Some Corrections I Have Made While Applying for Summer Internships


1. “Your application form includes a question about whether I’m a freshman, ‘sophmore,’ junior, or senior. I am a ‘sophomore.’”

2. “Your About page touts your publication’s tendency to spark ‘discussionin’ a number of fields, but, as I’m sure you well know, those are two words.

3. "I want to apply to your internship. I clicked on a button that read ‘apply,’ but it appears the link is broken.”
