Supplemental Essay Error

Hey guys, I sort of messed up the name of the professor for a really big university and now I am panicking. Should I send them a carefully worded apology because I really dont want this to affect my chances of getting in.

    Could you elaborate on how you "messed up the name of the professor?" Did you simply misspell his name? Did you put the name of a professor from a different school? It really depends on how big the mistake is. If you do not feel comfortable, you should write a sincere letter of apology about the mistake.

    I don't think that writing an wrong or misspelled name is a big issue and an simple apology letter will make things better.
