Um, So I made an online account for the site, but I put in the wrong SSN

I mixed up two numbers and before I realized it I continued. How do I change it? They don't have an option, and is it worth changing it? Or is that such a stupid error they're just going to reject me? What do I do?

    I would call and tell them. You need to report the correct numbers in general. And if you are applying for financial aid then you need it.

    So what if I just choose not to apply to Penn State? I thought about it and did some research and I realized I can get into Rutgers NB instead since they have comparative rankings in the majors I'm interested in, and it would be around 10K cheaper and would be closer to home for me. So should I still call them or does it not matter at this point?

    @MrPerson‌ if you no longer want to apply to Penn State then there would be no reason to call them...except to formally withdrawal your application if you have already applied. Is your application complete? If not you can just do nothing and they won't ever even look at your application.

    Well, if you decide not to apply there, then it does not matter since you wont be completing the app anymore. Only call if you decide to apply there, otherwise youre fine.
