    I wrote my essays for the academy yesterday to show my congressman. While I answer both questions very well my proofers feel like I possibly talk myself down too much. So should I edit those areas a little to show more that I am proving in my weaknesses so that it doesnt seem like I need my hand held or should I leave it how it is? Thanks in advance

    Make yourself sound good, but write the essay that most represents your attitude and tone of voice. Take your proofreaders' advice in consideration, if all of them believe you've downplayed yourself too much, just don't write an essay for them - write it like what YOU want it to sound like.
