    You'll be fine. I've seen so many people send off personal statements which were... not the best, to put it nicely. Not the worst, but really not the best.

    As long as you made an effort with the context and structure, and havent made any other major errors, I am certain they'll understand that mistakes happen. I'm sure they see hundreds of spelling mistakes anyway. Don't worry too much.

    Im sure the rest of your PS is good, they will realise its an honest mistake and think nothing more of it.

    Did you not type it on Microsoft word or anything first to make sure there were no mistakes?
