GinaPagnato Posted May 29, 2017 Share Posted May 29, 2017 Just thinking back to when I applied to college in the dark ages (before pc's, but thankfully we did have White-Out!), I didn't bother asking anyone to read my essays before mailing them in. I can't remember how many I wrote...maybe 2? They were probably so similar that I used the same ones with minor variations for all the schools I applied to. I'm wondering how often kids these days get help from their parents on their essays and personal statements. I'm thinking of proof-reading and editing help, both for content and clarity. I have some friends who don't even know what their kids wrote about, and other friends who admit to helping edit the essays, but they're not saying how much help they're giving. I don't know if it's because it's not a significant amount of help or because they don't want to say that they're practically writing it for their dc, lol. So what do you guys think or know about this? What have you heard? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
