Writing each application is the responsibility of the student. While we actively discourage teachers and parents from over-editing the essay, we do encourage the student to consult with parents, teachers and the college counselors regarding the topic, organization and effectiveness of the writing. It is imperative that the essay be the student’s own work. Suspicion on the part of the college admissions officers that there has been inappropriate help given to the student in the writing of the essay, or other preparation of the application, could seriously jeopardize the student’s chances for admission. Again, many professionals at Peddie are available to help; however, there should be enough time provided for appropriate editing.
