*We request that submissions be made no later than one week before they are due, in order to provide sufficient time for reviewing and returning the assignment to you. We encourage submissions to be made whenever the paper is ready to be reviewed, however, if it is due less than a week from when you submit it, we may not have sufficient time to get to it and therefore it will not be read/reviewed. We also reserve the right to limit our editing/proof-reading services of major papers to one per semester per student, though this limitation is often not necessary. Thank you for your understanding.
