Student receives letter from ex, marks it like an essay and sends it back

A student who received a long letter from his ex has marked it like an essay and returned it (with comments).

Nick Lutz was clearly in full academic mode when he received a long letter from his ex, as he marked the hell out of it.

The letter received poor marks from Nick for missing supporting evidence for her argument that she never cheated on him, as well as poor spelling and grammar, and filler sentences that didn't need to be included.

All in all, he's a pretty tough marker.

The summary states:

Long intro, short conclusion, strong hypothesis but nothing to back it up. Details are important. If you want to be believed, back it up with proof. You claim that cheating never occurred, but place blame on yourself, then what for? Need to stop contradicting your own story and pick a side. While this gesture is appreciated, I would prefer details over statements. Revision for half credit will be accepted.
Good luck
Will Lutz

Will tweeted the letters, which have since gone viral:

According to Nick, she did not revise her letter after receiving these notes.

Since then, the letters have received moderation from other tough markers.

All in all, she isn't on track for a 2:1.
