Northeastern BLUNDERS

SOOO in my Northwestern supplemental I wrote "northeastern" once in my supp and I didn't capitalize Middle East once. I didn't even know northeastern was a school I just mixed it up because I was talking about the middle east so for some reason I merged the phrase. Throughout the rest of my essay I used the correct school and capitalized Middle East. Does this destroy my chances of getting in ? Has anyone ever done something like this and still gotten in. smh

    I’m going to be honest. I just checked out your prior threads. First you said you made mistakes on your resume and asked if you should fix it. Then you said there were mistakes in your recommendations and you asked if you should fix that. Now you have discovered mistakes in your essay. There seems to be a pattern here. It sounds like your application is full of mistakes. It’s too late to do anything about it now. Submitting an optional essay at this point will just look like another mistake. It will look like you forgot to submit it on time. Next time proofread before you hit submit.
