Well... looks like I can kiss my chances at UChicago goodbye

Here's the typo I just found in my Why Uchicago essay:

"My interests in Psychology will also be nourished at the University of Chicago due to its active chapter of the Psychology Honor Society, which meets every Tuesday, and the Institute for Mind and Biology, which appeals to my fascination of the Brown."

I meant to say:

"My interests in Psychology will also be nourished at the University of Chicago due to its active chapter of the Psychology Honor Society, which meets every Tuesday, and the Institute for Mind and Biology, which appeals to my fascination of the brain."

I resent it just now...after changing it up:

"My interests in Psychology will also be nourished at the University of Chicago due to its active chapter of the Psychology Honor Society, which meets every Tuesday, and the Institute for Mind and Biology, which appeals to my fascination of the relationship between psychology and the body."

How screwed am I? The whole section is still unique to UChicago; the inclusion of Brown doesn't even make sense so it's not like (& I didn't) copy my Why Brown Essay and put Uchicago in place of Brown. IDK what happened...damn this sucks

    You're not screwed, especially since you resent the new version. I know people who have made similar typos and gotten into Yale, Cornell (to name a few). relax!

    It won't appear as though you used a Why Brown essay because honestly that doesn't make sense in the context of your sentence. Don't worry about it. :)
