Application Mistake! [#permalink] New post 04 Nov 2010, 01:00
I applied to a top MBA last month round 1, I feel my essays were quite strong and I had a consistent story. However, when I clicked on submit, I assumed it would be like other schools where they ask you to review one last time but they did not and I realized I had missed a field (nationality) so I emailed them about it.

Later I realized that there was a question in the application that I had not compeletely asnwered. They asked if I think that my academic performance reflects my ability to succeed in an MBA. If yes, why? If not, why not?

I did not realize the asked why so I just said yes though I have a lot of proof and argument as to why I would succeed.

I noticed this mistake but decided not to report it as I had already reported the nationality omission. It kept haunting me the WHOLE month so I just emailed them about it last week.

I am VERY worried this will affect my chances.

Any thoughts??

The easiest thing to do is to call the Admissions Office of the school, explain what happened and that you emailed them last week. If they have not yet reviewed your application, you might be able to submit your explanation and not have it affect your chances. Good luck.
