English mistakes, shame on me!

Postby Yuri » 14 Jan 2017, 16:49

Hello guys, I am desperate, I think I have done something really stupid.
I collected my papers and sent them without problems but the very minute after sending I have realized that in my letter there was an english mistake: I have used contribute as a noun (so I wrote "... give my contribute..."), but actually it is a verb. I am so stupid I know. Do you think that I ruined everything?
Thanks for any moral support :(

Hey Yuri, I don't think you ruined anything! I mean, I'm sure the rest of the letter is good and also your application, just be confident about that! That is clearly a tiny mistake that we all make from time to time... no reason not to be selected!
P.S.: I have to confess that if I had made that mistake I would freak out too, but that's just because we really wanna be selected! No objective reason to worry :)

I highly doubt that kind of mistake does have any impact.
Furthermore, I can imagine that many people do apply, who do have bigger mistakes in their application.

So no worries, good luck!
