  • In my freshman year of university I found it really hard to transition from my high school grading system to doing university course work. If i were to go back to high school and tell myself that i’ll be ordering essays online i’d say i was talking bull, but no. provided me with a solace and a way to get used to the amount of work that my professors gave me.
