  1. Hello everyone, Just some quick background. Long story short, I went to college for undergrad full time up until my first semester senior year. Due to personal reasons, I left to take a 2 year break. I went back in Fall 2017 to finish up my requirements and graduated in December. I am planing to apply to graduate school in the next 1-2 years. The school that I am definitely interested in requires a writing sample that is 15-20 pages long from undergraduate work. I have a sample that meets the length requirement. However, it was written about 3 years ago and my writing has evolved since then. I don't have any other recent samples (the final classes that I took were in French and Math). So, I would like to edit the paper that I do have. I was considering reaching out to students in the English department at my local hometown college for assistance in editing my writing sample to make it application ready. Since it is a lengthy paper, I figured that I would likely need to pay said editor for their help. I am not a current student, So I am not eligible to use my alma mater's writing center. Has anybody ever gone this route before? Does anyone have other suggestions for help with getting my paper edited? Does anyone know what a fair price might be for someone to edit a 20 page (about 6,000 words) paper for graduate school admissions? Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
  2. Greetings, all, I currently direct a small writing center, which I absolutely love, but am ready to move on to other opportunities. Job postings all seem to require a Ph.D., so I am ready to "close the loop," so to speak, and return to graduate school. So far, my list of schools that offer an emphasis in writing center / writing program administration and composition includes: UT Austin, Miami University, Ohio University, Ball State University, Purdue, U. of Louisville, U. of Wisconsin-Madison, and U. of Michigan. For technical and scientific writing, I'll also throw in the U. of Minnesota. Do you have any insights on the schools/programs I've listed here? I've heard that there are some concerns about how TAs are treated at Purdue, and their recent acquisition of Kaplan is certainly pretty interesting. Are there other schools/programs I ought to consider? Cheers, and thanks!
