I just submitted a ton of essays to four schools, and I would like to capitalize on all the time I spent researching dos and don'ts.

I am a Peace Corps volunteer in Africa, and I have a project that needs funding. It is funded through the Peace Corps website, so everything is on the up and up. All donations go through Peace Corps, not me, and I will never see your credit card info. It is a project that has a business component and aims to fight malnutrition in kids. Now aren't your heart-strings pulled?

Here is the deal I am offering: you get another pair of eyes on your essay, and you make a donation to my project of whatever you feel my services were worth to you. And next tax season you show the receipt to the IRS and get a tax write off.

Let me know if you are interested and I will give you my email address so you can send me your essays.

Excellent idea!! I'd partake if I wasn't already complete with 10 schools! :lol: I've done work with hospitals in Nigeria and Kenya. Whereabouts are you?

Wow!!! 10 schools is a lot! Good job getting that many apps in on time! And perhaps even more, good job getting that many letters of rec in on time!

I have been serving in Benin for a year an a half. I will say, it made for some good essay content.

Benin looks like a lovely place. Folks in Africa are just fantastic and working with the hospital systems is great. Hope to get back there. But yes, lots of good essay fodder :P Good luck :)
