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.

Whether you’re struggling to make a start on your essay or simply don’t have time to complete it yourself, things can go from bad to worse when the service you choose turns out to be a scam. So, let’s find out whether this is the service for you.

Services – 3/10

The first thing I noticed was the lack of a services page and the lack of any information at all on the subject. The only way to really find out is to start making your way through the order process.

Here, I found that Essay ws only offers five services; custom writing, editing, PowerPoint presentations, proofreading and business writing. This is a far cry from some of the leading services which can offer in excess of 50+ services, meaning some students will have to take their business elsewhere to a website that can provide.

essay.ws

Pricing – 3/10

Same as the above, there is no pricing page to be found anywhere on the website, so all the information will come from the quote pages.

Using the small-print table, you can work out the price for your order. To give you a rough idea of the affordability of the services, a ten-page essay written to a Master’s degree with a 5-day deadline will set you back around $219.

This is an extortionate amount of money, and it will be hard for any students that I know to be able to justify that kind of spending.

Content Quality – 2/10

According to the homepage of the website, the site has served over 2000 customers and produced over 12,000 essays. Scrolling down, you’ll find a collection of reviews and testimonials from ‘customers’ but none of these reviews has any dates so could, in theory, be decades out of date.

Forced to search online, I found many mixed reviews on the service, some claiming the service is ‘okay’ while others complained of poorly written content and some customers not even receiving an essay, even after the money was taken!

Customer Service – 3/10

There a dedicated support page on the website where you’ll find an FAQ section, a really basic email form and a physical address. There’s also a live chat feature on every page. However, there are no links to social media profiles, no contact phone numbers or email addresses, meaning actually getting in contact with the company could prove difficult.

Essay.ws Review

Mary Walton‘s conclusion on Essay.ws:

Despite the claims made by the website, it’s safe to say there are more affordable custom writing services out there that have a much more reliable service with better support options and more consistency in the quality of the content. My advice is to find another writing service.

Although there’s no services page on the homepage, you can click on the order form and then the services tab to see exactly what Pro-Papers has to offer. If you scroll down, you’ll notice there are around 10 services in total for you to choose from.

This includes your basic essay writing service and research papers to more complex tasks like dissertations and thesis. However, when you consider that leading services offer at least 50 services, you may be forced to take your business elsewhere.

pro papers review

Content Quality – 3/10

If you head over to the testimonials page, you’ll find a collection of reviews apparently left by past customers. However, these reviews are extremely brief, and although they have a rating system, typically five-star, they don’t have dates which means they could be years out of date and no longer relevant.

Searching online for answers, I soon discovered that review sites were home to many disgruntled customers. While some complained that the content hadn’t been proofread and contained many errors, others had more serious complaints about plagiarized work and content delivered with awful grammar and English spelling.

Pricing – 4/10

Heading over to the pricing page, I found that you can use the built-in price calculator to work out the price of your assignment. You can choose the academic level, the number of pages you want and the delivery time that you require.

To give you a rough idea of prices, a ten-page essay that’s written from scratch to a Bachelor level and a three-day deadline will set you back around $230. This is an extortionate amount of money for one paper and definitely makes the service unusable as regular service.

Customer Service – 5/10

However, what was a rather under average service does slightly redeem itself when it comes to customer service options. Head over to the contact page in the footer of the website and you’ll find an email form, a US phone number, a single email address, social media links, Skype address and even a live chat feature on every page, meaning you should be able to easily get in touch with the service if you need them.

Pro-Papers.com Review

Mary Walton‘s conclusion on Pro-Papers.com:

All in all, Pro-Papers.com offers not a unique service. Although the support is there for most people, the price and the quality differs far too much, and you may be left with an essay that simply isn’t suitable. My advice would be to take your assignment elsewhere.

Here, you’ll see a drop-down menu with a list of about 30+ essay service which covers all the basics. However, when you compare the fact that many of the leading services offer in excess of 50+ services, this list can seem fairly minimal.

essays phdessay review

Content Quality – 3/10

The only testimonials I could find on the website was right near the bottom of the homepage. As you would expect, these reviews are shining and state how amazing the service is. However, none of these reviews has a rating system or any indication of the service that was provided.

Most importantly, there’s also no date on the services, meaning they could be years old. Searching online, I found rather mixed reviews of the service, some claiming that it had done the job whereas others said the service they received was appalling and the content they were delivered was in no way suitable for an academic hand-in.

Pricing – 3/10

PhDEssay offers a rather primitive pricing system. Once you’ve made your order, it then gets sent to a dashboard where freelance writers can bid for your work. You then need to select the writer that suits you and your budget.

