Paper Reviews: Suggested Appointment Planning

Suggested Appointment Planning

You can reserve a paper review appointment up to two weeks in advance and make up to two appointments per week! How might that fit in your schedule? Here are a few suggested options. Keep in mind that you will receive a reviewed document the day of or day after your appointment. So be sure to plan ahead and give yourself time to revise between appointments and before your assignment is due. Your appointment can be for the same document that you’ve revised, or different documents you are working on that week. For more about our appointments, review our Appointment Overview Page.

Suggested Appointment Plan

You can make two appointments a week, at least two days apart to give yourself time to revise and for the writing instructor to review your work. For this example, Day 6 and Day 7 are the weekend, when the center generally does not have appointment openings.

Suggested Appointment Plan 2

You could come the same day week to week and submit whatever you are working on at that time. Having the appointment reserved can help motivate you to finish your draft early and help boost confidence and provide steps to work on before the assignment is due.

Week 1
Day 1 Day 2 Day 3 Day 4 Day 5 Day 6 Day 7
Drafting Drafting Appointment Revise & draft Revise Revise Turn in & new draft
Week 2
Day 1 Day 2 Day 3 Day 4 Day 5 Day 6 Day 7
Drafting Drafting Appointment Revise & draft Revise Revise Turn in & new draft

 

There are many other combinations that might work for you, but if you want to make visiting the Writing Center for a paper review part of your writing process, we encourage you to consider a plan for yourself where you schedule ahead of time and provide space to revise between appointments and apply feedback between assignments.
