Mistakes

Can it make or break an application if you have a spelling mistake?
I wrote Students Council rather than Student Council (no 's') on my Queen's supplementary and I realized as I was using part of my answer for another supplementary.
My Ecs are really great and I have a 90 avg, but I'm just wondering if that one mistake will be the deciding factor in my acceptance.

LOL yeah I have something similar except I have TWO mistakes. For one sentence I forgot to include 's in the "it" and 'the' was missing in of my sentences. There goes my acceptance.

It isn't looked highly upon. I mean, a spelling error basically indicates that you weren't interested enough in reading through your application. While I see Students instead of Student as a minor, minor issue that probably wouldn't even be noticed or cared about, the complete omission of a word is rather ridiculous.

What are the chances that "hard they" instead of "had their" be overlooked? XD

I doubt that will be a high factor. I made a mistake on my Ivey app and emailed the Recruitment Office. I said my other languages were Korean and English when in reality, I only had to put down English.

I doubt that'll be a problem. I found out I mistyped a word on my Ivey application even after checking it over quite a few times. When there are like 11 application pages to look through, they won't be too picky about one or two minor spelling errors. Of course, like andrewk512 said, it isn't looked highly upon, but they aren't going to heavily penalize you for it.
