    I'm applying for a masters course at City University titled Ethnomusicology. But guess what? I spelt it "Enthomusicology" in my personal statement. Am I screwed?

    No. It's not great, but these things happen. I think the likelihood that a university would turn away an otherwise good candidate, on the basis of a typo, is minuscule. irrespective, there is little you can do about it now so try not to worry about it.

    I hope that's the case. I already sent them a second copy because of other typing errors so I don't think sending a third will help.
