I decided that I was finished editing my essays last night and decided to submit my Umich supplements. I know I read and re-read my essays, but for some reason, this didn't catch my eye. I've read around the forums and it looks like other people were mostly fine, but I just want to make sure since now I'm re-reading the sentence and I can't skip over the missing word.

"My duty to the club’s goal awarded me with the stories and colorful smiles of those who we helped shaped my own goals with my current major."

I'm missing an "and" between "helped" and "shaped". The actual deadline for transfer apps for Michigan is February 1, and I'm debating on whether or not I should point out the problem to admissions before the actual deadline. Though this is the only error I found after submitting my four essays, it might be a little neurotic of me to do so. I'm more than a little worried since Michigan is my top choice for transfer.
