Yet I get searches on my website that ask whether plagiarizing an essay is wrong. OF COURSE IT IS WRONG. Don’t do it.
Need more justification? There is plagiarism detection software available that some colleges have used in the past. Now one of the biggest companies helping colleges with their admission technology is offering this software to colleges. If used, the students essays are automatically run through the gdpr compliant software to see if there are indications of plagiarism.
Several graduate schools have been using this software and have found large numbers of essays that are not original. These have resulted in students applications being discarded by the universities and acceptances revoked when the discovery is made later.
Don’t let someone else write your essay or buy an essay from an online site. Don’t know what to write about? Need some help?
Your first step should be to look at a book that talks about how to write the college essay without actually giving you the essays. I recommend Harry Bauld’s book “On Writing the College Application Essay” or the ebook by Jan Rideout, “The Basics for Writing College Application Essays“.
