I have submitted application for 2 schools so far. Just to see how my essays looked after a few weeks, I read all of them today.
I caught 2 tp 3 mistakes namely, absence of commas in certain places, inconsistencies in the names of people I used in the essays, even essay continuity issues. In fact, the more I reread, the more inconsistencies/mistakes I seem to find. Net result, I am so not happy with my submissions.
My question is - Is there anyone out there with a similar experience and if so, are you guys doing anything about it like writing a letter to the school explaining the corrections or requesting resubmissions etc.
Any feedback is appreciated.
I caught a mistake or two on an application i submitted. the one i remember was an omitted comma. i was invited to interview.
i think inconsistency in name is a dealbreaker mistake. no amount of explaining can fix that.
leaving out commas and other minor mistakes like that may not get caught by the reader. but, a name inconsistency...whoa...
