Common App Mistake - Freaking Out!

<p>i made a mistake on my common app 150 word essay..
i didnt know that on commonapp, if u highlight and paste, the highlighted piece still remains, therefore, i already SENT 2 nearly identical essays in a 300 word paragraph.. what do ido??????</p>

<p>.... You worry too much. It won't be that big of a deal- if you want to go ahead and tell the admissions office, then fine, but I wouldn't worry about it. They'll just consider it an error from the common app.</p>

<p>I made a mistake in mispelling something in my commonapp and freaked about it also. Mistakes are common, we are all humans. They will understand.</p>

<p>Clearly you are going to be rejected for this mistake. Clearly.</p>

<p>sarcasm at its most biting.</p>

<p>I had 2 typos in my common app and still got into my first choice. Don't worry about it. (But if you haven't sent all your apps in, correct it on another copy and send that to whatever school remains on your list...)</p>
