    Thank you for letting me know. The file you attached is slightly different than the one attached to the job posting. Is the 18N the correct and updated one?

    Please try to change your browser, I talked with UH and they said Edge or Firefox but Chrome is glitching. I just used Firefox and it worked. Also maybe clear browsing history and then try.
