What is a mock transcript and why did you feel the need to share?

How egregious is the error? I'd be surprised if that was the reason

He probably means like an unofficial transcript. But dude. That's not the reason

I had a typo in my phone number in the copy of the resume I used on symplicity for all my bids. I found it before OCI and gave everyone an "updated" resume during my screeners without explaining what changed. I did pretty well, but I still wonder how many firms tried to give me a callback using the typo'd phone number and decided right then that I deserved an e-mail ding instead.

I forgot a comma in my interests, and had a partner ask me in a callback what "team trivia painting" was.
