Hey y'all,

I sent my PS in to one school after doing some editing, but later noticed that it's missing the word "the," for example, "I ate hot dog" instead of "I ate the hot dog."  I'm wondering if I should send a correction via express mail or something, or just let it go, and whether or not it's fatal.

If you have the #'s then a typo or two isn't going to hurt you...

I found two typos on my resume after I sent it in and they didn't hurt me at all.  Sending in a correction will only call attention to a problem that might otherwise get overlooked and won't matter even if they spot it.

Don't send the correction.  Try to put it behind you...
