How Demographic Changes Are Affecting The US College System

How Demographic Changes Are Affecting The US College System

Every young student in the US education system thinks they know one thing: if they work hard and try their hardest, they’ll get into a good university and secure their future. Nowadays though, is this really true? Demographics are changing all the time, and that has meant some huge changes for US colleges. What’s happening, and is this a challenge or an opportunity?

Declining Enrollment Numbers

There’s no denying that numbers of students enrolling in college are declining. There has been a steady decline over the last 10 years, with numbers falling from 20.6 million to 19 million students between the years of 2011 and 2016. That doesn’t seem like a large number now, but those figures are set to decline further for another decade. In another 10 years, what are enrolment numbers going to look like?

Changing Demographics

As the numbers are declining, the demographics of those applying to college also are changing. In recent years, there has been a large upswing in minority students, notably Hispanic students . As well as this, there are more and more students arriving to college who are the first in their family to attend, bringing new generations into university lifestyles that will only increase further year on year. Finally, male numbers are dwindling, but more female students are now attending college. The image of the ‘traditional’ student doesn’t exist anymore.

Colleges Struggling To Keep Up

Although these changes have been happening over time, colleges are only now seeming to take notice and try and keep up. Colleges are just now seeing that the average student they’re getting now look nothing like the average student from ten years ago. That means that they need to catch up with what the students need, and how they can help them settle in. To do this properly, they need to do their research and be prepared to make changes to help those students.

Of course, this doesn’t always work. Minority students still feel as though they often don’t fit in, and find that university doesn’t fit them properly. This is often no fault of their own, but really it’s an issue with the college not changing with the times.

This survey has found that minority students are less satisfied overall with their university experience. The biggest issue appears to be perceptions of teaching quality. Within the survey mentioned above, as much as 45% of black students, 44% of Asian students and 35% of white students were dissatisfied with the level of teacher that they had experienced throughout their academic year. Those from Chinese backgrounds also felt they weren’t receiving high quality teaching, as only 17% stated they were ‘satisfied’ with the teaching experience they had witnessed in their US school or university.

These surveys should show colleges where changes need to be made. Now that more students are coming in from abroad, for example, teaching should take this into account. Whether that’s by improving standards or managing expectations will be up to them. However, all in all, it’s suggested that the number of foreign students is declining year or year. There are many reasons to this (see below) primarily because students are choosing to stay and leave with parents or choosing other university options around the world.

Why Are Colleges Struggling?

There’s been much more diversity in the student body for a long time, so why are colleges still scrabbling to catch up now? That’s because the demographic hasn’t changed at the top of the chain. The dean of a university is more likely to be a white, 60 year old man than anyone else. When this is the case, all decisions made in the running of the university will be influenced by this.

However, this isn’t as black or white as it may first seem. At the end of the day, it’s worth remembering that it doesn’t matter what age, gender or race an individual may be when they become the dean of a university, what matters is the way the dean implements the rules and guidelines on campus and how they are fair to everyone.

Why Are Numbers Declining?

There’s the other issue to be addressed too, the issue of declining enrolment numbers. There are multiple reasons why in the US, many students will be choosing not to go to college, at least not directly after high school.

The biggest reason is that of cost. Attending college is a huge cost, somewhere in the region of $33,480 for a private college 4-year course. That’s a huge amount of money, and if parents aren’t in a position to help with finances, then it just isn’t feasible for many students. Instead, they may find work instead and choose to gain experience that way.

As well as this, there are those of the opinion that the cost of tuition doesn’t give the student a good enough return on investment. It is true that there are several pathways into the workplace, and nowadays university is often seen as not practical, as it’s costly and doesn’t teach enough hands-on experience. Because of this, potential students are now choosing to go elsewhere.

Proof of this comes from the UK. The UK work market is in crisis, especially since the country has an aging population and now more and more young people are heading into university, or were when the article was published several years ago back in 2013. However, the article shares some very interesting information which states that only five of the top 30 fast-growing careers in the UK and the US require an undergraduate degree and that you don’t need to attend university to secure one of these roles.

This is why it’s important to realize that more and more students are dropping the traditional path of attending university and are making more movements towards starting at the bottom of a career ladder, getting the relevant training and then making their way up.

