Turns out there was a typo in the essay. After proofing and pasting it, it appears that she leaned on the keyboard because there is a single, random letter within the essay. How big of a deal? I think they'll forgive her. Or not even notice.

My son is working on college applications now. He isn't sure whether he wants to major in communications, psychology, business or physical therapy, so we have a few schools on our list for each. When his counselor saw that he has 24 schools on his list, she called me and seemed annoyed, saying that was too many. She recommended we instead pinpoint schools that have all four majors or that he lists something general as his major and then he can change it if he figures it out later. But I only want him applying to the schools ranked high for each major.
