    Sooo I’ve just noticed that I made two major typos in my personal statement. The first one is in the beginning paragraph. I wrote Hemingway with 2 ‘m’s instead of one but I think this one is easily overlooked since none of my correctors have said anything about it. However, the second typo is more major.
    I originally wrote ‘peaked’ but my corrector said it should be ‘piqued’ instead so I went to change it but I only erased half the word so it became ‘piquked’! This stands out like a sore thumb especially since it’s in the beginning of a new pragraph. I’m worried because i’ve already been rejected by two universities. Can this be the reason why?

    Although it’s not great to have two typos like that, I doubt they’d reject you because of it