Finally, there’s the fact that university just isn’t for everybody. It’s true that in the past, university was seen as the one way forward once you left high school. However, it wasn’t the right path for everybody. Many a student has enrolled, started courses, and then dropped out as they found it wasn’t what they were looking for. This can cost them months in their search to find a more appropriate route forward. Take a look at this ton ten list of fastest growing jobs in the US. As you can see, many of these roles are trade technician jobs or medical personnel with only a couple of exceptions when it comes to university-required roles.

Who’s Affected By These Changes?

Of course, these changes mean that some colleges will be affected more than others. The most prestigious universities will see very little changes to their enrolment numbers and demographics, as they will usually be bringing in students from a much smaller pool. Colleges that are smaller, though, may be feeling the pinch.

This is because for many smaller universities, they stay afloat on their enrolment numbers. If their numbers are going down, that means that they may not be able to hit their targets. We’ve already seen the impact this has had on some universities, with them having to make cutbacks.

This is even more so the case now that Trump has come into power and the Republicans are starting to make budget cuts, many of which are targeting state and public universities across the country.

What’s The Good News?

This does sound rather worrying for universities, but like most things, there are some morsels of good news to be found.

Firstly, enrolment in universities may be down, but graduation from high school is up. This is due, in part, from programs from the Bush and Obama administrations supporting schools in educating children.

Of course, there’s also the fact that minority students are now finding it easier to access higher education. This is creating opportunities for more students than there have ever been before. This will only be a good thing, if their numbers continue to grow over the next few years.

The Result Of These Changes

So, with all the changes that are happening in college education right now, are colleges themselves under threat? Does a college education not hold the same value as it used to?

It’s not necessarily a bad thing that numbers are currently declining. As discussed above, this means that more minority groups can access education, creating more opportunities for them. As well as this, students are now seeking out other roles for themselves, ones that may fit them better as a person. After all, not everyone is a born student.

Only time will tell if colleges will stick around in the next ten years. As they are though, they will have to make some major changes. These changes need to include open debates in and around the universities about the condition that each individual establishment is in. Also, attention needs to be paid to the actual level of education that’s being provided and quality of the teaching that is experienced. The colleges that do so will flourish, and bring in more students as time goes on. If they don’t, then they may find they start to struggle. The demographics and numbers may be changing, but that means that colleges may be able to evolve with their students’ needs.

5 Tips for Starting a Business While in College

You’re in the middle of writing a 10-page essay on feminism in the digital age when it happens. An amazing idea hits you as you sit in your dorm and you know. Following in the footsteps of Gates and Zuckerberg, you’re ready to start your own business.

But where do you begin?

Here are 5 fantastic tips to help you launch your business and maintain your GPA.

Know What You’re Getting Into

Launching a business takes time, effort, time, money, time, plus more time. Client calls have to be scheduled around Econ 201, orders fulfilled the same week your essay for Russian Lit due, and work doesn’t stop for finals week. Many of us already need more hours in a day and as a college student (especially if you’re full-time) your time is at a premium. How does this fit into your life? How much funding will you need for a launch? What products or services are you offering? Do you need to a license? Does your business need to be registered with the state? You can answer all these questions by writing a business plan. This document helps you turn your idea into actionable steps. It also comes in handy when you’re securing funding, but more on that later.

Value Your Time, Build a Website

We already know your time is precious and one great place to conserve time is in building your website. Do you need a website for your business? Yes, you absolutely do. 81% of customers look online before buying products or services and you don’t want to miss out on those potential leads. It’s simple to get started but the design will take the most time. If you know CSS and HTML, this part is no problem. But don’t worry, there are options for those who can’t cascade style sheets. Web builders like Weebly, WordPress, Wix, and SquareSpace all offer templates you can customize without any coding.

Can’t build your own website? Find someone else to do it for you. The internet is full of designers ready to build your site at every budget level and you can approach them directly. If that option is outside of your budget, websites like Fiverr, PeoplePerHour, and Upwork have a database of freelancers offering a their services for a range of pricing.

Looking for a free option? Find someone willing to do a skill swap. Offer a designer your product or one of your services for free in exchange for designing your website. Not only will you get a new website, you’ve also made a connection and found a future evangelist for your business.

The point is, value your time. You don’t want to spend hours, days, or months coding your own website. And you definitely don’t want to spend that much time learning how to do it yourself before you even get started building one. While it would be a nice skill to have, unless you’re already studying this in school, you should stick to what is going to get you the result you need as quickly as possible.

