Who do you ask to look over the dozens of secondary essays we have to write?

I've had a bunch of people look over my primary essay when I submitted it in June. However, I can't ask them to look over my many secondary essays, as they would be overwhelmed and, more than likely, bored to tears! :oops: What is everybody else doing? The writing center at my school is closed over the summer.

i usually dont really send the to anyone. after my PS experience, ive become good in learning to write. Most secondary questions are usually thigns like why do you want to go to our school, etc, etc. so I dont really bother much with how it sounds, as much as what i say. Ill be glad to look over other peoples secondaries though

Hmm, I am planning on having my parents look at them. The only problem is that they seem to think that everything I write is good, so I think I'd need someone a little more critical.

I'm letting my parents look over mine. They can't read English, so I'm hoping they'll tell me it's great and boost my self esteem.

I don't have anyone proof them. It's probably a good idea to have someone to do so, but I ran out of proofing chits with my primary.

Offer to take your friends out and buy the first round of drinks if they'll read the essays for one school each... Nothing like a good bribe... ;)

By the way, I'll work for drinks...
