UPENN essay error

Hi. I applied to the Weitzman School of Design at Upenn for the fall of 2021. I looked over my essay today just to look over what I wrote. Then I realized I made two writing errors on one of my essays. Will this completely kill my small chance of getting in or even getting on the waitlist?

Having two minor grammatical errors is not going to kill your chances completely, so do not panic. The best advice I can give is to make sure this doesn't happen again. You can attend live essay review live streams on CollegeVine. They can be very beneficial.
