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.

Elite Assignment Help prides itself on fast and effective customer service, but do they deliver? After sending a query, I got a reply the very next morning with plenty of relevant information. When I then asked for a detail to be clarified, I got an almost immediate reply. Fast support for sure.

Is it expensive?

Not at all. So many people are put off hiring assignment help services because the prices are either too high, or suspiciously low. I had my doubts too. Especially after applying the promotion and a further discount code. The low price can make anyone worried it might be a scam. But I was pleasantly surprised. Despite the low prices, the paper delivered was exactly what I needed.

DoMyResearchPaper.com Review – Not Affordable

domyresearchpaper.com review

While there are many custom essay writing services out there that cater for all kinds of assignment type that students around the world may need, it’s rare that you’ll see one that’s dedicated to research papers, yet that’s exactly what we have here.

So, if you’re looking for your research paper to be completed, surely this is the website you’d choose? Well, before you start spending your money, let’s check out the website to see if it’s the service you’ve been looking for.

While the website might specialize in research papers, there are also several other custom essay writing services that are available. These include standard essays and assignments, PowerPoint presentations and even thesis.

While there are around 25 services available, it’s worth noting that other leading services can offer in excess of 50+ services, meaning you may find this list restrictive. However, there are plenty of academic levels to choose from.

Pricing – 5/10

Referring to the pricing page, you’ll find a table where you can work out the exact cost of your assignment. This is worked out based on the academic of the work you’re looking for, the deadline you need your piece completed by and then multiply this figure by the number of pages (or the word count) of your piece.

As a general guideline, a research paper that’s written to a Master’s degree and sits around 8-pages long, or 2,200 words, and has a 3-day deadline will set you $30 per page, or $240 for the entire piece. While this is not the most expensive service out there, it is still rather expensive compared with other custom essay writing services.

Content Quality – 4/10

Unfortunately, there is no testimonials or reviews page on the website, just a scattering of reviews here and there. However, none of these reviews has a rating system, such as a five-star rating, or a date, meaning they could be years out of date and no longer reflect the service of the website.

Searching online, I found many mixed reviews from past customers, many describing how the inconsistent quality they received, such as work that wasn’t proofread properly, incorrectly formatted, contained plagiarized content and some pieces written in low-level English.

Customer Service – 4/10

When you select any kind of business, you’ll want to make sure the level of customer they have on offer is outstanding, so you can get in touch when you need to while correcting any problems you may come across.
However, Do My Research Paper has some issues. There is a live chat which is basically an email form, a US-based phone number, a single email address and that’s about it.

There are no actual live chat service, no social media links, no dedicated department emails and no international phone numbers, meaning getting hold of the company when you need them might be a lot of hassle.

DoMyResearchPaper.com Review

Mary Walton‘s conclusion on DoMyResearchPaper.com:

As you can see, there are many problems that come with using what appears to be a rather professional website. While the potential is there, it’s probably best to avoid DoMyResearchPaper for the time being until the prices are more affordable and the quality consistently improved.

As you can see, there are around 30 services in total which include all the basic assignment types like essays and PowerPoint presentations, as well as a few niche examples. There are all kinds of subject and academic level, although there are many services out there that offer a more varied selection.

Pricing – 4/10

Of course, you’re going to want to know what kind of price you’re going to be paying for your work as many students tend not to have an overwhelming budget. While there is no pricing page, you can follow the order process to see what price it will come to.

The price is worked out based on the academic level you want, the type of assignment you need and deadline. This is then multiplied by the number of pages you want. As a rough guideline, a 10-page essay with a 3-day deadline, written to a college level will set you back around $190. This is extremely expensive, and other services tend to be far more affordable.

Content Quality – 4/10

With such a lucrative price tag, you would expect the quality to market-leading, yet this doesn’t seem to be the case. Whereas the testimonials page of the website is full of shining reviews, none of these statements has a star or number rating, nor a date, meaning they could be years out of date and no longer reflect the nature of the service.

Searching online through trust websites and forums, many past customers complain about the poor quality of the content they have received, claiming it was delivered late, full of punctuation errors, spelling mistakes, low-level English and even examples of plagiarized content.

