Is submitting a college essay to an online editing service a bad idea?

QUESTION
Is submitting a college essay to an online editing service a bad idea?
I’m applying to transfer colleges and I wrote my essay. I found an online editing service that edits college essays. Is it a bad idea to use the service? Is it against the rules?

ANSWER
Hey
I have a friend who used a similar service and ended up having her essay stolen by them . . . they used the essay as their own and published it in some other site . . .so I would suggest not to go for that =]
but why dont you try asking someone from collegeconfidential to help you edit your essay? you can ask someone from the forums out there to help you ! =]

oh and btw which college are you in right now? I’m a high school senior and I missed the deadline of my favourite school [NYU] =[ so now I’m going to Penn State . . .I guess I’ll be transferring to Nyu next year … *sigh*
is the tranferring process too much of a headache ? =[
