Relax. Just be clear about what you want in your interview.
No. You can't send an updated PS. And you don't need to anyway. They aren't reading every word of your personal statement so don't worry about it.
you're fine, just explain thoroughly in your secondaries and don't reference your mistake.
on another note, i think it's hilarious when people use dramatic phrases like "destroy my chances of admission" and other such things. we should all do it more often.
i think you actually can resend for update....but yeah like everyone said don't worry too much about it
Scientific research, clinical research, yeah there's a difference but not really at this point for apps. As long as they know youre interested in research thats good enough. It shouldnt be a problem. From what youve said, it doesnt seem too confusing. I think the adcoms will be able to see what youre getting at. i confused primary care with all first reviews of a patient in my personal statement last year as well. I still got interviews and acceptances. I wouldnt worry too much about it, everyone makes a few errors or typos on their apps. Just try to minimize them, thats all you can do.
I think you're screwed, personally. And not because you made these "mistakes" on your app, but because you're likely going to come across as a person who thinks she knows too much about what she wants.
I'm hoping that last post was sarcastic, cause it was mean But, yeah, it's good to talk about your interests and goals if you already have an idea, but since you haven't gone to medical school yet, you might not want to sound too set on one path, especially because it could warrant why not MD/PhD or just straight PhD questions, etc... It might be better to indicate an interest, but seem open to other areas of medicine as well...And don't worry about the "mistakes" you mentioned, they really don't sound bad at all-- good luck
Geeze. I thought this thread title was gonna be serious, was expecting to see a real "big mistake". Like hitting submit without typing in your PS or something.
just so you know....
to sound more like a stud, basic research with clinical applications has in recent years been coined "translational" research. as in translated from the lab to the clinic. there is something sexy about the word.....
Good point. That really is the new buzz-phrase.
I don't see a problem with that.
i think it reads fine anyway. i made a similar mistake on my app. mistakes like this rnt gonna keep you out of school. mybe a 22 would, but not this.
Yeah or doing a "fake"/funny essay and accidently hitting the submit button.
Like-- yeah yeah I want to be a doctor so I can look at vaginas..
hey, don't make fun of my essay..
