I just read in a thread that someone "replaced" an essay that had been already sent to a school. In other words, he sent an updated copy, if I understood well.

I was wondering if anyone has done that before? Let's say, I sent an essay to Harvard, and later sent that essay to Princeton, but I made changes and made it so much better.. and therfore, begin to feel unsatisfied with the copy I sent to Harvard, so I just call the admissions office and tell them that my essay has an error, so that I would like to fax a new copy.

Has anyone done that? Is that possible at all?

Isn't it a little late to be thinking about this stuff?

I would say that most Ivies aren't going to let you resend an essay. Especially this late in the game. Decisions, for the most part, are made.

It's fine. I found two typographical errors in my essay to one school, so i resent it to my counselor and they got rid of the bad copy. It worked and I got accepted.

I sent a replacement essay to the UC's. They received it and attached it to my application (at least that's what I was told...)