However, there’s no way you can be sure which writer is going to be best suited to you, and it seems like the company is avoiding responsibility for poor content since, at the end of the day, you chose the writer not them.

essays.phdessay.com

Customer Service – 1/10

I was extremely disappointed to find out that there is no contact page anywhere on the website. Of course, you can contact your writer through your account, but there’s no other form of communication, either pre or post sales with the actual company itself.

There is a supposedly 24/7 live chat, but there’s no email addresses, phone numbers, physical addresses, social media links or anything like that, meaning that some students could be left waiting for support for some time, the time you don’t actually have.

Essays.PhDEssay.com Review

Mary Walton‘s conclusion on Essays.PhDEssay.com:

To summarize, I really feel like the service that Essays PhDEssay provides could be a lot better than it is. With fixed pricing, better quality content and more information on their website, as well as better customer support, this could possibly be a good site. In the meantime, I recommend taking your business elsewhere.

Although most students will find what they’re looking for, there are some niche services missing that you might need.

papers mart review

Content Quality – 5/10

The testimonials page of this website is very well hidden in the footer of the website and for a very good reason. The testimonials are slightly out of date, although they are only a few months old which makes me believe that service isn’t very popular.

When searching online for more reviews, the website has a rather mixed reception. This is because some customers say that their experience was alright and fairly average while some claimed that it’s an awful service that delivers poor quality content way after the deadline and has a poor support team to help.

Pricing – 4/10

At the bottom of the homepage, or on the pricing page, you’ll find a live price calculator you can use to work out an accurate quote for your assignment.

To give you a rough idea of these prices, a standard essay that’s ten pages long, written to a Master’s degree with a 3-day deadline will set you back $320. This is by far one of the most expensive quotes I’ve seen for a long time and will leave a lot of students feeling out of pocket, especially if the quality delivered isn’t great.

papersmart.net pricing

Customer Service – 3/10

The contact information for Papers Mart is scattered throughout the website, but there is a contact page hidden in the footer of the website. Here you’ll discover that the company is a Hong Kong registered company and there are dedicated phone lines for the US, Canada and the UK, although these only operate during certain hours of the week.

Likewise, there is a live chat service, although this also operates during set hours of the week. There’s also an email address for pre and post sales. However, there is no dedicated support emails, no social media links, no international support or Skype contact, meaning some students will find it expensive to get in touch.

PapersMart.net Review

Mary Walton‘s conclusion on PapersMart.net:

There are definitely some improvements that could be made to PapersMart.net. The service is average, there’s still a lot to be done, and it’s not at a stage where you should be spending your money.

As you can see, all the most common types of assignment are provided, such as standard essays and presentations to dissertations and reports. There are about 30 services in total. However, there are only three academic levels to choose from, which are undergraduate, bachelor and professional.

It’s also worth remembering that other sites can offer in excess of 30+ services, meaning some students may be forced to go here if they can’t find the service they are after.

Content Quality – 3/10

Although there is a testimonials page on the website, the reviews found on this page are incredibly brief and don’t provide much information about the service that the site provides. The reviews are also undated which means that they could, in theory, be years out of date.

Searching online for more information, I found a tonne of forums where customers complained about the poor service they had received. These reports included content delivered late, content that wasn’t proofread and content that had high levels of plagiarism.

Pricing – 4/10

Although there is a dedicated pricing page, it’s much easier to work out the quote for your assignment using the price calculator on the homepage.

To give you a guideline to what the prices are like, a standard ten-page essay written to a Bachelors level with a 3-day deadline will set you back around $230. This is a lot of money and a sum that not many students, especially those living on a tight budget, will be able to afford.

Customer Service – 5/10

There’s quite a comprehensive selection of ways you can contact the company. There’s both a UK and a US phone number, two email addresses, although none of them is for pre-sales questions.

It’s worth mentioning that there is also a ‘call me back’ feature and a live chat feature, but there is a notable absence of dedicated email addresses per support department, no email form and no social media page links.

1ws.com Review

Mary Walton‘s conclusion on 1ws.com:

All in all, the experience I had with 1WS.com was fairly average but with a few notable letdowns such as high prices and inconsistency with the content that’s provided. With this in mind, don’t risk your money and take your business to a more reputable service.

You can use the table on the pricing page to work out the accurate price of your assignment. To give you a rough idea of what the pricing is like, a ten-page essay written from scratch to a professional academic level with a three-day deadline will set you back $300.

This is a ridiculous amount of money, and I don’t know any students that will be happy to pay that, let alone a student looking for a regular service.

