Can we place multiple short essays in one essay review?
Answered

I'm finishing my application for Harvard Summer School, and I wanted to get opinions on how cohesive my essays are and whether they tie into each other nicely or if some parts seem redundant. Would it be okay to place multiple different essays in one review so that the reviewer can see all of them and give advice on them as a whole rather than individually. I'm pretty confident with them as individuals already, but I'm just not sure whether they feel redundant or boring as a whole. What do you guys think? Thank you!

Note: Please don't downvote if the answer is no. Downvoting should be used for questions that disobey community guidelines (Rudeness, chancing, posting full essays, advertising, etc.). I'm asking this question to make sure that I follow community guidelines in my essay review submissions. Thanks!

Hey,

I haven't seen anything against putting multiple on one review, but I assume it should be fine as long as you don't put too many and they aren't too long. Really just think about whether or not a person can finish reviewing it and writing feedback within an hour.

Grace as someone who semi-frequently reviews essays I repeatedly came across multiple SRQ (Short Response Questions) and I had no objection to it just don't do multiple 250 word essays generally limit it to 100 words or less.

Try having it formatted like

Prompt#2: Insert Prompt

essay

Also downvoting questions isn't something you have to worry about. :-) Hope this helps!
