Missing Period in Cover Letter: Send Correction?

Postby Anonymous User » Sat Jul 21, 2012 3:18 pm

I just realized when I submitted my bids for OCI that three of my cover letters have a missing period after the "Thank you for your consideration. I look forward to interviewing with you[missing period]"

I was wondering if I should try to send a correction, or would pointing this out do more harm than good (like maybe they don't even read down that low)?

I just got on Law Review through a hybrid write-on, grade-on process at a good school. They may wonder how I slipped through the cracks.

Don't send a correction. It will only call attention to it. Interviewers I've spoken to say that the cover letter is the least important part of the application, they may not even read it.

And seriously? School range. This place gets crazier every day.

I grossly misspelled the firm name in one of my cover letters and still got a callback. Don't bring attention to it and don't sweat it.
