Oh no, I just noticed that my long since submitted personal statement is missing the period at the end of the last sentence. Is that a big deal, I also noticed one other typo on my app. Dang I must have read through that application a billion time, and still two errors. Suckage.

They read through that stuff really quickly and I doubt they would pick up on the typos. If they did, I think adcoms have enough sense not to judge your whole application on the basis of a couple small slip-ups.

A missed period! :eek:

Oh, you mean a a typo. Never mind. :laugh:

With any luck, the readers will miss it just the way you did when you read it. Be extra careful with the secondaries. They can forgive one mistake but they'll nail you for the second.
