Writing GRE Essays
I visited the writing center on Wednesday, going into it with the attitude of, I needed to come here to fulfill an obligation for my seminar class and nothing more. However, after meeting Ms. Brammer and talking to her, getting to know a little about her, my perspective changed. She was very friendly, and concerned with how she could be of assistance. I tentatively handed her my paper and asked if she would proofread it to see if I had any punctuation errors. After she finished reading, she carefully explained that I had two errors and what type of errors they were, without directly pointing them out. From this visit, I realized that asking for help isn’t a bad thing. In fact, it is good to have a second perspective. I also realized that it wasn’t nearly as uncomfortable of a process as I thought it would be.
