Hi GradCafe Forum, 

In finalizing my writing samples for my applications, I just wanted to throw a question out there. I was planning to use my senior thesis literature review but just wanted to see if anyone has any specific thoughts about using a lit review as my writing sample? 

 

Thank you!

Could you provide as your WS a summary of your senior thesis that includes a compact version of your literature review?

oh like write a new piece summarizing them both? I guess I could, however some of my apps are looking for a 25-30 page WS so the lit review hits the mark without putting the pressure of writing such a long WS from scratch. I suppose I could for the schools requiring a shorter WS