Find Your Free Resources

As a student entrepreneur, take advantage of all of the free resources at your fingertips. Set up an official business email address using your own domain. There are free options available which means you have more money to spend on other essential items for your business.

Check in with your school’s business center or entrepreneurship support services. Some colleges offer access to space, development resources, pitch days and training, and mentorship opportunities.

Are there any classes that could directly support your business? Think outside of the norm and focus specifically on skills for your business. Maybe textile classes, computer science, or design are just what you need to launch yourself. What does your library or college offer to support small businesses?

Finally, the Small Business Association website is full of advice, resources, and the latest federal business regulations.

Get Out and Mingle

Starting a business can feel like a solitary venture but don’t let yourself stay holed up in your dorm room hacking away at a business plan. Some of the best business breakthroughs are born from conversations with other people. So go forth and network.

Find events at your school for entrepreneurs. Are any organizations based around starting businesses? Join or just attend their events. Organize your own event by partnering with an established organization. Find out what’s happening in your community. Are there any local or national organizations having events nearby? Is there an upcoming conference you can attend in person or online? Look to social media. Join Facebook entrepreneurship groups. Follow like-minded people on Twitter and Instagram. Find companies you admire and follow them on LinkedIn. Look for a small business or entrepreneur Meetup to attend. The internet is full of people ready to share advice and even pool resources.

Find a Mentor

One important part of starting a new business is finding a mentor, someone you can look to for advice or call on in a pinch. This should be someone you trust and admire and with whom you can have candid conversations. These folks are all around you in college, all you need to do is reach out to them. Talk to teachers, guest speakers, and alumni. If you’re in a fraternity or sorority, reach out to your fellow members. Connect with people on Twitter, LinkedIn, or new apps like Shapr. Be professional, be confident, be yourself, and make the ask. You never know who will say yes.

The Bottom Line

Starting a business always takes effort, moreso when you have to go to classes every day. With the right preparation and support, a successful launch and acing your finals are absolutely possible. Set your goals, know your needs, and find your resources. You’ve got this. Good luck.

Is Modern Culture Ruining Childhood

Anyone with children, or who is regularly in contact with children, will know that childhood is radically different to the one they remember. The prevalence of technology and especially social media has changed what it means to be a child almost beyond recognition. With such dramatic changes, is it possible that modern culture is ruining what childhood is?

The biggest problem reported by carers of children is that they engage less in imaginative play. Modern technology means that their attention is being demanded by more and more things, so they don’t have the time or inclination to play. If they have more and more video games or ways to access TV, why would they have to make up their own games?

There’s also the issue of what children can access online. Before the advent of the internet, carers could control what information a child had access to. Now, though, a child can find almost anything online. This can be a real danger if they come across material that’s too mature or graphic for them.

The largest problem children face in modern culture is that of ‘helicopter parenting’. The trend of taking control of every aspect of a child’s life comes from a place of love, as parents of course want their children to be safe and happy. However, as children aren’t able to go out and have their own experiences, they’re staying inside and instead experiencing the world through a screen.

However, it isn’t all doom and gloom. Children may have access to things their parents could never have dreamed of, thanks to the internet. The learning opportunities are almost endless, and they can connect with other children and educational experts from all around the globe.

If parents are concerned with what their children are seeing online, it is possible for them to control what gets to them. Parental controls are easily set up on most internet enabled devices, and encouraging your child to be open and honest with what they’re seeing online can go a long way.

Play is different nowadays, but it doesn’t mean it’s gone. Just like adults did when they were children, children still enjoy playing as their favourite characters in the school yard. There’s still plenty of imagination for them to tap into. The difference is that modern children have a wider pool of experiences to draw from when they play their own games.

So, is modern culture ruining childhood? Not necessarily. It’s true that there are a lot more dangers out there for modern children, but there’s a lot more opportunity, too. If a child is equipped with the right tools for negotiating the dangers of modern life, then they can have a happy, fulfilling childhood.

How Necessary is a College Education?

Today, more and more students are feeling the pressure to do well in school so they can continue their education in college. They’re constantly told that their future is dependent on doing well, as with a college degree they can get a good job and do well in later life. However, is this true for today’s students? This essay looks to find out whether they’d be better off going straight into work instead.

