    I noticed that I made a mistake on my already submitted-application. A school that I attended from 06/2001 to 07/2001 I noted I attended from 05/2001 to 06/2001. This information would be shown correctly on my transcript, but now this information doesn't match up to what is correctly on my transcript.

    I'm wondering if I can - or should - contact the graduate admission office at the graduate school to see if they can change this, or if I should not bother. I'm hesitant to ask about this because I've already been e-mailing about another transcript that has been confusing them.

    Will this error make my application void or have it be tossed out or discarded?

    Thanks.

      I made an error on an application and talked to an independent company who manages all the online applications for various schools. So if it was online, you might not even have to talk to the graduate school. I doubt anyone would even notice, but if it would make you feel better to change it, I'm sure they don't care.
