    Hello,

    I recently received an email from stony brook indicating that I was missing one writing intensive course. In reality I actually have more than enough english courses i just miscategorized them. Will this affect my chances of admission and will AADSAS allow me in someway to edit this error.

    Thanks

    I think (hope?) most schools would have enough sense to not let this affect your chance to receive an interview. I mean, you have until matriculation so if you need 1 more writing class, so be it, you can take it later. Since you said you meet their requirements already I'd just call them tomorrow to clarify in case they won't review your app until then (which would be really stupid imo)

    Yeah this is probably common. A lot of courses I took in undergrad qualified as fulfilling more than one requirement towards my degree (ie one fulfilled a world studies requirement and english/writing course requirement at the same time or something like that). I would hope most schools know that if you got your bachelors degree, it almost certainly required at least two english/writing courses....but who knows.
