All of a sudden 15-page-paper has 18 pages.

I am not sure what to do about this.

make your margins smaller, and mess with the inter-letter spacing of your words: format --> font --> character spacing tab. no i don't have experience with this at all......................................

In addition to the margins and font sizes (a trick that some professors in my past and federal courts in my present have caught on to, and outlawed by means of painfully detailed font and margin requirements), one of the best ways I've found for shortening things is to find a way to make every paragraph at least two lines shorter.

That said, three pages is a lot to cut.

Send it to me if it's not too late. I'll edit it.

Oops.

Anyway, what I meant to say was that thank you, but I wouldn't want you to do that because this paper is a horrible piece of tripe and the only reason I'm handing it in at all is because the margin of paper-writing ability between Spanish kids and me is insanely large, by which I mean that they do not know how to write a paper with a hypothesis. True.

Also, it's in Spanish.

Hey, it'd be even easier for me to edit if I don't have to understand it.
