Help With Sat Essay?

Here is the prompt (the important parts, anyway):
"In her novel _Sense and Sensibility_, Jane Austen wrote, 'It is not time or opportunity that is to determine intimacy. Seven years would be insufficient to make some people acquainted with each other, and seven days are more than enough for others.' ... the point that Miss Dashwood makes is valid. No amount of time spent in another person's company can guarantee that the two of you will become friends.
What are your thoughts on the idea that neither time nor opportunity can determine intimacy? What causes two people to become friends? Compose an essay in which you express your views on this topic. Your essay may support, refute, or qualify the views expressed in the excerpt..."
And here is the essay:
I don't agree with the idea that neither time nor opportunity can determine intimacy. By "intimacy" I think the author is referring to love. Time and opportunity are two big components in loving someone. You don't just meet someone someday and decide that you love them. Love takes time and you also need to have opportunities with that person in order to decide if you really love them or not.
I also agree with the idea that neither time nor opportunity can determine intimacy. You need to find connections with that person as well and that's what causes two people to become friends. You always need to have things in common with your friends because that's usually why you're friends with them. You also need to get along with that person and care for that person, so that's why I also agree with the idea that neither time nor opportunity can determine intimacy.

"Yes it does -- and good thing, too!"
If you used good grammar, you were halfway there. If the argument flowed logically, that was most of the rest. To ace it, it helps to use big words appropriately, and cite examples that illustrate your depth and breadth of knowledge.
If again you have doubts, the online writers help you to make a good essay.

Remember, the more mistakes you make during practice, the less likely you'll make the same mistakes during the real SAT.
Practice, practice, practice. You'll be thankful you did.
