My teacher recently uploaded some letter of recommendations for post graduate applications but the letter was a generic one she typed for me and in the last paragraph, she wrote "applicant wants to apply to a masters program in USA....." but she uploaded the same document to UK universities as well including University of Oxford, Manchester, Sheffield. Since this was a tiny mistake and she was using a generic letter for me to every university, will this be considered an issue to the university and can be rejected for admission?

    This is not what I would call a "wrong fact". – user151413 Jan 14 at 20:15
  • What would be problematic if in your application to Oxford, it would say "I apply to this master program in Princeton". – user151413 Jan 14 at 20:16

These kinds of mistakes happen all the time. Don't worry about it, just move on -- the people who will read the letters understand that these things happen.

    Though, of course, it might be a little bit embarrassing for the person who wrote the letter. – user151413 Jan 14 at 20:15

    I'll also add that i'm not sure how much weight people put on reference letters for master's degrees in the UK. – Ian Sudbery Jan 14 at 20:24
