I will do a professional work-up of any paper under 20 pages. This includes multiple "turns" where I return the paper to you (or the person of your choice) with extensive mark-ups and comments.

I won't edit it or rewrite it for you, but I will help improve the paper. I have extensive experience and training in this area.

N.B.: This is particularly "popular" for application essays, where my "record" is better than Tom Brady's in the Super Bowl, and includes acceptances to MIT (doctoral), Oxford (master's), one of the U. Cal.s, and technically the Sorbonne, I guess. And all the places my cousin applied to college. ;) Also, subjects range from engineering to social work--the process works. :)

What it's "worth" depends on how much time we end up spending, but it's worth a few hundred dollars at least--or, at least, that's what people have paid for it in the past.

Minimum Bid: $50

Well, since this got no traction anyway, I might as well set a dead line to see if that shakes things loose at all.

Closing this auction at noonish on Tuesday, Feb. 26.

Maybe I can get some testimonials that this is actually worth something. @SMU_Sox , @Zomp , anyone? Maybe @mascho or @IdiotKicker can vouch for some of what they saw when we did some of this stuff over at ItP? Bueller? :)

I don't know if I'm more impressed with your generosity or your magnanimous flair. I'm basically speechless and I know a ton of words.

We have a PayPal link for BAA:

I can't wait to receive what I anticipate to be a surprised text message. :)
Thank you. The donation is confirmed. Thanks for letting me participate. When I get going on my paper, I'll let you know and then I am going to expect to win a Pulitzer.
