2 small typos after submit [#permalink] New post 10 Jan 2014, 08:53
I noticed two small typos in the application form to a top 5 MBA school. In the section about parents' jobs, I mis-typed "county" as "country"
In the extracurricular activities, I am missing an "of" in one sentence
Should I contact the admissions office or just leave it be? Is that considered diligent or rude/pushy?
To give background on the rest of my app: I scored in the 99th percentile on the GMAT overall, and my Verbal section breakdown was also 99th percentile. I have a 3.8 undergrad GPA from an Ivy.
I feel sick because I scoured my essay and resume multiple times to make sure there were no typos. I should have been more careful about the application form as well. I know that these things are not "automatic ding," but at the end of the day the adcoms need to make tough decisions so I'm nervous this could tip the scale when weighing my application against another applicant.
Thanks for your help!

Hi there,

I'm sure you were frustrated to notice the small typos after the fact, but I wouldn't worry about it! You are allowed to be human and those typos could be a whole lot worse as well. If they are impressed with your application and profile and want to accept you, those minor typos will not likely keep you out. Relax and keep us posted for sure! Thinking of you.
