Didn't find until the last minute that I needed to pay extra money for an extra page, which caused my stuff to be turned in late...

i requested peer reviewed nursing journals as part of my paper, however, I never received them after I requested them twice. If I had received these journals, I would have scored the quality of the paper an 10/10!!!
