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.

When you sign up, the process is simple, but maybe a bit too much information is shared. Always be wary of giving out too much information when you create an account anywhere, especially in this day and age. The best option is to create an account using as little information as possible and to pay through a secure means, such as a credit card or PayPal.

writemyessay.ca

Pricing – 4/10

If you’re looking for great prices, this, like many similar services, gives the illusion of a better discount than it offers. They don’t give detailed information, but basically the price will get you less than 300 words per page, which is a bit of a rip-off with some services offering 300-600 words per page.

They do offer a 5-15% off discount, which is a pretty sweet deal. But they also start at 13.73 Canadian dollars. And the reason for the odd price? They actually calculate them in US dollars first, which can get confusing and frustrating if the exchange rate bounces around a bit. Besides that first promotion code, don’t expect any free services, but the bad part is trying to get a refund. Remember that it is entirely at their discretion!

Content Quality – 5/10

They assure us that their writers have previous experience writing professional and at least a bachelors degree, but there isn’t much guarantee of this other than their word. It would be nice if, like some companies do, they let us see what their writers’ credentials are. On the plus side, they guarantee that they pick specific writers for each job, to ensure the quality is what it needs to be.

Customer Service – 6/10

If you need to contact support, their number is prominently displayed on the site and when you login / sign in you can also access other options such as chat, email, etc, more easily. It also has a physical address, which reassures us that the company is legit. They guarantee 24/7 assistance, which is very useful when you’re on a deadline and need to know how everything is going.

WriteMyEssay.ca Review

Mary Walton‘s conclusion on WriteMyEssay.ca:

As you’ve seen in this review, WriteMyEssay isn’t the best service out there. It may not be illegal, but it’s still not the most secure place to have an account, or the cheapest way to get your essay written. And for what you’re paying, it would have to be a masterpiece to be considered a deal.

dissertation help review

Pricing – 3/10

The prices here look a bit steep, with a page costing you as much as $41 for only 275 words! Many other sites offer much better deals on comparably good dissertations, which makes this one really offputting to say the least.

But there are no obvious discounts, promotions, or voucher codes visible. Forget about getting any extras for free. What is more, their refund policy is really evasive. It sounds great at first, but then you realize it’s up to them to decide if they should refund you, and they might even suspend your account if you push too much!

Content Quality – 3/10

Of course, you don’t want to get a low quality dissertation, so when you login / sign in, it’s reassuring if you can talk to your writer. Annoyingly, here you can only speak to their customer service reps, which is disappointing. It basically means all your information goes through up to four people before getting back to you!

dissertationhelp.com about

Customer Service – 4/10

A legit site always has ways of getting in contact with support. They offer a toll-free phone number for the USA and the UK, which is great, a home address, an email, and a live chat. These services are available almost all week long, which is great, but remember that they can take a while to answer. If you’re relying on speedy customer service responses to get you sorted, then you might miss out here. What is more, even though the company is based in Hong Kong and selling to people speaking English, their customer service support team is based in Eastern Europe, which could make it hard to work out where your dissertation is coming from.

DissertationHelp.com Review

Mary Walton‘s conclusion on DissertationHelp.com:

In summary, DissertationHelp, like many similar companies, tries to lure you in with their prices, a loose refund policy, and guarantees of originality. But even though it may not be an illegal service, this doesn’t make it a great service. You’d be better suited taking your order to a more reputable company.

It isn’t insanely modern looking either, but it works. After a while you get used to it, and when you login / sign in you will know where to go.

pro-academic-writers review

Pricing – 4/10

The prices are presented right away on the page via a price calculator. Starting at around fifteen dollars a page, the prices spike from there, and there are not many promotion or offer codes available, sadly. They don’t even guarantee free revisions. It might be OK if you don’t need anything urgently, or a lot of work doing, but otherwise it can get expensive pretty fast. They offer discounts for return customers, but that isn’t really useful to newcomers.

Content Quality – 5/10

The content here isn’t too bad. The writers seem to know what they are doing, even though they do not guarantee that the writer will have a degree or be a native speaker of English. The problem here is they do not let you actually get to know your writer properly, or even talk directly to them, so you never actually know who is working on your essay. It could be a professional, or it could just be some random person. Not inspiring.

pro-academic-writers.com how it works

Customer Service – 5/10

Customer service is much more open than on many other websites offering similar details. You can contact them via phone number, email, postal address, or live web chat, all of which are offered as 24/7 options. However it can be pretty difficult to actually get through 24/7, and their representatives can’t always help you, as so much of the work lies with the writers. This can make it a bit of a frustrating experience if you need to rush your order, or make an edit in a short space of time.

