Every year, we get a panicked email or phone call because a student “messed” up on their application. Either they, forgot to send their official test scores; they put the wrong number of hours or weeks per year on one of their activities.
The natural response is to panic and assume that they are NOT getting in because of this error. This is almost never the case but many of these mistakes can all be either corrected or avoided.
Once you are done predicting every bad scenario possible, take a beat and analyze what is actually missing or wrong. Here are some common mistakes and how best to correct them.
Possible Solutions: If it’s still before the deadline and you have access to the testing administrator or your high school has a copy of your scores, you can have that person send your Official Test Scores by Email.
Problem: You put the wrong number of weeks or hours by mistake on your activities or resume or you forgot to put some piece of information on your application.
