    Default Mistake at the Motivation Letter. Was it too bad?

    Dear friends,

    I sent an application for LL.M program last week and I was just re-reading the motivation letter I sent them. That's when I realized I made a mistake by writing "economical politics" instead of "economic policies"... Before sending it, I read it a thousand times and I just didn't see it until now! Do you native English speakers believe this is a terrible mistake? I am worried, because I believe the rest of the letter was quite good, and I really don't want to miss the chance of being accepted because of this...

    Thanks a lot!

    You have posted this in two separate sections. It is confusing to post duplicate questions. I am closing this thread - people will still be able to answer in the Editing and Writing Topics section.

    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