Content Quality – 3/10

There are no testimonials or reviews pages to be found anywhere on the website. This leads me to doubt the credibility of the website and its legitimacy seriously.

Searching online, I soon discovered that many of the past customers of the website did not have a great experience. Many of these students were located around the world and complained about poorly written content that was delivered much later than required and had to be rewritten and adjusted.

There were also other complaints that the writers were not native English speakers and plagiarism was detected. The reviews were about 30% positive, 70% negative in total.

There are no email addresses, no email form or any form of email address for you to get in touch. This means many students may feel like they have been left in the dark when it comes to requesting support.

Mary Walton‘s conclusion on TopGradeEssays.com:

To summarize, the service that TopGradeEssays offers could be far better than it is.

You can head over to the pricing page to get an accurate quote for the assignment type that you want.

To give you a rough idea on pricing, an essay written from scratch to a professional level with a 3-day deadline (there are only three academic levels to choose from) will set you back around $56 per page.

That means a 10-page assignment will set you back a massive $560! This is an extortionate amount of money and definitely not suitable for a student living on a tight budget.

Heading over to the testimonials page and you’ll find a short collection of reviews that the site hosts. However, these are very basic reviews, none of which are actually dated meaning that many of them could be years out of date and no longer relevant.

Searching online, I discovered many of the past customers had had a relatively poor experience. This is because they include statements such as poorly written content, high levels of plagiarism and there are even some reports of resales.

However, this is it, and there are no dedicated email addresses for different departments, no social media links or phone numbers for international students who want to use the service.

OrderYourEssay.com Review

Mary Walton‘s conclusion on OrderYourEssay.com:

Overall, I was very disappointed in the service that OrderYourEssay provides. Although there’s a wide range of services to choose from, the pricing, quality and customer support options simply aren’t up to scratch.
With this in mind, I highly recommend taking your business to a more reputable website.

What is the best essay writing service available online? Of course, that question is completely subjective – what works perfectly for one student may not suit another quite so well.

However, some things are important, regardless of your individual needs – things such as plagiarism free writing, knowledgeable, top writers and a trustworthy, reliable company.

My picks for the top three legit essay writing services include those features and more. But which one is the right one for you? Read my essay writing service reviews and my guide to choosing the best service for everything you need to know about how to choose the best writing companies.

Why Use Writing Companies?

A college, university or high school student may choose to use an essay writing service for many reasons:

  • It could be that they just don’t have the time needed to complete an assignment for their master’s degree alongside studying for an exam.
  • It could be that they know their teacher likes a certain citation system, for example, APA and they aren’t proficient in it.
  • They might not be able to write fast enough to hit a deadline that they’ve put off.
  • They might need to keep up a good grade average to ensure they get into the school of their choice.
  • They could have realized their deadline is today and they have no way of doing the assignment in a way that would guarantee they would graduate with honors.
  • They might need an outstanding piece of writing to get a scholarship for their senior year.

Of course, this list is not exhaustive, these are just some examples of the most popular reasons students turn to writing services. Any reason anyone used a writing service for is a valid reason. In short, the service exists, so if you want to use it to get a top essay, that’s reason enough.

Where to Find the Best Essays

After carrying out hundreds of essay writing service reviews I’ve seen everything from essay writing service scams through to the best research paper writing service. And I want to share that knowledge with you.

My three recommendations for the best essay writing service are Essay Roo in Australia, UK Writings in the UK and Boom Essays in the US.

Why? Because after much research, I feel that, depending on your location, one of these services will be the best website to write your essay.

Here’s why:

What Will These Writing Services Offer You?

Good writing services, such as the ones I discussed above will be able to help you with any aspect of your assignments.

They will be able to offer you a top quality essay in any of the following subjects as a minimum, although some services also offer more out of the box subjects too:

  • Legal subjects
  • Marketing subjects
  • Law based subjects
  • English based subjects (language and literature)
  • Ethics including medical and nursing ethics and human rights
  • Business based subjects including business finance, business economics, and MBA
  • History subjects
  • Civil service subjects
  • Psychology subjects

I have also found when I review writing sites, that the services who consistently receive the best custom writing reviews perform a large range of different writing services including:

Essay Writing

  • Persuasive essays
  • Definition essays
  • Reflective essays
  • Analytical essays
  • Argumentative essays
  • Cause and effect essays
  • Discursive essays
  • Expository essays
  • Tok essays
  • EPG essays
  • Capstone essays
  • Extended essays

  • Narrative style
  • Descriptive style
  • Dialogue

Advanced Graduate Writing

  • Dissertation – generating a question and writing the dissertation including correct citations in APA, MLA or Chicago style
  • Thesis generating, evaluating research and writing including a full bibliography

Other Services

  • Mathematical and scientific calculations
  • Data analysis and application of results
  • Admissions services
  • Editing and proofreading services
  • CV/Resume writing
  • Copywriting
  • Rewriting

On top of the services offered, the best paper writing service will always ensure your essays are correctly formatted. All that should be left you to do is print the essay on good quality white paper.