Pro-Academic-Writers.com Review

Mary Walton‘s conclusion on Pro-Academic-Writers.com:

In conclusion, Pro Academic Writers is not a scam, or illegal, but that doesn’t make it a great website. All round, it’s pretty average. There are many better options out there if you want a great deal, a safe option to order from, or great customer support, and many, many cheaper options out there as well.

They promise completely original work, which is great, but they also promise a standard of work that, looking at the website, we’re not confident they could actually deliver. They also keep changing their story about what the minimum qualification their writers have is, which is suspect. The website also requires a lot of information, that may not be safe.

tutoriage review

Pricing – 5/10

Tutoriage.com charges a higher price for its work, but the upside is that you only pay for work that has been completed. Not paying in advance is great, but remember you can’t just do a runner. Not only is that illegal, but the account you create when you sign up records your details and you may be unable to sign in or login on any other account in the future too.

You have to sign up to get an estimate, which is a bit annoying, and there are no deals or offers that we can see, never mind any codes. And they want to guarantee you a refund, but they will try and fix your work first. Which is nice in a way, but also annoying if you just want to get on with stuff and order somewhere else. At least they don’t actually have your money, though.

Content Quality – 3/10

They promise that their writers are all Ph.D. holders and rank them as though they were some of the best writers available globally. But a little research shows this isn’t legit. These writers don’t appear anywhere else on the internet and, honestly, some tumblr blogs have more reviews and complete jobs than their “number one” writer. It might be legal to lie on your own website, but that’s some shady business there. Especially when their own website is not properly proofread.

They also make their writers bid for your work, which isn’t exactly the way you want to organize this. Sure, it’s nice to talk to them and have their support, but choosing the writer should be the job of the company that knows them best, not of the client.

tutoriage.com how it works

Customer Service – 5/10

If you need to get in contact with support, they offer live chat, a 24/ phone number, and an email. They also have their writers email posted publicly, which is a little weird, but not wrong exactly.

Tutoriage.com Review

Mary Walton‘s conclusion on Tutoriage.com:

Although Tutoriage aims to provide you with great work, fast delivery on each order, and plenty of kinds of deal and promotion, the reality is that they just don’t have the quality to match. Some of their claims are totally unfounded and it’s hard to trust them after discovering that.

The prices here are very transparent. They have a price calculator and the cost starts at a mere $12 per page, which is great for an essay. However the price doesn’t decrease per individual page, so it adds up quite a lot more than some services, that do not charge the same amount for each page.

If you need a deal, they offer a discount of 5% off 15+ pages, 10% off 51+ pages, and 15% off 100+ pages. Besides that, they do a number of things for free that other sites charge for, such as the bibliography, formatting, and amendments. If you need a refund, don’t get your hopes up. The website says they have never had a single dissatisfied customer. If you’ve ever worked in retail, you know this is impossible. People complain. Not only that, but your refund period is 3 days after your order is completed.

Content Quality – 3/10

Their writers are not guaranteed to have degrees, be native speakers of English, or, well, anything. All they promise is that they are professionals.

Plagiarism is not legal, and it’s good to know that this service checks all documents to ensure they are original. But besides that, no guarantees about quality.

Customer Service – 6/10

If you need to contact support they offer live chat, although that doesn’t mean you can reach someone 24/7. However they are always eager to help when you get to them, which is nice.

Write-My-Essay-For-Me.com Review

Mary Walton‘s conclusion on Write-My-Essay-For-Me.com:

Write My Essay For Me is not the worst service available, but that doesn’t make it your best option either. They offer a relatively cheap service with a cheerful disposition, but this doesn’t make up for their lack of guarantees about quality or refunds. You want to choose another essay writing service if you want true quality.

Services – 4/10

Established in 2009, this website has to be doing something right to keep getting people to sign up and create an account. Or they could just make you create an account to even get an estimate.

The website tries to be attractive and modern, but it’s hard to navigate. When you long in /sign in, you need to make an account to see what they will charge for your essay. The website is pretty convoluted to navigate to boot, and all in all you might be put off just by the amount of information needed for the sign up process.

essay quake review

Pricing – 4/10

The prices at EssayQuake.com are pretty high, starting at $17.55 per page and only increasing from there! What is more, unlike some websites that offer an estimate via a calculator, this site requires a full sign up to get a detailed estimate. So they’ll have your details either way. Though at least not your bank details: all payments are securely made through PayPal.

If you are looking for a discount, promotion, or any sort of deal code when you order, then you’re out of luck. Although, on the plus side, for huge orders or orders with a long date they let you pay by instalment. If you need a refund, then be careful. Nothing is guaranteed, and they aren’t about to give anything away for free, regardless of quality.

