    I swear I entered some incorrect info on accident on my questionnaire (like my high school's 9 digit zip) and it doesn't show on the candidate portal where to switch it (it's not under my request to change profile section); also i have no new files or apps being put into my candidate kit and I thought SLE apps opened. Is it just taking time for the admissions committee to check my questionnaire over or did the fact that I screw up completely cut me out of the process?

    How do you know you screwed up, Yet you didn't fix it during the process? Don't expect any sympathy but clearly explain in full detail the issue at hand, you are very early in the process so it may be forgiven. Talk to your FFR first, then your regional commander, explain why something is wrong, express your apology, and make yourself out as a candidate who simply made a small mistake. They may not care at all,but don't plan on it.

    My opinion:
    I highly doubt that mistyping in a zipcode will cause a delay. Happens all the time, but you should be more careful and review before hitting the submit button. Regardless, it's pretty minor and something you shouldn't stress about. I would send an email to the admissions counselor with an explanation that you might have mistyped the zipcode. Don't stress if you don't get a response right away. They are very busy this time of year.

    What else did you enter incorrectly? I take it is more than just your school's zip code.
