Minor mistake on my application

I think I'm going to jump on the "rescinded admissions" bandwagon. While I don't think they won't rescind me for this, I was curious if this is important enough to call and get changed.

On the application it says to list any summer school courses as if they were part of the upcoming year (e.g. list a summer class before 11th grade as an 11th grade course.) However, apparently it said to place any summer classes taken before 12th grade as if it were before the 11th grade. I didn't know this, so I put my ART 101 class under 12th grade (I got an A in that class.)

Will this be an issue at all? Should I call them? Or is this negligible? Thanks.

    It does not seem like anything significant. As always, call the admissions office to be absolutely sure, since only they really know the policies.

    so are you saying you entered your letter grade in the 12th grade? I think we were unable to put a letter grades for senior year courses. Anyways, shouldn't be a problem, esp since it was an A. Since you put it on your 12th grade, it wasn't factor into your UC GPA. Normally, an A will have a positive impact.

    unnecessarily hot, did you ever contact them about your issue?

    I took a community college course during the summer between 11th & 12th grade, and I listed the course + grade in the 12th grade section.

    The UCLA Admissions FAQ says this:
    # If you took college courses during the summer session before the 9th, 10th, or 11th grade, list the course(s) (in the appropriate subject area) in the column for the school year that immediately follows that summer term, using the fall term column to list the grade(s).
    # Course(s) taken during the summer session before the 12th grade should be placed (in the appropriate subject area) in the 11th grade, using the spring term column to list the grade(s).

    This shouldn't be a problem right?

    I e-mailed them Saturday morning, but I don't expect to receive a response until tomorrow. I hope it won't be a problem.

    Alright. Please post here or PM me if you receive any updates from them.

    If they rescind either of your admissions for a simple error like that, I'll lose my entire faith in UCLA and drop out immediately.

    "As long as you reported the class on your application it will not affect your admissions. If you have any other questions please feel free to contact us.

    Thank you
