I made a mistake on Commonapp!

By accident, when it asked for "Number of Years Lived Outside of U.S.", I wrote 14 years, when in reality it's 17 years Now colleges will think I lived in the U.S. for 3 years when I never did.
I accidentally chose 14 because I lived 14 years in Canada and I just got mixed up. :(
I've already submitted my application to all of my universities, except 1

Is this a big mistake? Should I notify the colleges immediately?

Thanks in advance
