If I can use college student writing to infer the level that the average person who gets out of high school english classes writes with, that's not really saying much.

A thesaurus might get you through a class that doesn't expect much, or gives you points for trying to be wordy, but they will not necessarily make you write well. Not unless you already know what you're doing.