No one can deny that going to college is a valuable experience. Putting academic studies aside, it teaches students a huge amount about living alone for the first time, in a safe setting. For example, a student needs to learn how to stay within a budget, live with people other than their family, and manage their time effectively. There’s no better time to learn this than while in college, while mistakes can be made safely.

There’s also no argument that some careers need people to attend college first. Doctors and teachers, for example, need to attend college to gain the knowledge they’ll need to carry out their every day roles. College also offers the chance to go out and practice working in those roles. That means students have relevant experience to put on their resumes when they come to apply for jobs.

However, it’s not hard to see why some prospective students are turning away from the college experience. The biggest and most worrying problem is that of cost. College is prohibitively expensive for a lot of otherwise promising students. The cost of the education itself is steep enough, but there are other costs too. The costs of accommodation, food and other necessities for living mean that it just isn’t possible to attend college. Some students can take on jobs as they study to pay their way through, but it’s not possible for everyone.

It’s also becoming the case that college degrees are becoming less valuable out in the real world. Thanks to years of schools encouraging students to go on to college, there’s a glut of working people now who all have degrees. A hirer that’s looking through applications won’t be able to pick out a candidate based on their degree alone anymore. It’s more likely that they’re looking for life experiences, or concrete examples that the applicant has the skills they’re looking for.

It seems that college is still a valuable experience for anyone who attends, but for different reasons in today’s age. The experience of living away from home is crucial for many students. However, it may be more beneficial to go out into the working world rather than getting a degree, as they may be able to progress faster in their chosen field.

Services – 4/10

At first glance, the list of services that are on offer seems rather limited. In fact, in the Services drop-down menu, there are only four listed, followed by a selection of basic and broad subjects. This is quite disappointing for anybody looking for a more complex style of assignment.

However, if you’re looking for a basic essay, homework completion or term papers, this service should be able to provide.

a one assignments review

Pricing – 5/10

The easiest way to work out a quote for your written assignment is using the pricing calculator on the homepage. This is an easy to use calculator which seems really accurate. The service uses a basic price-per-page method but doesn’t seem to include any extra services, just your paper.

To give you an idea on what AOneAssignments.com’s pricing is like, a ten-page essay that’s single-spaced with a 5-day deadline and then written to a premium quality is going to set you back around $379.80. This is a huge amount of money, and not suitable for a student on a tight budget.

Content Quality – 4/10

Whereas we spoke about ordering a premium quality essay, there’s no indication on what the difference is between the standard and premium quality, but we assume the best results come from the premium quality. Unfortunately, there’s no obvious thing you can look at to tell the difference.

There are no reviews on the website, or very many online which may me believe that the website is rarely used. There’re also no samples available, making it impossible for you to judge the quality of the content yourself.

Customer Service – 4/10

Whether you’re trying to make an edit to your order, ask a question, or you’re looking to request a refund, you’re going to need to get in touch with AOneAssignments customer service team. However, this seems to be easier said than done.

While there is a 24/7 live chat available, this seems to be the only form of communication they have. There’s no contact page, no social media links, no phone numbers, no email address, no Skype contact, or a physical address.
There’s no way of knowing how long the people are going to take to reply, how quickly they’ll deal with your problem, or what happens when they get really busy. None of this is ideal if you’re looking for quick and immediate assistance.

AOneAssignments.com Review

Mary Walton‘s conclusion on AOneAssignments.com:

All in all, A One Assignments leaves a fair bit to be desired. While the pricing is slightly high, the content variable, the lack of customer service options, perhaps the most important element to consider, is appalling and is in need of some vital investment.

Services – 4/10

Judging by the homepage, there are a really limited number of services available; around 12 in total. This selection ranges from standard essays and PowerPoint presentations to resumes and research papers, but this is all that seems to be on offer.

When you consider the fact that the leading custom essay writing services can offer in excess of 50+ services, this range can feel rather restrictive, especially if you’re forced to take your business elsewhere.

Pricing – 4/10

Of course, the next most important aspect you’ll want to consider is the price that the service is going to cost you. You can work this out based on the information given to you in the pricing list which can be found on the pricing page.

To give you an idea on what pricing is like, a Premium Quality 5-page essay (single-spaced) with a 5-day deadline will set you back $189.90. This is super expensive, more than the majority of other custom essay writing services, and it may be far too much for a student on a budget.

