Apostrophes in the personal statement

I just went to paste in my essay on my application, and every apostrophe turned into an upside down question mark. Has anyone else encountered this error?

Edit: Found a fix—they can be manually reinserted.

That happened to me as well. I think it might be a way how they check if people proofread their essays or not. Good job correcting them!

Many word processors convert apostrophes into smart (open/close) quotations - these extended characters may not map correctly into standard ASCII forms. Always double-check the content you cut/paste into the SA application forms.
