    Using parenthesis (brackets) in university essays

    I think I almost never used the parenthesis (brackets) in college essays. I tend to go with the relative clauses or appositives instead.

    I may have been told that way by a high school teacher one time or another back in the days. I don't quite remember clearly.

    Using brackets/parenthesis often totally acceptable in college essays/writings?

    I tend to use brackets a lot in my university assignments (in fact I probably overuse them), but I've never been marked down for it.