Content Quality – 4/10

If you’re paying for such an expensive service, the chances are that you’re going to expect an extremely high-quality when it comes to content, but this might not be the case with BuyAssignment.com.

You can easily judge the quality of the content yourself since there’s a list of articles you can read under the article page. However, this content is basic at best, and there are plenty of grammatical mistakes and poor sentence structure that’s typical with non-English writers.

While the information is decent and well-researched, it’s let down by this lack of attention to detail.

buyassignment.com help with assignment writing

Customer Service – 5/10

Whether you’re making an edit to your order, simply want to ask a question or requesting a refund, you’re going to need to get in contact with the customer support team. However, there is only a limited number of methods to do this.

On the contact page, you’ll find a US-based phone number, a single department email address and an email form (which leads to the same address). There is also a live chat feature, but this seems only to be operating at certain hours of the week.

Unfortunately, the site doesn’t say how quickly they’re going to be able to help you, or how long it takes for them to reply; which is not ideal if you require urgent assistance as soon as possible.

BuyAssignment.com Review

Mary Walton‘s conclusion on BuyAssignment.com:

All in all, I’m left rather disappointed when it comes to BuyAssignment. With a limited number of services, high prices and a really restrictive range of customer service contact options, there are definitely better options out there.

The only way to really find out is to make your way through the order process, in which you’ll find a list of around 30+ services. Many of these services are basic essays and term paper-related, meaning there’s no real access to niche or complex assignment types.

Pricing – 5/10

Where there is no services page, there is also no pricing page, which makes it incredibly difficult to find how much your assignment is going to cost easily. As a student on a tight budget, this seems to be an important element of their service they’re missing.

The only way to find out is to make your way through the order form, yet again. To give you an idea on what prices are like; a University level essay that’s single-spaced and ten pages long with a 3-day deadline will set you back a staggering $190. This is far too much to be an affordable service.

Content Quality – 5/10

Surprisingly, there is a testimonials page on the website, but this doesn’t give you any information whatsoever on what the service is like. The reviews are basic at best and contain no form of rating system. There is also a complete lack of dates, which means the reviews could be years old and no longer relevant.

There is also a samples page where you can judge the content quality yourself. However, these examples are basic at best, written with standard information found online and simple sentence structures.

Customer Service – 5/10

Whether you’re requesting a refund, asking a question, or happen to want to make a change to your order, you’ll need to be able to get in touch with the company quickly. However, this might not be as easy as it sounds.

On the contact page, you’ll find a physical address, a US-based phone number and a basic email address that handles all queries. There’s no dedicated pre or post-sales support, no live chat, or social media links, which makes it impossible to gauge how effective the customer support team are.

ProWritingService.com Review

Mary Walton‘s conclusion on ProWritingService.com:

I was disappointed by the service that ProWritingService offers to their customers. Besides having a website that provides little to no information on what they do, the content quality is weak, and the customer service options are really poor. You should probably avoid this site where you can.

While this initially seems like a custom essay writing service, it turns out that this is just an editing service. Click the ‘Our Services’ tab, and you’ll simply be taken to a section of the homepage that describes how fast they can process your order.

This does, of course, mean that you will have needed to have completed your assignment already, for it then to be edited by the service. If you’re looking for a service that can complete your work for you from start to finish, this is not the service for to you.

Study Birdies review

Pricing – 5/10

It’s a shame that there’s no pricing page to be found anywhere on the website, making it a complex process to figure out how much you’re actually going to need to pay. The only way we could figure it out was by making our way through the order process; at least for the most accuracy.

However, even going through the order form doesn’t give you a price, and you’ll have to wait for a writer to get in touch with you and quote you. A four-page essay with a five-day deadline costs around $25 per page, which is simply far too much for a student on a budget.

Content Quality – 5/10

StudyBirdies has made it incredibly difficult to judge the quality of the content that the website produces. While there is a testimonial section to the homepage, none of these reviews contain any dates or a rating system. This means the testimonials could be years old and no longer represent the service accurately.

There’s also no samples page so you can judge the quality of the content yourself. Searching online, there are little to no reviews on the website, leading me to believe that this service isn’t used by anyone, or the reviews are completely negative.

Mary Walton‘s conclusion on StudyBirdies.com:

While Study Birdies at first glance seems like a really professional website, there’s so much room for improvement, and I’m left seriously doubting the quality of the service they provide. The content is expensive, the customer service options are poor, and there are simply better sites out there you can use.

