I have applied to a university in the US that has a ranking of 130-150. I have just found that in my Personal Statement / Statement of Purpose, I have made two mistakes using the definite article in my Statement of Purpose. Will these two mistakes in the Articles harm my chance of getting admission?

The SOP is 1200 words in length.

I have applied to the Physiology PhD program.

No one is going to reject an application that otherwise warrants admission because of two typos, even more so if it’s from a non-native speaker as in your case.