Content Quality – 4/10

The writers here hold advanced degrees, but the website doesn’t claim they all hold degrees, which is a bit of a red flag. And the fact that this website encourages writers to compete for work, and advertises writing a page to perfection in a single hour, is not great. I am not sure I would trust this site to produce that sort of quality from such an environment.

On the plus side, they make sure to fully encrypt your data and offer a plagiarism report, so at least you know you’re getting original work. If you order from them you will likely need to carefully proofread it and ensure it’s accurate, though, because there is no grade guarantee. And considering they misspell the word “institutions” as “instituttions” on the page promising great international writing standards… Well, let’s just say that’s not promising.

essayquake.com prices

Customer Service – 5/10

If you need support, most of it will be going through the writer directly. This has its upsides, as you can talk to your writer about the work they are doing, but it also means the website is not as easy to get a hold of or hold accountable.

Their contact number is available 24/7, which is nice, but the hold can be long.

EssayQuake.com Review

Mary Walton‘s conclusion on EssayQuake.com:

Essay Quake doesn’t look like a scam, which is good to know. But legal doesn’t mean safe, or worthwhile. Other than being a genuine website, it really doesn’t meet expectations. The quality of customer support, the essays written, and the general service is not worth the money or effort.

Services – 5/10

This website offers all sorts of services for all subjects, from simple revisions to full dissertations, provided you give them enough time.

Although these services are legal, just because they aren’t illegal doesn’t mean you shouldn’t protect your information. Never disclose your login / sign in details to people in real life, nor real life details on the website. As long as you do this, your details are safe here.

Pricing – 4/10

The prices per page start around $10, but scales up depending on what level you’re at. On the upside the prices are fixed, but on the downside they scale quite sharply for higher education.

If you are a discount, deal, and promotion fan, they usually have a code running for new customers. When you sign up, create an account, and place your order, you can find a coupon code that you can use for a price reduction.

If you want a refund, they have a moneyback warranty that accounts for all situations. Unlike some scam sites that take your money and guarantee nothing, this website offers a full, free refund if they cannot find the right writer, meet your deadline, etc. And they offer a partial refund for smaller complaints. But in real life you need to prove that you need a refund, and it might not be that easy to do as 1CustomPapers.com doesn’t want to give you your money back once you paid them.

Bear in mind that a number of things, such as extras and VAT, cannot be refunded. Plus, it can take up to 10 business days to get a refund, which can be annoying if you need the money for a new order.

Content Quality – 4/10

They boast that their writers will get you an A+ on every assignment, however, unlike some other services, they do not promise degree-holding writers. Their writers are native speakers of English by default, but your order can be done by ESL speakers as they work there too. However experienced the writers are, though, if they have not studied your subject to degree level, you may be put off.

The work is guaranteed to be plagiarism-free, and if it is not up to standard you can get a full refund.

Customer Service – 6/10

If you need to get in contact with customer support providers, they offer all sorts of ways of connecting with them 24/7: phone, live chat, email, and even a physical office. This adds to the sense of security we have in the company. However instant response is not always guaranteed, sadly.

1CustomPapers.com Review

Mary Walton‘s conclusion on 1CustomPapers.com:

1CustomPapers is a legit website, however their writers are not all people we would want to trust in. Unfortunately missed deadlines, bad quality and neglected guidelines are reported to be found in their work.

Services – 5/10

When you sign up and create an account with Flash Papers you will be receiving a closer experience than just a passive order. They keep you in contact with your writers, so that you can talk directly to the person or people working on your order. This is different from many other websites, that offer no contact with your writer.

That said, this can of course put you at slightly greater risk of your confidentiality being broken. However low the risk of being identified is, it’s important to not discuss personal details with your writer.

flash papers review

Pricing – 6/10

The prices are a bit on the high side, presumably because they earn money that could be spent on support by keeping writers in contact with clients.

Also, FlashPapers.com does not offer any discount or promotion code. On the plus side, loads of the features that other services charge extra for are free on this service, which will save you lots of money even without extra discounts.

If the work is awful, it is free: they have a refund guarantee. So don’t be put off by their prices: they are so confident in their writers that they promise a full refund if anything is not as you expected it to be. Read their refund policy for me. But online reviews say that they don’t provide refunds that easily and often refuse to give it at all.

Content Quality – 5/10

FlashPapers cover all subjects, including mathematics and sciences, and their writers are from all over the world and hold degrees in the subject you are ordering. Being able to talk with them could also help you with your work later on, as you will better understand the end product they deliver.

Plagiarism isn’t just about getting a legit original paper. It’s also about not getting an illegal copyrighted work! They promise 100% authentic papers, which will not only get you great grades, but make sure what you deliver is legal. Unfortunately their customers reported some cases of plagiarism and missed deadlines.