Customer Service – 6/10

If you have already invested in the service or you’re still tempted by the service, you’re going to want to know about the level of customer service that is on offer. However, while the website is let down in other areas, this section isn’t too bad.

This is because you’ll be able to contact the website using a chat service, a US toll-free phone number, sending a letter to the physical address (in Cyprus) or via email. However, it’s worth mentioning that there is no Skype, no social media accounts or multiple department emails, meaning you may find yourself left in the dark.

McEssay.com Review

Mary Walton‘s conclusion on McEssay.com:

While McEssay seems like a professional academic writing service, it leaves a lot to be desired, and it may be worth exploring all the options that are available to you so you can find the best service for you.

They include Academic writing, such as essays and term papers, business writing which includes articles and business plans and all to a range of academic levels varying from High School level to PhD.

Pricing – 4/10

Of course, you’ll need to make sure that you’re paying the right amount of money for your budget. Luckily, you can see exactly how much your content is going to cost using the Pricing page of the website. As you can see, the price is worked out based on the academic level you want and your required deadline.

You then multiple this price by the number of pages you have for your total bill. To give you an idea of what these prices are like, a Master’s essay written with a 5-6 day deadline will set you back around $34.77 per page. This is a huge amount of money and one that many students will not be able to afford.

Content Quality – 5/10

I was disappointed to see that there are no samples of the content produced to be found on the website, but there is a testimonials page. However, as you can imagine, this testimonials page is full of shining five-star reviews, yet none of them has a date, meaning they could be years out of date and no longer credible.

Searching online, I found a selection of websites with reviews from past students. The reviews were mixed, some claiming the quality of their ordered content was not up to scratch and contained many problems such as poor grammar, bad English and late delivery.

Customer Service – 4/10

The methods you can use to get in contact with the service is sometimes just as important as the quality. While there is a 24/7 live chat feature on every page, you’ll also find a single email address, a phone number and a billing email.

This is it. There are no social media links, no international phone numbers, no times or days for the live chat or an email form, making it incredibly difficult to get in contact, potentially leaving them in the dark when you need them the most.

Zessay.com Review

Mary Walton‘s conclusion on Zessay.com:

As you can see, there are many problems that ZEssay suffers from which makes it clear why you should perhaps avoid it as your custom essay writing service of choice. Remember that there are more affordable services out there that can guarantee a better quality of service. It pays to shop around.

Services – 5/10

Although there is no dedicated services page, you can easily find out whether the service you’re after is available by heading over to the order form and checking the list. In total, there are around 30+ services to choose from, including all the basic assignment types that you could be looking for.

However, remember that other leading services can offer in excess of 50+ services, typically including more niche assignment types that you may have to go elsewhere for if you need them.

Pricing – 4/10

Using the same order form we listed above, or the dedicated table on the pricing page, you can find out how much your essay assignment is going to cost you. The price is worked out per page, based on the academic level you require and the deadline.

To give you an idea on what the prices are like, a standard essay, written to a Master’s degree with a 48-hour deadline will set you back around $29.95 per page (275 words). This is an extortionate amount of the money and one that many students will not be able to afford.

Content Quality – 4/10

Paying that high price, you’d expect the quality of the content itself to be out of this world. However, this is not the case. While there are samples for you to look through, as well as a handful of dateless testimonials throughout the website (there’s no way of knowing how old these reviews are), searching through trust and review websites, tell a different story.

There are many complaints which talk about poorly written content that is written in translated English. There are also complaints about late delivery times, plagiarized content and even content full of mistakes and typos.

Customer Service – 3/10

The customer service that a service provides is essential. If a change needs to be made to your order or you have an urgent question, it’s vital that you get your answers as quickly as possible. However, with ABCPaperWriter.com, this may be a problem.

Since there is no contact page, the only viewable contact methods are using the US Toll-free phone number or the online live chat service which is only available during set hours of the week. This is it, and during busy times, you may find it hard to get a reply.

