Unforgivable mistake?


Recommended Posts

Just re-read an application and realized that I wrote (in reference to a research center affiliated with the department) "Universal Center for..." rather than "University Center for...."

Should I be worried? Would I draw too much attention to it if I contacted them?

Seems pretty marginal to me. Not that we should fail to proofread our essays, but I doubt anyone considers themselves infallible in this regard and I find it hard to believe that judgment will rain down to harshly over this.


If it really bothers you, contact the admissions coordinator and ask if you can replace a draft to correct an error.

Don't worry! I know it sucks... I made a similar mistake (didn't change the header on one my resume for one school). It happens, and it's best not to worry. We could drive ourselves to insanity and back.
