Can one of the experts review my application essay?

My name is Emma and I am a senior in high school hoping for help with my college application essays. I go to a very small private school in a small town and no one at my school really knows what colleges are expecting from applicant essays. We also don't have a guidance counselor or advisor who could help. A few teachers have read my essays and said that they were good but they don't really know what kind of essays are good for applications. My applications are due soon and I was hoping that an expert with knowledge about the application process and expectations could review my essay and give me any tips they have.

So on Idio’s question from earlier today my accepted answer was

So as much as I’d like that feature myself it isn’t available at this moment in time. If there’s a question about the structure of your essay or would this topic work sort of thing you can use karma to get an expert answer through QnA.

If there’s an issue with word choice you can also ask in the QnA.

Hope this helps and feel free to comment if you’s like clarification as I’d be more than happy to help!

PS: Just a friendly reminder you can’t post an essay in the QnA.

TLDR; expert essay reviews aren’t offered at this time but you can ask questions about essays here in the QnA
