Wako Posted November 29, 2013 Share Posted November 29, 2013 Hey all, I'm working on applications for this upcoming cycle and realized I don't have any good or really great single-author writing samples. I do have a few complete projects, but they're all co-authored. Would it be appropriate to edit out my co-author's written works and submit it as a writing sample? I would have a cover sheet explaining that I did such and that the project was collaborated on, but I would cut out everything that my co-author wrote. My co-author has okayed me doing this, but I'm wondering how that's looked upon by an admissions committee. Another one of the problems would be that the sample would then be missing some pretty important parts of the research project as a whole (for example, the literature review, setting, etc). Does that matter if it still matches the length required? Alternatively, I have a weak class paper that is pretty short (9 pages) and badly written. I considered submitting that instead, but I wouldn't feel confident in it at all. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
