Unformatted text preview: If you have underlined important idea quotations while reading (and re-reading!) each essay, this should not be difficult.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
