Mistake in Application - Advise Needed [#permalink] New post 22 Mar 2006, 08:41
Hi,

I just submitted my application for an MBA over the weeked, assuming it started in Jan 2007. After submitting it, I realized it actually starts in October 2006. As such, I have made a couple of minor mistakes and am wondering if I should contact the admissions office to inform them or whether I should just try and let it go unnoticed. There are 2 places in the application where I have made the mistake:

1. Question in the first page of the application - Age at Sept. 1 of the year the program starts - I put 29, assuming it starts in 2007 but it should have been 28, as it actually starts in 2006.

2. On the header of each page of my essays I put "MBA Applicant - Jan 2007". This is also incorrect.

Do you think the admissions office will hold these mistakes against me? Is it better to not contact them and mention it to them later?

Your advise is much appreciated.

These sound minor, but it would be a good idea to contact the Admissions office anyway. I don't think it would hurt you, but the follow-up shows diligence and attention to detail.

Fahd,

Accepted.com does concur with Drummond's response. I think the age error you mentioned is hardly worth mentioning, but the "January 2007" error could be confusing to the adcoms. I would email them an *extremely* brief correction, but I would not mention that you confused the start dates. Just say it was a typo or unintentional error and leave it at that.

Good luck!
