Help! Extra Big Space in Common App Essay

Question: Yesterday I submitted my Common app to about eight schools. I couldn’t fix my Common App and there was a HUGE space in between one of the sentences. It still makes sense

but looks like this. I am very concerned about it. Is it a big deal? I wish I hadn’t sent them but I didn’t realize until about the fifth one, and couldn’t fix it. And I have deadlines!!

Don’t lose a minute of sleep over this. There have been tons of essay-formatting problems with the new Common App. So admission folks anticipate snafus such as yours and won’t hold it against you … if they even notice at all.
