(

Postby austinlove » Sun Nov 12, 2017 5:33 pm

On my resume, I noticed two mistakes: the formatting on two bullets is to the right (not aligned correctly), and I added periods on two sentences that should not be there (i didn't use periods throughout)

so stupid, i was in such a rush to be done, but I always read how dumb it is to mess up apps and to proofread. Should I email them updated copies, or not draw attention to them? and how bad are these mistakes?

Well, you're pretty much done. No law school will take you, and you'll be lucky to ever have a job after this massive, irrevocable fuck-up. I hope your parents are rich.

(In case you can't tell, that was sarcasm. Relax.)

I had a grammar mistake in my resume that I only discovered after I had applied to most schools. I got accepted into my #2 choice today, the first I've heard back from. Mistakes are never good but I bet most people have at least one hiding in there somewhere. I don't think you should email them over this.

thank you guys, I hope you are right. The Dean interviews just always stressed this stuff and seemed to take a hard stance, can't believe i did it! lol. Hoping for the best.

Nothing you can do without looking a little neurotic. If there is a change on your resume you can always send an updated one. That's probably the best way to cover a mistake. If you can't do that then don't worry. It's not a big deal and plenty of people have mistakes on their resumes.
