That's an editing/rewriting sample. It doesn't tell me anything about how
the writer researched the content, interacted with the sources, got work
reviewed or verified accuracy against the finished product.

As long as the writer is prepared to discuss these aspects of the samples
and provide context for their age, I'd rather talk about the 15-year-old