ABCPaperWriter.com Review

Mary Walton‘s conclusion on ABCPaperWriter.com:

As you can see, there is lots of room for improvement when it comes to ABCPaperWriter. While the service may seem professional at first, there are many areas which are less than desirable, leaving me unable to recommend this site as a comprehensive custom essay writing service.

If you’re in need of a custom essay writing service to help you meet your academic deadlines while still achieving the grades that you deserve, you may have already stumbled upon Essay Dragon, a seemingly popular writing service that aims to provide you with high-quality assignments, so you can spend your time on other things.

However, just like all businesses and services in the world, you’ll want to make sure that you’re spending your money in the right places. Today, we’re going to explore the ins and outs of EssayDragon.com, so you can be sure it’s right for you.

Services – 3/10

Although there’s no dedicated services page, you can easily find out whether this service offers the assignment type you’re looking for using the order form, which can be found by clicking Order Now. Here, you’ll find there are three main services available, Writing from Scratch, Editing and PowerPoint Presentations.

Unfortunately, this is it, but writing from scratch should be able to cover a basic range of assignment types, but you’ll never know until you try to order.

essay dragon review

Pricing – 4/10

Using the same order form we used above, you can also figure out how much your assignment is going to cost. There’s also no dedicated pricing page. The price is calculated based on a number of factors including the academic level, the required deadline and the number of pages you want.

To give you a rough idea of what prices are like, a ‘Written from Scratch’ Master’s level essay that’s 10-pages long and has a week-long deadline will set you back around $230. While this isn’t the most expensive service out there, it’s safe to say that it isn’t the cheapest.

Content Quality – 5/10

While there are a handful of testimonials to be found on the website, you’ll find that none of these come with a date on them, meaning they could be years old and no longer reflect the quality of the service that the website provides. However, you can find a Samples page, so you can see the quality of the work yourself, although these are rather limited.

On the other hand, searching through trust and review websites online, I discovered a range of mixed reviews from past students, some describing the service to be okay whereas others believed it to be terrible. Some of the most common comments included late delivery times, poorly implemented grammar and even examples of plagiarism.

Customer Service – 4/10

One of the most important factors to consider is making sure that you’re able to get in contact with the company, both before and after sales to make sure that everything is in order. With Essay Dragon, you’ll find a ZenDesk 24/7 chat feature, a toll-free number, a single email address and a basic email form.

While this does provide a range of contact methods, there’s no telling what the reply times are like and whether they’ll get back to you instantly or whether it takes time. It will solely depend on how busy or proactive they are.

EssayDragon.com Review

Mary Walton‘s conclusion on EssayDragon.com:

As you can see, although EssayDragon is not the worst service in the world, there is definitely some room for improvement and students looking for a custom essay writing service to use now may want to think long and hard about whether this is the service they want to spend their money on.

Services – 6/10

EssayService.com has a rather extensive list of services for you to choose from. There are around 30 in total, ranging from standard essays and assignments all the way through to dissertations, PowerPoint presentations and even speeches.

What’s more, there are even dedicated editing and proofreading services available, ensuring that you can complete your existing assignments to the highest quality.

essay service review

Pricing – 4/10

I was a bit let down by the fact that there’s no dedicated pricing page to work out and compare prices, but you can just as easily use the order form on the homepage. However, there is no option for the academic level of your paper, for which you must create an account to find out.

This typically means that the service is quite expensive and it’s hiding its initial price. As a rough guideline, a standard ten-page essay with a week-long deadline will set you back around $85, although this is the minimum price you’ll pay, not include essential extras like editing and proofreading and plagiarism reports.

Content Quality – 5/10

When it comes to the quality of the website, you’ll find that the reviews are mixed. Of course, the testimonials that are on the website can’t fault the service, but this is what you’d expect. Searching online through customer forums and review websites, I found a different story.

There were so many mixed reviews online, some claiming that the service was okay although the content needed to be edited before submission, whereas others claimed this was one of the worst services they had ever used since the content was full of errors, spelling mistakes and incorrect facts.

