Mistake on Sent Application

Postby KME89 » Thu Jan 26, 2017 11:49 am

Alright, so I made a massive error and failed to list my major and GPA on my applications to my laughably unrealistic reach school, a safety, and a realistic contender. I've since fixed the error and all is well for all the applications I have since sent out. Now the question is, do I go back and call attention to the error and ask for it to be updated at those three schools? Do I just contact the realistic contender? Do I not contact any of them? The missing information is all found on my resume, but if they're just sorting applications quickly, this could be a huge issue, right? While my uGPA is not the most impressive number, I also did not include the GPA for my graduate degree, which is impressive. Again, that info is also on my resume.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Just send the admissions department(s) a quick email with the information to be added. No need to make a big deal out of it.

You're dealing with law school admissions people here, not the KGB. They'll understand if you call/email to notify them!

I made this same error, and I am not too worried about it. My undergraduate pre-law advisor reviewed my application and he didn't even notice the lack of GPA. When I spoke to him about this (obviously upset because I had already submitted all my applications) he told me not to worry about it because my GPA is listed on the CAS report and my resume. Still feeling a little uneasy, but I guess he is the professional!
