    I made a silly spelling mistake in my personal statement, mistaking one word for another, and no one seemed to notice. I only realised a few days later after it had been sent. Anyhow I got 5 offers so I don't think it made a difference. Don't worry about it

    You forgot to put inverted commas around one of the books you read? Omg! You might still make an offer or two, if whoever's reading is careless, but I wouldn't hold my breath!!!!1!

    Dont worry about it, some unis dont care in the slightest about your personal statement and even if they do you're not applying for English language (I doubt they'll even notice anyway)

    Of course not. Try to develop a bit of a sense of proportion, however difficult that may seem, because otherwise the wait for offers is going to be torture for you.