The best assignment service sites will also be fully aware that sometimes, students put off papers, or forget about them completely until they realize the need to hand them in asap. On a good service for writing, you should be offered these deadline options as a minimum:

  • 1 hour
  • 2 hours
  • 3 hours
  • 5 hours
  • 6 hours
  • 8 hours
  • 12 hours
  • 24 hours

For times when you need your paper now, the ordering process should be simple enough that you can communicate your needs in 500 words to 1,000 words, or around 3 paragraphs.

An ethical site that doesn’t want to scam you should also offer longer deadline options where your price will be much cheaper. These should include:

  • One week
  • Ten days
  • Two weeks
  • One month

If you notice a site doesn’t offer those options, or the price for a longer deadline isn’t noticeably cheaper, this can often be a warning sign and is the best way to check for a scam site.

How to Choose the Best Writing Service for You

There are several factors to consider here:

Which country are you studying in?

Make sure you choose a service that mentions your country specifically, as the curriculums and marking systems can differ greatly from country to country. Even the best custom writing isn’t going to get you top marks if it’s written in a style unsuitable for your curriculum.

Your budget

Try to find a site that offers good deals and offers rather than rock-bottom prices. If the prices are well below the industry standard, it stands to reason that you won’t receive the best writing help.

The writers

A good essay reviewer will always check the hiring process of the site checks writers’ credentials and tests their writing skills – and you should too. It’s essential that the service you choose knows for sure they are only hiring the best essay writers. This means that they’re academically qualified, able to write a well-structured essay and know how to research from reputable sources.

Check the Writing Samples Available

Always make sure you check out the review my essay section of any writing service website you are considering using. Any reputable writing service will have no issue with displaying example essays from their writers which should be easy and free to access. If these aren’t present, then you should consider an alternate service.

Also, check the quality of the sample essay:

  • Is it written in correct English? Many cheaper sites use writers who aren’t native English speakers and it shows in badly worded essays with bad grammar and poor phrasing.
  • Is the essay well researched?
  • Is it researched from reputable sources and are the citations correct?
  • Do the facts check out?
  • Is the essay suitably sophisticated for the academic level its written at?

Check Customer Testimonials Both On and Off the Site

The first place to check is the review section of the actual site. Are the reviews good on the whole?

If you find that every review is a five-star review, this can raise alarm bells as the reviews could be fake (this isn’t always the case, but I have found that it can be). If you are suspicious of the reviews, use a search engine such as Google and search for off-site reviews which are more impartial.

FAQs

If this is your first time thinking of using a writing service, you are sure to have questions. Here are some of the things I get asked the most:

How Do I Know if A Site is Legit?

Check out my guide (above) to choosing the right site for you including tips to make sure the site is legit.

How do Your Reviews Work?

I check every aspect of the sites I review including writing samples, the hiring process of the writers and customer feedback both on and off the site. From this, I determine whether or not the service is reliable and well put together. I then check pricing and the support systems to ensure I only recommend good services.

You Recommended a Site and I’m Not Sure About It. What Should I Do?

I make every effort to ensure our reviews are accurate and I am confident I would never recommend a site that is scamming customers. Having said that, if you don’t feel completely comfortable with anything on a site, then I would advise you to find a site that you feel more comfortable with. As I mentioned at the beginning of this article, choosing a writing service is subjective and your dream writing won’t always be the same as someone else’s.

Where Do You Find Writing Services?

I constantly check search engines and industry newsletters to find any new writing sites that have started. I also follow up on any customer recommendations or requests to review sites I haven’t discovered yet.

Is Using a Writing Service Cheating?

No, although your professors might disagree if you hand it in as your own work. Using a writing service is the ideal way to get a well-written essay to use as a guideline to ensure the essays you write are hitting all of the key points and are at the relevant depth required for your academic grade. Having said that, many students do hand in the essays as their own and if you use a good service, the paper won’t be plagiarised and therefore, your professor won’t know it’s not your own work.

Is Using a Writing Service Legal?

Yes. You are basically employing a writer to write something on your behalf which is completely legal.

