    Hi, I just applied for the summer seminar, and after printing it out realized I put 58 inches for my height instead of 68 inches. Will this create a problem? I called the office and they said I couldn't change it. Thanks!

    Well the height to weight ratio is probably pretty out of whack...a normal 58" guy shouldn't weigh as much as a 68" guy.

    And besides the weight issue, which could actually be important, your bunk will probably be too short.

    Read back through the instructions. There are some comments on how to make changes or updates. I don't remember that as an easy process, however. Perhaps make a call to your BGO and see if they can get the info to the right person at Admissions.

    Assuming things work out ok (which they probably will... don't worry too much) you could use this experience as good fodder for a future application essay about your first lesson in "attention to detail".

    Good Luck.
