My one month in Essay Forum.
All strangers.... I guess, this was an experience that has not only helped me for colleges but also changed me as a person. People say, life has become busy and everyone is caught in a rat race. Look around? I think this forum defeats that notion.
I don't know anybody and nobody knows me. There may be somebody applying to same place yet, there is no sense of competition, at least inside the forum! We review essay with honesty and goodwill. Its great!
To be honest, I believe it was my good fortune... that I stumbled on to essay forum and became a part of it. After that, I did not need to go begging to people to review my essay. I was in critical stage with deadlines approaching and essays in a mess. Thanks to you all,I not only have got good... no great essays ready, I have learnt a new skill. Critiquing! I never knew I had it in me! I have thoroughly enjoyed myself when, I was reviewing an essay.
Mark, I believe is the most distinguished reviewer among us. Its quite different to write a critique and another to take the whole thing and make those minute grammar corrections. I am not so good in grammar correction but I judge the content. I try to give my best comments which turn out a little harsh at times. I do not know whether the critique are good or bad, I think different eyes giving different perspective to the writer that is important. I hope I am good and get better one day. Maybe even a contributor!
Kevin I think is the most diplomatic person on this forum. Never has he really slashed an essay howsoever atrocious it is. I wonder if anyone can break that score of staggering 9 and half thousand, ever!
I think thunder_two, linmark, ershad193 and many others are great and unique in their aspects.
I have been a member in Essay Forum for last 28 days and this is my 81st post. Beneath, all my Oct 1 deadlines and stress, nothing could waver the addiction I have for this site. One would say that after all the essay writing one would be bored with it. But for me, its been a great stress buster for me during tough times. I wish to thank this Forum once again and all its members for making it what it is. Enough said, let's get on with the game....
You are much too kind! I am here, just doing my best to help those who might benefit from such help. I understand what it's like to be in a position of need, and therefore, I extend my assistance to those who might be appreciative of what I can offer.
Thanks for the kudos, Sid!
Your welcome. I just basically wanted to convey my affection for this site which has taught what no one else has. Cheers... :)
I would like to add to all those who are applying as undergraduates and need to submit an essay.
You must take care of focusing the essay on you in such a way that you do not boast, yet say all that should be said.
Also, take care that you are not straying away from the topic. Just to impress, the admission committee, we do try to write deep soulful lines which are childish and useless. We must talk about the experiences and basically our own thoughts which seem so real and believable. So, be yourself and not vague. There are many trying to be different and end up being same. :)
And, please research each college thoroughly from their research projects to their principles to their
student organizations. Show that you are desperate to be a part of the college.
Write about your background but do not drag it. We must remember that we are not writing a journal on the traditions, but just a line linked to you... which reflects your character.
These are some points that I have been seeing missing in many essays, so I posted this up. Hope it helps....
Maybe even a contributor!
Yes, I hope you do get set up as a contributor. Your writing does not have to get any better; you are already ready. And thanks for the kind words about our site!
Never has he really slashed an essay howsoever atrocious it is.
hahahha, if you look hard enough you can find some harsh slashing I have done when I was in a foul state of mind!
Hey, I'm really glad to hear about your "addiction" to the site. I didn't realize what a significant role EF was playing for you. Stay involved!
Hi donrocks, i'm new on this forum. I hope my experience, is as good as yours! I was leery at first, but this thread is exactly what i needed. Thanks.!
Yes! I got in University of Colorado Boulder... :)
Couldn't believe it.... and many thanks to essay forum for the being the torch leading towards the exit of the tunnel.
Thanks a lot guys... YO!
torch leading towards the exit of the tunnel.
What tunnel? There is no tunnel, it's all wide open... fields to play in. And when you get to U. of Boulder, don't think of the stuff as work. It is just playstuff for your brain. Process the information, and enjoy the process. Reach your goals! Congratulations
