Help with commonapp!!

<p>Well I just sent all my college apps today and I realized that I picked the wrong topic for my essay (my essay was on a person who has influenced you but I selected another topic). I Just wanted to know how I could correct this and I hope this doesn't jeopardize my chances :.</p>

<p>mail the common app help desk with the problem. they might be able to address it</p>

<p>Yeah, but the commonapp has already been downloaded, so I dont think emailing commonapp will be of much use.</p>

<p>Can anyone else help?? Please??</p>

<p>Don't sweat this. The admissions people are bright enough to figure out that you checked the wrong box by mistake. It's not a big deal and I doubt they will penalize you for it.</p>
