Is the Peer Essay Review only for college application essays?
Answered

I'm just curious, would it be okay to submit other pieces of writing to be reviewed, or should we just stick to college application essays to keep it relevant to Collegevine? Things like scholarship essays, etc.

Since this is a college admissions website, I recommend sticking to college/scholarship essays. I am pretty sure other essays would frustrate a reviewer.

Yes, that is the intention.

I really don't know what happens if you slip in a different kind of essay. Maybe the reviewer will report you? I'm not sure.

It's totally fine to submit other pieces of writing that aren't application essays! If you select "manually enter prompt" it will then give you the option to say that it isn't for an application essay and enter what it actually is (homework, etc.). I would suggest keeping submissions short though, so you can get valuable feedback!

I hope this helps!
