You know what else our competition does?
They pretty much let anyone with a keyboard and half a brain write for them. You know what this means? While a few solid writers might be writing essays for them, most of their employees are students like you (who are in fact writing these papers so that they can buy some sweet grass) or hacks from developing countries whose command of the English language is often less potent than their command of recipes for Samosas and Tandoori Chicken! Yes, we went there. The truth is that a lot of the paper writing done in this business is outsourced to India. Thomas Friedman says that the "World is Flat" so there must be nothing wrong with this, right?
Some of our Indian brothers and sisters are very well qualified to write papers; some even probably went to good schools. There is, however, what we may in academic jargon, refer to as cultural competence. It's the ability to grasp what Rummy once called the "Unknown Unknowns" of paper-writing - those things that no one mentions but that we all unknowingly carry in our collective zeitgeist. Thus, aside from the fact that these outsourced writers might not have any knowledge whatsoever of the area they're writing in, they will often not get the subtle cultural differences associated with writing a paper at a College or University here.
