Hi all, if I were writing an email to someone requesting him to change something in his essay, should I write the subject line below using "for" or "of"?

Changes required for/of your essay

My gut feeling tells me to use "for", but I'd like to confirm.

Many thanks! :)

    Yes, I agree - "to" is better.
    Yes, but note: I changed the whole thing. I didn't like the "are required" thing, which forces us into a passive construction, I have chosen an active verb. In the original phrasing I agree with you, Barque, that "in" is probably the best option.
