Everyone makes mistakes, it’s only human.  So, I see no problem in making ourselves feel better by knowing there are other people out there who made similar mistakes or have done worse.  I for one, when I was applying to law school, sent one application out where in the cover letter it said “…and that is why I would make a great addition to [INSERT SCHOOL NAME HERE] Law School.”  !!!?!??!  Needless to say, I did not get into that school.  I’m sure you’re shocked. Lesson learned – have someone proof read your resume and cover letter!  But, if you do make a mistake, it happens, don’t beat yourself up, and read this – it will make you feel better.