Conclusion

I hope my guide to the best writing services has helped you to know what a good writing service can offer and how to decide on the best writing service for you. Once you find a service you like, don’t forget to check my review of it.

Essays.ScholarAdvisor.com Review – Poor Customer Service

essays.scholaradvisor.com review

Essays.ScholarAdvisor looks like your average custom essay writing service. It has a nicely laid out and rather colorful environment, it’s easy to navigate, and it makes promises to its customers which include access to professional writers, fast delivery times and much, all for an affordable price.

However, how true are these claims and could ScholarAdvisor be the writing service you’ve been looking for?

Services – 4/10

You can easily find out whether Essays Scholar Advisor can complete your service by using the drop-down menu on the top-bar. As you can see, there are around ten common services listed. Although this is what most students are after, the website is obviously lacking in some of the more niche assignment types, meaning you might have to take your business elsewhere.

essays scholaradvisor review

Quality – 3/10

Despite the seemingly overwhelmingly positive reviews on the website’s homepage, there is also a tonne of negative reviews online from past customers. These reviews state that the content was delivered after the preferred delivery date and some even found plagiarism results, linking their content to sample pages from other writing services.

Pricing – 4/10

Using the pricing calculator, you can input your assignment type, the subject, the number of pages and your preferred deadline and quality to get the price of your assignment. As a rough guideline to give you an idea of prices, an 8-page essay, written to a premium quality with a 3-day deadline will set you back $279.

This is extremely expensive, especially when compared to other websites of the same calibre. It’s also worth noting that you can’t specifically pick the academic level that your essay is written to, but rather have to guess with between standard and platinum quality. However, it is worth noting that you can receive up to 20% discount if it’s your first order with the website.

essays.scholaradvisor.com prices

Customer Service – 2/10

Unfortunately, things don’t get much better when it comes to contacting the support teams. Make your way over to the contact page, and you’ll find a single email address that’s used for finding out information before you make an order.

There’s also a UK and a US toll-free phone number and a live chat feature on every page. However, there are no dedicated email addresses for each support department, no social media links to chat with the company directly and no international phone numbers of international students. There’s not even a Skype contact or an email form for the users to fill out.

This may leave some students feeling very much in the dark.

Essays.Scholaradvisor.com Review

Mary Walton‘s conclusion on Essays.ScholarAdvisor:

With all of these points in mind, including the negative reviews, the poor customer service options and the lack of quality content, it’s safe to say that Essays.ScholarAdvisor.com could do a lot better than they are already doing, and it’s probably wise to take your business to a more reputable website.

AdmissionLand.com Review – Low Quality

admissionland.com review

Admission Land is one of the new kids on the block when it comes to custom essay writing services. Let’s face it, writing admission essays can be hard at the best of times and I’m sure you’ve breathed a sigh of relief when you found out that you can have a service do it on your behalf!

However, just to play it safe, let’s see whether this is the admission essay writing service you’ve been looking for.

Services – 5/10

Of course, as an admission writing service, this is not a website you’re going to be able to get your essays and your dissertations written like you can on other custom essay writing services.

However, the site does make some good promises, such as 100% plagiarism free content all created by expert writers and a 100% confidential and safe website and network. It’s easy to see why many students would be drawn to using this site!

admission land review

Content Quality – 3/10

Next, I went to check the quality of the admissions essays the company produces. Of course, the testimonials page is full of shining reviews, but none of these is dated which means they could be out of date and don’t represent the service that’s provided.

Using sites like TrustPilot, past users told a different story. Some had complained that their admission essay had been copied from samples from online websites, discovered when searched for a plagiarism checkers. The service is yet to comment.

Pricing – 3/10

Unfortunately, there is no pricing page to be found anywhere on the website. This is because you need to sign up to the service, handing over all your personal information such as your email address, name and even your phone number before even speaking to a writer to get a quote.

This is a poor way to run business as there’s no indication that the company doesn’t sell your personal details to third parties. This also means, from my experience, that the prices will be abnormally high since all the writers work together to keep it this way.

admissionland.com prices

Customer Service – 4/10

There are a handful of ways you can contact the customer support team. The positives include multiple email addresses for different departments, a toll-free phone line, a live chat feature on every page and an email form.
This is great; however, I would much prefer it if there were social media links, so you can talk directly with the writing community and other customers and if there was a Skype contact for fast video chat. There’s also no other phone numbers of international students who may want to use the students.

AdmissionLand.com Review

Mary Walton‘s conclusion on AdmissionLand.com:

I felt rather disappointed after going to the AdmissionLand website. The first glance led me to have high hopes for the service, but the service simply doesn’t deliver the goods you as an aspiring student deserves.
