Contact USCIS by mail, after applying for a change of status

Asked 11 months ago - Montville, NJ

I have applied for a F1 visa. All the documents have been mailed to USCIS. After a month later, i was reviewing my documents, i noticed, there was a mistake by the lawyer. I am quite scared, can i contact USCIS by mail and update on this issue, before they issue any rfe or denial.

Is this acceptable.?
