    Hey guys,

    I sent in my AADSAS stuff and I was just passively looking at my essay and I noticed that I did not delete a word in a sentence. I mean it doesn't totally change the meaning that I intended to give but it just kills me that there is a word that shouldn't be there. It makes my sentence look like a fragment. Should I worry about this? Is there a way to change it or not? The rest of my essay flows very smoothly and I am very proud, but I am so upset that I couldn't catch that small mistake. Do you think it will make a huge impact? Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks

    This shouldn't be a problem. Dental schools aren't gonna fault you over a sentence. They look at your application as a whole. So, don't stress.

    It should be fine - i found a doubled word in my personal statement after submitting it last summer, and (apart from freaking out) did actually get into my dent. school of choice.

    good luck!
