I've been a writing consultant for a few semesters now, and I love it. I'm glad to have found this community. ^_^
A question: How do you, as writing consultants, feel when students come in needing a signature for a class but don't want a consultation, and how have you learned to deal with this? We have a policy here that we don't give signatures without consultations. I think this is a good policy, but it often leads to an awkward conference in which the student isn't as responsive.