To help see whether this is the service you’ve been looking for, today we’re going to explore the ins and outs of the service, detailing everything there is to know so you can make the best decision for you.

Services – 5/10

Unlike your traditional custom essay writing service, ThanksForTheHelp.com seems to switch between an assignment and study help services, and academic writing service, depending on which page of the website you’re on.

While this may be beneficial to a lot of students, it’s also quite misleading, and you can’t be sure what you’re going to get. Taking a look at the Study Help available, it seems there are around four core services in total, many of which focus on tech-related subjects, meaning it may not be ideal for any students studying outside of this area.

Pricing – 5/10

If you do happen to find the bill and find the service you’re looking for, you’ll next want to know how much it’s going to cost you. Like other writing services, it seems like this is worked out on a price-per-page basis.

However, to receive an accurate quote for how much ThanksForTheHelp is going to charge you, you’ll need to place an order, along with all your personal information, in order to receive a free quote. Not only does this mean they can charge you whatever they want, but they also have your personal details, and there’s no info stating that they won’t sell this to third-parties.

Content Quality – 4/10

It’s incredibly difficult to judge the quality of this service. There are no testimonials or reviews to be found anywhere on the website. There are also no samples pages, so you can read through a copy of the content yourself. There aren’t even many online reviews on trust websites.

This just screams out the fact that this website is barely used, if at all. Without the ability to judge the quality of the content, you don’t want to risk paying money for something you don’t know what it’s going to be like and whether it’s suitable.

Customer Service – 5/10

If you do decide to use the website and you want to make an edit to your order, ask a question or request a refund, you’re going to want to get in contact with the customer service staff. However, this might be easier said than done.

While there’s an automated live chat, this will simply refer you through to an email form. There’s also the direct email address and a US phone number, but that’s it. There’s no social media links, no pre and post-sales support, no Skype or international support for those outside the US.

ThanksForTheHelp.com Review

Mary Walton‘s conclusion on ThanksForTheHelp.com:

All in all, Thanks For The Help leaves a lot to be desired. With a mysterious quality of the content they’re producing, a complete mystery as to the pricing system and a lack of customer support options, using TFTH is a risk on your behalf.

PhDWorks.org Review – Is It Safe?

phdworks.org review

Writing a Ph.D., or any other kind of academic writing assignment, is hard work. When you add in everything else you need to do in your life, including other assignments, the stress can become overwhelming, and you end up looking for someone who can help.

PhDWorks.org is one of those helplines. PhD Works is a custom essay writing service that claims to be able to help with any of your academic writing needs. Today, we’re going to find out whether this is a safe and legit service, or whether it’s an illegal scam.

Services – 4/10

Taking a look to see whether the services you can order from PhDWorks fulfill your assignment needs, you’ll see a list of eight services featured on the left-hand side. These range from thesis writing to standard essay writing, but this is a rather limited selection, to say the least.

When you compare the fact that the leading custom essay writing services offer more than 50+ unique and customizable services, you’re not guaranteed to find what you’re looking for here.

phdworks review

Pricing – 5/10

Heading over to the Prices page on the PhDWorks.org site, you’ll find a nicely laid out table where you can work out the price per page of the service you want. It would be preferable to have a price calculator that works it out for you, but it does get the job done.

To give you a rough idea on what an essay from here will cost, an essay written to a College academic level with a three-day deadline will cost you around $27. This is well above the average, and it’s worth noting there are many affordable sites available.

Content Quality – 5/10

There aren’t really any testimonials to be found on the website stating how good the quality of the service is. There are a few in the sidebar, but these don’t come with a rating system or a date, meaning they could be years old and no longer represent the service that’s offered.

There is, however, a samples page where you can judge the quality of the content yourself. Taking a look through a few of these, the content is basic, to say the least. The content itself can be easily found with a quick Google search on the subject, and the language used is plain and simple. There are also several grammatical mistakes which are common among non-English speaking writers.

phdworks.org services

Customer Service – 4/10

It’s important to see what customer service options are on offer. This is so you can ask any pre or post-sales questions relating to your order, or if you want to request a refund, or simply want to make an edit to your order.

Unfortunately, the options are limited. The few options here, such as a phone number and address are US and Cyprus-based, and there’s only a single email address. There’s also no indication of how long you might be waiting for a reply, which is not great if you require urgent assistance.

