    Well this is the last paper I will ever have to write and I was hoping someone that is a better writer than I might be able to give me some tips etc....

    It need to be grammatically correct and reflect a level of college writing. It's basically an exit interview. If I don't get a passing grade I don't get to graduate this semester so if anyone would like to help me out I'd greatly appreciate it.

    I've attached the word doc. Thanks in advance

    My dad does the Funraisers at Wilcox Tech :p

    Overall I think it's a well written paper, though I am no enlgish or grammer buff.

    When do you need it by?
    I excel at correcting grammar and restructuring sentences to make the thoughts more coherent.

    Your typeface changes in several places as does the font size.

    Also, it reads like: "I did this, I did that, Then I did this, I think I wanted I have..." It makes it hard to stay interested. changing the wording to avoid repetition will go a long way to making it more readable. I started to reword sentences, but then realized most of the paper is I, I, I.
    If you want I can give a shot at going through it, but it might take me a while.

    If you have nothing else better to do that would be a great help.
