I want to be the manager of a psychology company with a doctorate in the field. I may also start my own clinical practice.

Context: I started college at age 14 as a full-time student. I have a high-school diploma.
College: I'm currently in community college, but I'd like to transfer to a 4 year-school in Fall 2017. I am in the process of applying to UCLA, UC Berkeley, and a number of other UC schools. After my BA, I want to transfer to Stanford to continue my education.
Other Education: I am in community college. Then, I will transfer to a four year school, and lastly, I'll go to graduate school.
Activities: I founded a TAP Honors Club in my community college, and I'm the president. I do Forensics (debate) and write for the college newspaper.
Job Experience: I tutor disabled children and help underprivileged families. I make YouTube videos on educational topics. Also, I am an intern for a clinical psychologist. I wrote reports, listened to sessions, participated in hypnosis, and even created unique approaches for some patients.
Soft Skills: I am very detail-oriented. I have a creative side that I channeled into my love for public speaking. Debate thrills me endlessly, because it means standing in front of big crowds and not being nervous. I am working on publishing my young adult novel.
Hard Skills: I am fluent in Russian and English. I read and write in Hebrew. I am also taking a Spanish class.
Other: N/A #computer-science #computer-software

I want to be the manager of a psychology company with a doctorate in the field. I may also start my own clinical practice.

Context: I'm interested in psychology because I'd like to have a reliable income while loving the career that I chose. I started college at age 14 as a full-time student (I already have a high-school diploma).
College: I'm currently in community college, but I'd like to transfer to a 4 year-school in Fall 2017. I am in the process of applying to UCLA, UC Berkeley, and a number of other UC schools. After my BA, I want to transfer to Stanford to continue my education.
Other Education: I am in community college. Then, I will transfer to a four year school, and lastly, I'll go to graduate school.
Activities: I started a TAP Honors Club in my community college, and I'm the president. The club is still "under construction"! I'd love to hear your advice on getting more members, because I know that this leadership experience will help me later in life. I also participate in Debate Club and write for the college newspaper.
Job Experience: I just turned 16 a week ago, and find it difficult to apply to jobs in my area because I'm barely old enough. Even so, I I tutor a disabled girl and am doing a psychology internship.
Soft Skills: I am extremely detail-oriented and minimalistic. I have a creative side that I channeled into my love for public speaking. Debate thrills me endlessly, because it means standing in front of big crowds and not being nervous. I also make youtube videos, and am proficient in Final Cut Pro X. I am working on publishing a novel. To summarize, I love speaking, writing, and organizing.
Hard Skills: I am fluent in Russian and English. I read and write in Hebrew, but barely speak it. Recently, I have been teaching myself Spanish. I took a class on it to broaden my horizons. My goal is to speak 4 languages!
Other: This is personal, but definitely relevant to my degree! My siblings both have disabilities (autism and ADHD). I feel so blessed to have been able to help them, and it gave me additional experience with therapy. #computer-science #computer-software

What if I made a typo on my college application?

Should I call attention to the typo if it's minor, like leaving out the word "the" or forgetting a period? Should I just keep the error? #college #psychology #college-major #college-admissions #college-bound #clinical-psychology #college-applications...
