I was looking back at my application PDF after submitting, and I realize that I accidentally checked the box saying I previously applied to Columbia when I most definitely did not. This was the only school I made that mistake for. Is it possible to fix this? Or did I just throw away my money?

1) you cant fix it
2) it will be a typo/oversight, that you can send an update letter if you are really paranoid
3) Or just leave it alone as no one will care or notice.
