Personal Statement PS submission dilemma

I submitted my application on Sep 15 but had a few errors in my PS (It was missing an important line in my experience which somehow I dropped in copying from notepad). So I uploaded a new one, unchecked the old PS and assigned the new one to programs I had already applied to. But now on ADTS, it seems programs are downloading both my PS. Do you guys reckon I email programs, asking them to pick the edited one? Mini-panic mode. Will appreciate feedback!

If they have printed the old one, they will see both, and in that case, it's up to them which one they will read. If they haven't they will only see the new one. Source, from a PD in the other forums. He also said that this situation is not uncommon and we should not worry too much

Sounds fair enough. But then, is retrieving the same as printing? When I uploaded the new one, programs hadn't retrieved my documents. Optimism tells me that they had not printed it at that point. But ADTS is showing that both personal statements are now being retrieved. They retrieve the new one usually a few hours after the rest of my application. Worth emailing program co-ordinators?

No, retrieving is not the same as printing I believe. They will print after they download and apply the filters. Worth emailing PC? Not sure, for peace of mind probably