PhDWorks.org Review

Mary Walton‘s conclusion on PhDWorks.org:

With a dated looking website, a poor selection of expensive services and restrictive customer support options, there’s a lot of room for improvement when it comes to PhDWorks. Why the service could be okay for non-urgent tasks, I personally wouldn’t rely on it for anything important.

More and more students today are looking for a way to help them manage and achieve their assignments. With workloads increasing, and social lives becoming more and more demanding, for some student, trying to a custom essay writing service might be the only option they have.

However, with such a broad range of essay writing services to choose from, it can be hard to decide which one is best suited for you. Today we’re going to explore the ins and outs of EduEssayHelper, giving you everything you need to make the right purchasing decision.

Services – 4/10

It’s easy to find out whether the service you’re looking for is covered by checking out the drop-down menu of the order form on the homepage. However, here you’ll only find three main services; writing, editing, and proofreading.
While other services will provide a detailed list of what they can offer EduEssayHelper.org doesn’t, which makes it incredibly difficult to judge whether the assignment type you want is supplied. On the pricing page, the services are broken down into Creative Writing and presentations, and that’s it.

Pricing – 4/10

You can also use the pricing page to work out how much your assignment could cost you if you choose to use the website. The price is worked out based on the academic level you require, the deadline, and then staged depending on how many pages you want.

To give you an idea on what prices are like, a Master’s creative writing piece with a three-day deadline is going to set you back an incredible $31. This is by far one of the most expensive custom writing essay services I’ve seen.

Content Quality – 5/10

You will be surprised to know that there are both reviews (only the homepage of the website) and a samples page so you can judge the quality of the website yourself. However, the reviews aren’t dated and don’t provide legitimate information on what the service is like.

However, even looking at the samples and you can immediately tell that the content is not that great. The sentence structure of the examples is poor, the grammar is, in places, non-existent, and just the content itself seems bland, unresearched, and as though it can be found through a quick online search.

Customer Service – 5/10

Whether you’re choosing to use the website and want to ask a question, or you’ve already placed an order, and you need help, or you’re going to request a refund for poor content, you’re going to need to get in touch with the company.

Heading over to the Contacts page, you’ll find some very basic options available. This includes a simple email form, a contact phone number, and a single email address. There is no dedicated pre and post-sales support. There is a live chat feature, although it only operates set hours during the week.

EduEssayHelper.org Review

Mary Walton‘s conclusion on EduEssayHelper.org:

To summarize, there are plenty of improvements that can be made to Edu Essay Helper. With the prices too high, the quality of the content too inconsistent, and poor customer service, I just don’t believe that this is a legitimate service.

GeeklyHub.com Review – Not a Serious Service

geeklyhub.com review

This is the website of the Geekly Hub service, which promises to help reduce the chaos of college life by allowing you to assign tasks, no matter how big, small, important or simple, to professional geeks. But how legit can a service like this be? Is it even legal? In this review we explore a number of pros and cons of placing an order here.

Services – 5/10

The services on offer here are mostly directed towards casual college work, with most tasks being simple ones such as answering questions, short essays, and other work that might count more towards your everyday performance than your final grade.

geekly hub review

Pricing – 3/10

When it comes to prices, Geekly Hub seems to be a fairly good deal. But then you realize that you need to prepay 30% when you sign up, and that you need to create a basic account with a minimal initial investment.

If you need a discount or promotion code, nothing seems to be available. They try and spin the 30% deposit as a plus, but really it’s only helping them, not their clients. It just feels like parting you and your money matters more than the service on offer.

Content Quality – 4/10

When it comes to getting to know your writers before you sign up or create an account, it’s basically not happening. You have the option of signing up with email or via Facebook, but one or the other is necessary before you can start talking to the writers.

And considering that anyone could apply to “become a Geek”, and that they advertise work in the same place they are trying to reach customers, this site has much more of a “gig platform” feel than a “professional bespoke writing” feel to it.

geeklyhub.com who are geeks

Customer Service – 3/10

Like with many websites, if you need to contact support it can be easier after you login / sign in and access your dashboard.

Although it is understandable that they do not want you finding out about your “geek” off their website, it also feels pretty shady you can’t get to know potential service providers before putting money down.

Getting a refund is a complex process. You need to get in touch with the company and you only have 60 days to put in that request, and, as usual, it is up to you to prove you were wronged.

