The consultant will review the document for formatting, not content. Formatting includes page sequence, table/figure placement, bibliography, table of contents, abstract, font, margins, etc. Doing this early can help you avoid delays in the approval process, and it is highly recommended. The deadline for submitting your draft is October 6, and if you would like to have your draft reviewed, contact the Thesis/Dissertation Consultant at email@example.com.