Customer Service – 6/10

Customer service comes in live chat, online, and phone number formats, and they are available 24/7 on all three. Not only that, but you can talk to your writer directly, so if your question is for them, you don’t need to wait for the third party to get back to you. Whoever you talk to, our sign in / login details will always be kept private.

FlashPapers.com Review

Mary Walton‘s conclusion on FlashPapers.com:

Far from a scam, Flash Papers provide an average service at a slightly high price. Although there are better out there, it is not one of the worst sites either.

EssayGoal.com Review – Average Quality

Essay Goal is a pretty average paper writing service. The website is safe and everything looks legit. Services, pricing, content quality, and customer service are all decent. You will find the same general services staffed by experts, as with many of these kinds of sites.

EssayGoal.com offers a range of services. They will write a specific part of an extended essay, research paper, dissertation, or any other long-term assignment. They also provide comprehensive literature reviews, can improve your business plan, and can do research and prepare a bibliography list. Editing, proofreading, and formatting services are also provided. They provide their services to high school, university, and post-graduate students. They have writers on staff who are native American, British, and Australian English speakers.

essay goal review

Pricing – 5/10

The prices vary quite a bit; it totally depends on your order. Your price it calculated based on the academic level, the subject, the length, the deadline, and the quality of writer you request. One nice thing about this site is they do have a promotion, just like every other essay writing service. They are running a promotional deal where you will receive a 5% discount when you sign up for your first order. Just make sure you have your code ready at the checkout or you’ll have to pay more than other essay services ask.

Content Quality – 5/10

At Essay Goal they say that papers are written from scratch and go through three stages of evaluating and editing. All assignments are checked for plagiarism. Their team consists of former teachers, professors with PhDs, and managers. But online reviews claim that Essay Goal hires ESL writers a lot. Papers are not always written by experts in the field you have requested and that’s why you can get not something you ordered. They have claim to have 667 active writers on staff, but I don’t think that’s true. The quality is fine but it’s nothing outstanding, it’s the same quality you will find at lots of other sites. Basically the standard staff you will see at similar places.

Customer Service – 4/10

EssayGoal has 24/7 support chat, an email address, and a toll free (in the U.S.) phone number where you can contact them for support. They have a policy of free revisions within 10 days of your deadline. If you feel you are entitled to a refund you may contact the support team. The average time for reviewing a refund request is 5-10 days. But beware, you are only eligible for a refund within 10 days of your assignment’s deadline and it is said that refund is not that easy to get. Customers can sign in to their account once they have one set up.

EssayGoal.com Review

Mary Walton‘s conclusion on EssayGoal.com:

This is an average essay writing service. Everything seems legal, and it’s definitely not a scam, but it’s nothing special. The services are what you would come to expect from these kinds of websites. The pricing is kind of expensive, although it will vary a lot depending on your needs and specifications. Overall nothing special.

EliteAssignmentHelp.com Review

eliteassignmenthelp.com review

Studying can be very challenging, especially when it comes to that one assignment you have no clue about. But that assignment matters, especially when it makes the difference between passing or failing, or between hitting top marks or… not.

And there are loads of services out there promising to help you with this. But it can be so hard to find the right one, which you can trust with such an important part of your academic career. Here I review my experience with EliteAssignmentHelp.com, a website that promises to deliver expert assignment services.

What is this service?

This is a load of different services bundled into one. Whether you need to write a full paper from scratch or you just need someone to make your assignment look tidy, there are people here who can help you out. It even includes free bonuses, which other services would charge you for.

elite assignment help review

Is this legit?

The website does not give any information out to third parties, and all payments are securely made via PayPal, in case you need a refund.

visit site

As for the writers, they are thoroughly assessed and have signed an agreement promising to respect your privacy. At no point will they have your login / sign in details, phone number, or anything else except your account name and order details.

Not to mention, your contact details will be totally safe here.

My assignment is really specialized!

No problem! Elite Assignment Help counts on writers from all sorts of backgrounds. It doesn’t matter if you need a professional editor, or someone with three PhDs in biology, they can find someone who knows your subject inside and out. You can rest easy knowing your order is in safe hands.

I’ve done most of the work, I just feel stuck.

EliteAssignmentHelp doesn’t just write. They offer proofreaders, editors, rewriters, problem solving, dissertation services, etc. Not only will you not have to pay for a full writing service, but they can even use what you’ve already done to make the finished assignment tie in with your academic work so far. Nothing lost if you sign up and see.

What if I have a question?

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.

EliteAssignmentHelp.com Review

Mary Walton‘s conclusion on EliteAssignmentHelp.com:

The EliteAssignmentHelp design overall is really simple to use, and the end result is very high quality, much more than I’d expected. Would definitely use them again.
