Admissions Advice

Should I still submit my essay for review even if it is not even close to being done?

I only have 200 words, but I am really struggling and don't know if I should continue with my topic. Should I submit my essay for review just to get an opinion on the topic and how I am going about it?

I'd say go for it, but make sure your reviewer knows the circumstance of your essay... like tell them it is incomplete and ask if it is a good topic etc.

I agree with Adri, I would say to let them know it is incomplete and ask for suggestions on what to elaborate on. Give the reviewer some context as to how you would like to portray yourself in your writing so that you can flesh out all of your options.
