Okay guys, here's the deal. My college apps are due soon, including the essays. The only people I trust to critique my work are you guys, so I was hoping you could help me out. I really need someone to help me with essays (or at least give me tips on how to form them in a clear and organized fashion). Tips, advice, whatever. I really hope you help.

Because I need help.

Badly.

Thanks :3

When is the due date, and how soon do you need the crits? I have a busy next few days but I should have some time Thursday, Friday, and over the weekend to take a look at any essays. And I'd be happy to look at whatever if that works for your time frame.

Thank goodness. I'd like to get one application in by December 1st for a particular school I have in mind, but I only have one essay to submit for that school so it wouldn't be a lot of work. The other application is due December 15th. Thursday would be great, and Friday is good too. It's fine if you aren't able to, I just have a lot of faith in this community xD Like I said, right now I just need one critique on an essay.

I have the skeleton of the essay done, I just have a hard time seeing what I need to work on, besides organization/ideas and wording. My essay is about why I wanted (and want) to be a writer. As far as requirements, I'm submitting it under "topic of [my] choice" and there's a 250-500 word limit.

EDIT: two essays, but one is short because of a character limit.

Thank you soooo much.

I'd be willing to take a look. Disclaimer: I'm not an expert on essay-writing. But I can at least give you a general idea of what I think about it. Feel free to send it to me now, if you'd like. I'll try and have it back ASAP

Pro-tip: because my first instinct is to procrastinate anything I see as an obligation or responsibility, asking me for a critique is a good way to make sure I never give you a critique.

Thank you so much for helping. Like I said, I feel I have the skeleton down, just not the meat, and that's something I really struggle with when it comes to essays. I'll PM you shortly with one of the two essays. Thanks again.
