Essay Choice B

Since Amherst lets you submit a graded paper from your junior or senior year, I was wondering if I could submit a DBQ from AP US History. We had to create our own DBQ's to create a research paper and since I got a 99 on it, I wanted to submit it. However, is it okay to submit a DBQ, since they refer to outside sources? Or should I replace all of the citations like (Doc A) with actual citations?

    Does your DBQ fit these criteria?
    Option B:
    Please submit a graded paper from your junior or senior year that best represents your writing skills and analytical abilities. We are particularly interested in your ability to construct a tightly reasoned, persuasive argument that calls upon literary, sociological or historical evidence. You should NOT submit a laboratory report, journal entry, creative writing sample or in-class essay.
