I did notice on this second e-mail instead of telling me they had a lot of students from my actual home state, they changed it to "We have a lot of students from the Midwest." I wonder if someone actually wrote back and said, "Do you REALLY have a lot of students from Idaho? Nebraska? Delaware?" lol
I am not really sure where the senior paper is coming into play. Also, talking about changing your major is not really relevant to this addendum. I also don't think you need to talk as much about the swim team. I think gphil has some good points. Also, in this sentence -- With the change of the semester, a couple of things helped me make my peace with the space between Gordonís boundaries and the boundaries friends where setting for me. -- it should say "were setting for me" instead of "where."

I don't think I would worry about it too much. The job title "Project Assistant" sounds as if you are assisting other employees with their tasks, etc. which is basically something an intern would do. If you had put like, "Project Leader" or "Manager" or something that would be different, but I think "assistant" is fine. If internships were not acceptable, they would probably specify something like, "Only list paid experience" or whatever.
I am applying to UT and one of their mandatory attachments is a resume including dates of employment. It specifies "location (city and state) and dates of employment (month/day/year)." The problem is, I do not know the exact day I started and ended a job. Should I guess on an approximate date or just go with month and year? I know the months for sure, but the exact days I just don't know.
I would think that sending a revised one may just draw attention to the issue and leave them wondering, "What was wrong with her first one?" (hence search for a mistake) or even make it look as if you were unprepared when you first applied. This is by no means professional advice, but if it were me, I'd leave it alone. You can just hope that they will maybe skim over the error or even if they notice it, be able to overlook it.
