Some words of comfort, my D spelled "discipline" disipline" on her app. to Ohio State. It was a typo. But I fretted over,that. Well, she got in the first day they released decisions so I guess it didn't hurt.
. Not that I am advocating bad spelling, but one word might not equal disaster.
And unless you are a dedicated philanthropist, community service isn't make or break. My D has very very little community service just because she is extremely involved in Cheerleading and dance...there is no time. I think section gets padded and it shouldn't. Kenyon admissions told us they dislike seeing activities added for the sake of length. She said they would rather witness how dedicated a student is in o.e area, than a million different groups.
