Does CollegeVine protect essays submitted for review?
1 - if I submit an essay for review, could it get plagiarized?
2 - if a college runs my essay through a plagiarism checker, will it say I plagiarized it because I posted on Collegevine?
Earn karma by helping others:
Essay Review works on an honor system -- plagiarism is technically possible, but no more likely than on any other online community for feedback on your writing. Collegevine also can help users verify they’re the original author.
Colleges use internal plagiarism checkers to compare the essays of their applicant pool -- they don't have access to essays posted on CollegeVine.
To keep this community safe and supportive:
- Be kind and respectful!
- Keep posts relevant to college admissions and high school.
- Don’t ask “chance-me” questions. Use CollegeVine’s chancing instead!
