Typo in my essay

So I accidentally wrote prosecution instead of persecution in my Emory essay? should I contact them to have it fixed? or just leave it?

    Don't worry about it. The admissions officers read so many essays, so I don't even think they will notice it. A small typo is not going to determine whether or not you get accepted or denied. As long as you didn't mix up the school name with that of another school, you're fine. Hopefully this helps! :)

    It changes the whole meaning so I was worried :/
