*****! I messed up on my community service weeks per year!!

I REALLY messed up! For the weeks per year for my community service I put 38 instead of 36. Normally this wouldn't be that big of an error, but I specifically mentioned that it was associated with the science and technology club, for which I put the CORRECT 36 weeks per year.

What can I do?? Do you think they'll cancel my application based on this? Is there any way I could contact them and tell them that it was a mistake (Or maybe they could contact the school or something and they can tell them that I just made a mistake?)?

Ugh, finally done with my UC app and now I have this to worry about :(

    I'm pretty sure that there shouldn't be a huge problem... Off by two shouldn't be bad. If you can't get it off your mind, email the adcom.

    It's really not a huge deal -- if you had put 60 weeks, or something outlandishly impossible, then you should definately contact the school, but 38 vs 36 won't make them reject you.

    You sure they won't care? Most of my other EC's were 36 weeks per year (The number of weeks per school year), so I'm thinking it'd be odd to see something that's suddenly 38 (Especially since I said it was linked with an EC that's 36 per year). The 38's and 36's were divided into different sections (EC's and communnity service), which might help, but I still mentioned they were linked (both in my app and in one of my essays).
