Hello, I had applied for CMU MISM 12 months course, whereas I intended to apply for the 16 months course. I understand that this is a grave mistake from my end. The reason I was opting for the 16 months is that my undergrad is not related to programming so the 16 months course would be better for me. Do you think it would be sensible to mail the admissions committee and ask them to consider me for the 16 months course?
So I made an error in my email to a potential advisor when expressing my interest in her lab. I bymistake wrote the wrong lab name. This was 7 days back, and she hasn't replied. Will this affect my chances of admission? Is there anyway I can rectify this?
Yes, I'm kicking myself. A few weeks after submitting MPH applications to two schools, I realized I calculated my GPA wrong--and included the error on my resume in my application packages. My alma mater uses a different grading system (marks in percentages, not letter grades or GPA) so I asked my coworker (a current grad student himself) how to convert my average to a GPA on a four-point scale. Guess we were both wrong. Gah, I put GPA of 3.4 on my resumes, when it should actually be GPA of 3.7. I included my official university transcript, so they can see my real grades. I can't help but worry that they looked at my low GPA listed on my resume and will toss my application in the reject pile. Wonder if it's too late to contact the universities and explain my mistake, maybe submit a corrected resume?
