Indeed! Starting back in middle school, I edited my mom's papers for her college classes. Since then, I have edited webzine articles, school papers for friends and family, and articles for different newspapers/journals. I stand by this - NO writer is perfect. I am not perfect, either. I do make common spelling mistakes all the time, and nobody's grammar can be absolutely amazing. But just having someone do a quick lookover of your paper can do wonders.

Sorry kids. I only edit. No amount of money is going to get me to write your paper... but I'll go over a few drafts with you if I have to. Cheaters never win, winners never cheat.

Re: Hey High School Seniors! Need Scholarship Help?

like everyone else, im going to have to echo the fact that i may take up your offer of editing an essay or two (hopefully only one ). I'm looking to get into an ivy league school with a killer essay or two, relying on extracurriculars rather than marks/sats.. cause we all know what robotics does to our second term grades -__-"..hehe.

Re: Hey High School Seniors! Need Scholarship Help?

I think you're going to regret making this offer, Amanda...who knows how many papers you'll end up correcting?

Unfortunately for you, I'm a senior as well...and I might take you up off on the offer, depending on how desperate for help I am. I think I'll use you as a last resort, since your time is much more valuable than mine...

Re: Hey High School Seniors! Need Scholarship Help?

Honestly, I haven't been swamped yet... only had a few to take me up on this offer. I'm a little disappointed.

Bring 'em on, kiddies. You underestimate the power of Amanda Morrison.

I should have stumbled upon this sooner. Stupid hurricanes, clubs, and work. Can't hurt for a third person to go over my essays.

Well, I've got a couple of scholarship essays due by the end of October, so I'll probably take you up on your offer as soon as a slam some rough drafts out.
