I’m a third-year pupil at Ohio State. Before you reached the end if you read any of the humanities papers I’ve written this year, I guarantee that you’d fall asleep. Yet, I’ve handled A’s on them all.

Teachers anticipate certain content, formatting, and design through the essays we distribute. It makes it easier to allow them to grade and limits how many “surprise” submissions they receive.
