Before, I was worried that my essay was something I would regret as the biggest weakness in my application. Now I feel like it's one of my greatest strengths.
I've always been uncertain of my writing, but I think with the changes my editor made, I'll have a better chance getting into my top choice. I was very confused about what admissions officers are looking for in the essay, so it was nice to have an editor who knew what to include and what to take out. He helped me emphasize the stronger parts of my essay and remove the cliched parts.
I wasn't sure if my essay really needed another edit, but when I saw the changes my editor made, I was so happy I had decided to try it out!
