What if I have an interview for a postion but right after they set up the interview they posted a new job that I am more interested in the same department. Should I let them know I am more interested in the other position even though they haven't scheduled any interviews for the new position?

i wouldn't be so sure.

once i typo'd the job title in the subject line of an application e-mail.

i followed up apologizing and correcting the mistake. and i was eventually offered the job.

a mistake like that could certainly kill your chances, but it's not guaranteed that it will. if an employer is smart, they'd take into consideration the fact that taking accountability for mistakes and then fixing them is actually a very desirable characteristic in an employee. and by the way, keeping quiet and hoping that your mistakes won't be noticed is a terrible one.
