Title says it all. I have my first draft done but it definitely requires some work. Any free or inexpensive services I should take advantage of when review/rewriting?

I graduated college a while ago and my writing seems a bit rusty. Also, its a lot tougher than i thought to put my whole life into a page in a cohesive and significant way.

Thanks in advance.

    Theres a ton of english majors/professors offering their services for a tleast 5 bucks. If you need a basic clean up of your writing this is a good one.

    If you are having trouble verbalizing your vision a couple other offer in-depth help with your writing for approximately 20-30 bones.

    Its good to only use this app when you are at the point where you know what points you want to emphasize and you have good stories to relate to the "why medicine" question.

    Seriously, as students sometimes we have a tendency to overuse certain words so mixing things up and adding a little spice helps out

    Thanks man. I am assuming it is perfectly safe...? I don't have to worry about someone ripping me off or stealing my work? Thanks.
