(3) Concise: If a particular section of your message seems to require extension description or explanation, see whether there's a way to convey this information visually.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.