Customer Service – 3/10

If you’re still planning on maybe using the service, you’ll want to know how effective the customer support team is in case you need them. In addition to the 24/7 live chatbot and a couple of social media links, this is all you’ll find.

There are no phone numbers, no email addresses or Skype links, meaning it may be incredibly difficult to get the help that you need.

EssayService.com Review

Mary Walton‘s conclusion on EssayService.com:

All in all, I’m extremely disappointed with the service that Essay Service provides. With low-quality content, a complete absence of customer service options and mysterious prices, I simply cannot recommend this site when there are better alternatives out there.

While most students will be able to find what they are looking for, it’s worth noting that many niche services are missing, as are dedicated editing and proofreading services.

paperell review

Pricing – 4/10

I was disappointed to find out that there is no dedicated pricing page on the website, only the order form. You can find out the price for your essay using this form, but you will first need to create an account and hand over your personal information, potentially subjecting you to spam.

On the homepage, the site details a special $18 per page offer, although this in itself is far more expensive than many other custom essay writing services and may leave you feeling as though you’ve paid too much.

Content Quality – 4/10

While there is also no dedicated testimonials page, you find a selection of reviews by scrolling down the homepage. However, while these are gleaming five-star reviews, none of them has any dates, meaning they could be years out of date and no longer reflect the service.

Searching online using trust websites and review forums, you’ll find a range of mixed reviews, some claiming that the service they received was okay, whereas the majority focused on late delivery times, examples of plagiarised content and poorly written sentences and English.

Customer Service – 5/10

Of course, it’s only natural that you’re going to want to be able to contact the service should you need to get in touch. However, students will find they are limited to a 24/7 live chatbot that can direct certain queries and a basic email form.

There are no email addresses, no phone numbers, no social media pages or anything of the sort, which will most likely leave you feeling left in the dark.

Paperell.com Review

Mary Walton‘s conclusion on Paperell.com:

While the Paperell site looks professional, closer inspection reveals otherwise. With poorly implemented content, the fact you have to make an account before receiving your quote and the sky-high prices, this is one custom essay writing service you might be better off avoiding.

If you’re based in the UK, you’ll already know how much work you’ve got to deal with throughout every year of your school life. It just seems to get more and more every year, right? How are you supposed to cope and handle this amount of workload?

Fortunately, there is a tonne of custom essay writing services just like Writing Peak that is here to help. However, with a limited student budget, you’ll want to make sure that you’re spending your money in the right place.

Services – 6/10

There’s no services page on the website, only a mix-mashed list of services in the menu. However, if you click on Fast Order, you’ll find a comprehensive list where you can check whether your required service is available.

On this list, you’ll find around 30 core assignment types, ranging from your bog-standard essays and assignments to more complex tasks like reports, dissertations and PowerPoint presentations. Note there are no dedicated editing and proofreading services available.

Pricing – 4/10

Although there is no pricing page, you can still use the same Fast Order page to work out an accurate quote for your content. The price is worked out based on your assignment type, the number of pages you want, the academic level and the required deadline.

However, the work is sent to freelance writers who work for the company. Therefore an accurate quote is impossible until you input your personal information to secure the order. This typically means that the prices are high, and you may need to seek a cheaper alternative.

Content Quality – 4/10

There are a handful of testimonials that can be found on the homepage of the website, yet none of them has a date and cannot, therefore, be trusted to reflect the current condition of the service.

Searching online, my fears were backed up by trust website reviews from past customers who claim the service provides poorly written content in poor English with a tonne of spelling mistakes and misplaced punctuation.

Customer Service – 3/10

Of course, if you want to use a service like this, getting in contact with the company is essential in case you need to make changes to your order, or find out its status. However, the website is a let down since there are only a 24/7 chatbot and a single email address.

This is sure to leave you in the dark if you’re seeking urgent assistance since there’s no phone number, active social media links and the sorts.

WritingPeak.co.uk Review

Mary Walton‘s conclusion on WritingPeak:

All in all, I was rather disappointed with the overall service that WritingPeak.co.uk provides. With a poor payment system where they can’t simply give you an accurate quote, to poorly written content and a complete lack of overall customer service options.
