TYPO in letter of continued interest. I'm screwed!
« on: April 25, 2006, 08:46:50 PM »
I sent a letter of continued interest to USC. At the end it says, "I hope that you will take this information into considering, and blah blah blah."

I wrote consideration!! i swear I did!  but I must have let spell check do something or maybe I just messed up, but I sent the letter priority mail today. Oh my God I'm dying here, should I call and tell them to not open my letter or something? Help!

I had a typo in my personal statement, it did not hurt me at all. I really think they are just going to glance at your letter and glide right by the typo without even noticing. I know it is not much consolation, but really, try to relax and not worry about it.

If you call them then you attract attention to it.  Best to leave it alone.  I doubt it'll affect you though...

thanks for the encouragement, but i read it over very quickly and caught it. i'm sure they'll notice. but youre probably right, best not to call attention to it. this is what i get for typing so much on this board without trying to type correctly. sigh.

you know, between your incessant posts asking people how to write your LOCIs, your questions about whether you can send the same one to 2 schools, and now this, you strike me as a completely helpless neurotic.  You really need to learn how to do things on your own.  You also need some distance.
