My application was prepared by a non-profit organization, and already its been sent. At my home place I didn't have access to a computer to check the USCIS instructions at the time, now I realize that it's not in fact (c)(14) but rather (c)(33). Is this an automatic application denial for me?
Hopefully not. Most likely will trigger an RFE (Request for further evidence/documentation by USCIS), where you could be given the chance to correct/rectify the mistake.

It probably won't be denied and USCIS may even correct the 765 to the correct (C 33) filing category as a courtesy.
It is uncommon that USCIS denies, when it can determine the correct category. However, at times, the incorrect category may be listed on the employment authorization card. Usually, this can be corrected if the program continues.
This is general information, not legal advice, and does not create an attorney client relationship.