GeeklyHub.com Review

Mary Walton‘s conclusion on GeeklyHub.com:

In conclusion, for simple tasks GeeklyHub may not be too bad. It isn’t illegal or a scam. But it is more of a way to free up time than a serious service to improve your grades. This is not a website you want to put a lot of faith in when you need to place a serious order.

EssayProfs.com Review – Check Out a Site

essayprofs.com review

Usually when I see the word “prof” anywhere, I try to avoid the site altogether because professors are annoying, tedious, and detailed… and always telling me to do something! Well fear not! EssayProfs is a website that offer writers to help you with writing. Here we provide you with a quick review of the site—but remember to vet them out for yourself by checking online reviews to make sure they’re legit.

Services – 5/10

Through navigating the website, you can see that they offer essay writing help, with tailored assistance and even have their writers available for you for contact if needed. There are also a lot of free features, including a reference page, plagiarism check, and unlimited revisions. The free plagiarism check can show that Essay Profs is doing business in a legal fashion, but you never know what illegal tricks scam artists have up their sleeve so be smart and verify before proceeding further.

Pricing – 3/10

With EssayProfs.com, there is a good and bad feature to their pricing model. The good news is that the site is pretty advanced, generating an estimate after you choose the likely deadline date. The downside: it seems like a great way for them to scam you with offering a higher price than is needed. If they listed prices, it would be way easier to determine the best payment option for your budget and see if it’s a good deal or not.

Content Quality – 6/10

Navigating the website is pretty user-friendly and offers to sign up seem straightforward. While checking out their FAQ section, I managed to find out that they offer discounts to returning customers, which is an incentive to keep using the site. With further digging, I found that it seems not so easy to get refunded if the work completed isn’t up to standards… something to keep in mind when determining if their services fit your needs. If you’re questioning their writing styles, EssayProfs does provide a sample page and insists their writers are of caliber quality.

Customer Service – 6/10

With 24/7 support, you can probably feel safe with your order. If you need more help, there is an FAQ section and an option to login/sign in and create an account, which can portray that they are an established business. The site does offer a number to contact in case of emergency, but again, be sure to check the site for past reviews before handing over your credit card info.

EssayProfs.com Review

Mary Walton‘s conclusion on EssayProfs.com:

While time is not always on your side when an important paper deadline is looming, it’s always a good rule of thumb to check out a site and verify their services before making the plunge and sending your credit card information. It’s also worth checking into seeing if they offer a promotion for new users or code as incentive for trying their service. It wasn’t listed on the website, but if you call they may be able to help you. Overall, it seems like Essay Profs is a pretty expensive website.

Services – 6/10

The services offered by this website focus pretty exclusively on college level work. This is good in the sense of it being specialized, but also may be frustrating if you are studying at a different sort of educational facility. The sign up process and account creation steps are pretty simple, and it is very clear what service you are buying, what steps you need to take, and what the result will be.

masters thesis writing review

Pricing – 3/10

If you are looking for a discount or promotion code, then this is not the site for you. The offer is full price only, and they charge at the upper end for every service they provide. Minimum $20 a page, for only around 300 words a page.

Getting a refund is supposedly easier than on other websites, but in reality their terms and conditions make it difficult to make a case for getting a full refund. Unless they failed to provide a service at all, it is up to you to prove they didn’t do a good enough job.

Content Quality – 4/10

The writers here are not actually available for you to talk to. You just don’t really know who is working on your thesis, which, when it’s such a big part of your degree. They say that you will be able to request a specific writer if you know them, but it’s really not clear who you will get the first time, or even if requesting the same writer will actually get you the same writer.

That said, they do offer a full plagiarism test, which can be reassuring.

mastersthesiswriting.com how it works

Customer Service – 5/10

If you need to contact support, their number is toll-free and at the top of their website. You are also allowed to make a free inquiry as to pricing and other matters, and they do have a number of contact options, even though these are a little buried on the website.

When you login / sign in you will find it easier to communicate through your buyer dashboard.

MastersThesisWriting.com Review

Mary Walton‘s conclusion on MastersThesisWriting.com:

In conclusion, this service isn’t dangerous to use, but it is not exactly a service that inspires confidence. The prices are pretty high for what you will receive, and although nothing worth having is free, it is still not worth paying so much when placing an order for work that is simply acceptable.
