i agree,i think it would be bennificial to have people read our essays that we dont know. It may be hard for our friends to critque our essays because of a slight bias, from somewhere.

Our essays are a big part of our college application. The better we can all make ours the better. Maybe we could send them our essays and if they need some essays revised they can send us theirs as well.

I think the essays are a good idea to share. I think it might be useful to give pointers or ideas to share with them because they are probably going through a similar process preparing for college. Maybe give tips on certain colleges to look at or something.

Melissa you are so smart... haha... I think that is a good idea because they are going to read our essays how a person who wouldn't know us directly would read it... I think that having friends read it is good but sometimes they know how we write and how we are, so they would understand more about what we are talking about than someone from a college.

So I think that it is a pretty neat experience for us to communicate with these people from Alabama. It should be really cool. I definitely think it would be a good idea to give them the oppurtunity to look over our college essay because it is always nice to get a second opinion. Especially since they may know of some other things that they have found successful that we have not quite yet experienced.

i think them reading our college essays would provide a really good third party opinion on them. Whoever reads our essay to admit us into will go into it knowing absolutely nothing about us and the same would be true for all these people in alabama. and also, just to throw a new idea in there, we could find out what their curriculum is for the semester, the books that they're reading in class and stuff, and see if we have anything in common. Maybe we will have already read a book theyre doing and we could help them out with analyzing it and visa versa. Or maybe we would even be studying the same thing!

I agree with most of you. I think that the essays would be good because then we could get yet another person the edit it and it would be someone that has never even met us and they would have no bias.

I think that students should make a topic list of what we want to talk about, maybe keep them corresponding to current events. This will keep us updated on the debates around the world and get different oppinions across the country.
