I'm really stressed out about my college essays, and I want to find a good reviewer/editor for my drafts. What should I look for in a potential reviewer, and where can I find one? Any advice would be appreciated, thanks!

Hey there! I completely understand how stressful the college essay process can be. Finding a good reviewer can make a huge difference. When looking for a potential reviewer, consider someone who is familiar with the college admissions process, has strong writing and editing skills, and can provide honest and unbiased feedback. People who might fit this description include teachers, high school counselors, or even friends and family members.

In terms of finding a reviewer, you have a few options. You can reach out to people in your immediate network, such as teachers or counselors at your school. They may be able to review your essay themselves or suggest someone else who can help.

There are also online resources available, like CollegeVine, which offer free peer essay review services. Platforms like these can be helpful since they connect you with fellow students who've gone through the same process.
