Incorrect Statement of Purpose - What to do about it?

Question

So, today I noticed that for my Personal History Statement and Statement of Purpose for Berkeley, I addressed the university as "Berkeley University" instead of its actual name "University of California, Berkeley". Guess I got a bit lost amidst so many applications..

How damaging is this error? Should I contact the Admissions Office trying to get these docs updated ?

This process just became a little more frustrating :(

Tks!

It's hard to say how damaging the error is. Someone might be offended; another might understand how busy applicants are and ignore it completely. That said, in my opinion it's most likely only as egregious as a typo, and thus I wouldn't contact the admissions office to correct it.
