Hello

I see a lot of good "templates" out there, but I am concerned about plagiarizing. If I use a template, is it possible to be disqualified for plagiarism?

thank you

Good that you're concerned, but there is nothing to worry about here! Templates are a standard tool for all walks of like, including essay writing; as long as you are expressing your own thoughts in your own words, you can use a template and don't even need to give credit for it (though if you do use Kaplan templates, we'd love a shout-out!)

Good luck studying!
