Is checking "Funding is required to attend graduate school".a mistake?


Recommended Posts

In one of my MS in EE applications, I have mistakenly checked "I require funding in order to attend graduate school". I can attend graduate school without funding too. 

I realized this mistake pretty late after submitting my application.

However in a short question that asked me to "provide a brief statement outlining your financial needs, skills and strengths for consideration in making financial awards", I have mentioned that my "I would like to be considered for aid but my enrollment is not contingent on aid."

Does checking that box negatively hamper my chances?
If yes, should I email them and explain?

EDIT: to clarify, I am an international student and not eligible for federal aid.

This is probably almost entirely dependent on the program's policies.  You might be able to contact the department and correct the error/ask if it is a problem.
