Messed up email to POI: slink away in horror and shame or apologize?

Recommended Posts

Welp, grad student nightmare #456456 fulfilled. I forgot to change a sentence in a form letter email describing what my interest is in that particular professor's research. 


She emailed back somewhat snarkily (rightfully so, of course) and I have no idea how to respond. She's not a main POI of mine but I hate having this hanging over my head.


Any advice from others who have gone through the same?!

Thanks for the feedback. I've never felt like such a rude doofus.


Anyway, I sincerely apologized and asked if she might still be able to answer questions I had. She sent back a quick email answering and that's that! So I'm sure I came off as dumb but I guess not all is lost.
