If anyone would like to swap, please PM me. I have a rough first draft to work with but I am willing to look at yours, whatever stage it is in. Thanks!

I have a Yale 250 that I'd like some more eyes to pour over.

I'll check out your PS/DS if you'd like.

PM me if interested.

I would love to swap statements, if anyone's interested. Full disclosure: although I have several years' professional editing experience, I have no clue what adcomms want to see in a PS. So there's that.

Anyway, PM me if you wouldn't mind looking at my crappy (short) PS in exchange for my eyes on yours. Thanks.

I'm also looking for a PS swap. I have a rough draft that needs to be evaluated for content and understanding more than other things at this point.

Also have a DS to swap if anyone is interested.

also looking for a swap, please PM me.

long weekend = admissions essay weekend! hooray...

warnings on my essay: may contain violence, references to potential sexual content, and very public interest-y.

also, i just finished a working first draft, so i'm looking for your feedback on overall impact/message rather than grammar, specifics, etc. i'd be happy to review your essay for whatever purpose, with the authority of a B.A. in English to back me up (meaning, i have no idea how to transmit ideas without arcane rambling references, etc...).

I'll swap with someone if you're intelligent and also an asshole.

I need some good, harsh criticism for my PS. I'll return the favor.

PM me if interested.

(this feels like a weird craigslist ad)
