typo in rec letter from professor?

<p>A teacher from my summer math program wrote me a recommendation for the Ivies and MIT. He is currently teaching at UW and had previously taught at MIT, and U chicago. He praised me highly; however, he had a typo with my name, that it looked like he did it on purpose. He had my name spelt RIGHT in the first paragraph during the introduction; ever since that, he spelt it differently. He combined the FIRST letter of my first name and the LAST TWO letters of my last name... (my only has 3 letters each for the first and last name) Is that a major issue? or should i just ignore it thinking maybe he just called me by that?</p>

<p>My name is very hard to pronounce b/c it's just my Chinese name.</p>

<p>How do you know your name was spelled wrong, anyway? If he emailed you the text, he might be able to change it easily and print a new lot of letters. But if it looks like giving him a lot of trouble, just let it ride. As long as it has your name right first time, it should be okay.</p>

<p>he mailed me a copy so i can photocopy and send it to different schools.</p>

<p>Then leave it alone. Schools are used to it.</p>

<p>hmm.. alright then... i guess ill just leave it... anyone object this idea?</p>
