EssayEdge Extra: Soliciting Feedback

All writers rely on outside feedback. You may want to use friends, family, and teachers as resources before submitting your essay for more hands-on editing by EssayEdge. While the people you know can give you valuable suggestions based on their relationship with you, EssayEdge offers a vital perspective in providing objective criticism and expertise specific to the admissions essay.

The following is an evaluative questionnaire for you to give your readers along with the essay:

1.  Did my opening paragraph capture your attention?

2.  Did you find the statement as a whole to be interesting?

3.  Did you find it to be well written?

4.  Did it seem positive and upbeat?

5.  Did it sound like me?

6.  Do you regard it as an honest and forthright presentation of who I am?

7.  Did it seem to answer the question(s)?

8.  Can you think of anything relevant that I might have inadvertently omitted?

9.  Is there material within the statement that seems inappropriate?

10.  Did you gain any insight about me from reading this?

11.  Did you notice any typos or other errors?

12.  Do you think the statement has in any way distinguished me from other applicants?
