help..a typo in submitted PS

In a corner of my PS, I typed "career bath" for "career path"...

Looks hilarious, doesn't it? have rechecked for too many times and I have almost memorized it...yet still...

I am an international applicant, with an LSAT score right their median.

Is it advisable for me to write an e-mail to the admission office?

my score is 165 and now working in world's largest accounting firm, the applications I messed up are for T20-T30 in big cities, I feel awful because these are schools I sincerely hope to get in.

All advices are very appreciated.

Call and talk to an admissions councilor at that school.  Just state what you said there and ask, in their professional opinion, should you (or maybe that's your only option) to live with it - or if you can rectify your mistake.  That's about the only bath path available to you.

it is too late for you to do anything now.  these kinds of things happen all the time so don't worry too much.
