ARGH!

Just spotted in my Cornell Essay # 2, after submission of course.

"...a firm which has this year has..."

OH NOES. AUTODING!

Refurb - you evil, evil man. Don't you know if you tell me to *not* look at something, I'm definitely going to look.

:P

Glad I found this thread !

I mentioned the names of current students in my essay and by mistake wrote "Class of 2017" instead of "Class of 2016" :roll:

I found this mistake after submission :| . Is it a big deal ? should i email the adcoms ?
