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".

  • What would be problematic if in your application to Oxford, it would say "I apply to this master program in Princeton".

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.

    I'll also add that i'm not sure how much weight people put on reference letters for master's degrees in the UK. Commented Jan 14, 2021 at 20:24
