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.

GeeklyHub.com Review – Not a Serious Service

geeklyhub.com review

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

Services – 5/10

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

geekly hub review

Pricing – 3/10

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

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

Content Quality – 4/10

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

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

geeklyhub.com who are geeks

Customer Service – 3/10

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

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

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

GeeklyHub.com Review

Mary Walton‘s conclusion on GeeklyHub.com:

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

The free plagiarism check can show that Essay Profs is doing business in a legal fashion, but you never know what illegal tricks scam artists have up their sleeve so be smart and verify before proceeding further.

Pricing – 3/10

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

Content Quality – 6/10

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

Customer Service – 6/10

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

EssayProfs.com Review

Mary Walton‘s conclusion on EssayProfs.com:

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

The sign up process and account creation steps are pretty simple, and it is very clear what service you are buying, what steps you need to take, and what the result will be.

masters thesis writing review

Pricing – 3/10

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

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

Content Quality – 4/10

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

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

Customer Service – 5/10

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

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

MastersThesisWriting.com Review

Mary Walton‘s conclusion on MastersThesisWriting.com:

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

It seems that there is also a range of editing and proofreading services available. While this is a substantial amount of service, I did notice a few key assignment types missing, meaning you may have to go elsewhere.

same day essay review

Pricing – 4/10

The price is worked out based on the type of paper you want, the academic level it needs to be written to, the deadline and then how many pages you want. Of course, as the title of this website suggests, you’re probably going to want your paper within 24 hours.

To give you a rough guide to pricing, a ten-page essay that’s written to a College level with a 24-hour turnaround time is going to set you back just under $300. This is an extortionate amount of money, and completely unsuitable for the majority of students.

Content Quality – 5/10

There are several reviews posted on the website, as well as several writer case studies so you can get to know some of the people who could be writing your assignment. However, none of these reviews give any clear information on what the quality is like. There’s not even a sample page.

Searching online, the results weren’t much better. In fact, the majority of reviews are negative. Scoring an average of 2/5, review sites described poor grammar typical with foreign writers and poor sentence structure.

Customer Services – 5/10

When it comes to getting in contact with the service, whether you’re asking for assistance on your order or requesting a refund, it’s important to know the customer service team is there when you need them.

Unfortunately, your options here are limited. There’s a single email address for no dedicated department, two toll-free phone numbers, and a live chat option. However, this isn’t a 24-hour service, and there’s no way to tell how long the staff are going to take to get back to your query.

SameDayEssay.com Review

Mary Walton‘s conclusion on SameDayEssay.com:

All in all, SameDayEssay leaves a lot to be desired. While the fast turnaround times are admirable, especially with three same-day delivery options, the quality of the content is too inconsistent, and the price they are charging, using a website like this is sometimes not worth the risk.

However, looking at this list in detail, there seems to be a lot of fluff entries, such as repeated content, or services that are just titled using different words. In total, there are probably around 40 services, which should have you covered.

Pricing – 5/10

You can either use the order form listed above, or the dedicated pricing page to figure out how much your required service is going to cost. Bear in mind that editorial reports, sources list, and plagiarism reports will all cost extra.
To give you an idea on what the prices are like a professional level essay that’s ten-pages long with a week-long deadline will set you back around $240. This isn’t bad, and there are even a few discount codes and promotional deals to get you some money off.

There’s also no need to log in or sign up for an account if you want a quote, but you will need to hand over your details when placing an order.

Content Quality – 4/10

While there are several guarantees listed on the website, there is no dedicated reviews or testimonials page, so you can judge the quality of the content. There are also no samples, so you can examine the quality yourself.

Even searching online doesn’t seem to provide many opportunities for reviewed content, which leads me to believe the website is rarely used, and you’ll ultimately be investing in the service at your own risk.

Customer Service – 3/10

If you’ll looking to ask a question before you make a purchase, or you’re purchased, need a refund, or you require assistance on your order, you’ll need to get in touch with the service easily. This can be achieved by using the ‘Get in Touch’ page.

Here, you’ll find a basic email form to fill out, and that’s it. There’s no email addresses, no live chat, no phone numbers and not even a physical address. This leads me to believe the website is illegitimate, and definitely not very popular.

WritingEssayEast.com Review

Mary Walton‘s conclusion on WritingEssayEast.com:

All in all, I was left rather disappointed in the service that WritingEssayEast provides. The service seems to be overcompensating itself with services but isn’t regularly used and doesn’t provide a comprehensive service as you would expect. There are better websites out there.

6DollarEssay.com Review – Acceptable?

6dollaressay.com review

There are so many custom essay writing services out there that it can be hard to differentiate the differences between them. Some offer certain services, some offer various delivery times, while some offer a range of different add-ons and extras for free or a discounted price.

However, one of the most important features you’ll want to be thinking about is how much you’re paying for your essays. As a student, the chances are that you don’t have a lot of money to invest in your services, so you’ll be looking for a company that provides quality for a good price.

Introducing 6 Dollar Essay. It claims to be an affordable service to help you get your work done. But, is this the service you’ve been looking for, or is it going to a con?

Services – 6/10

Referring to the dedicated services page simply takes you back to the homepage, so you’ll need to use the Order Form to see whether the work you require is on offer. Upon a quick class, it seems as though the site offers around 30+ services in total.

This ranges from your typical services like essays and dissertations, all the way through to PowerPoint Presentations and personal statements. While most of the basics are covered, it’s worth noting that some services are offering 50+ services, so you may need to visit these in some situations.

6 dollar essay review

Pricing – 5/10

I was surprised to see that there is a dedicated pricing page here where you’ll find a comprehensive pricing calculator to work out the price of your content. To give you an idea on what the prices are like; A premium-quality, single-spaced essay that’s ten pages long with a deadline of 5-days will set you back around $320.

While this one of the more affordable services out there, this price doesn’t include any extras or add-ons in addition to your document and leads me to doubt the quality of the work.

Content Quality – 4/10

After searching throughout the website, I found a selection of reviews of the homepage that judges the quality of the work but doesn’t really provide much information whatsoever. There’s no rating system, and most importantly, there are no dates.

This means the reviews posted here could be years out of date, and now no longer relevant to the quality of the service provided. Searching online, there are next to no reviews on the service, which leads me to doubt whether this is a legit website, and just not used by anybody.

Customer Service – 4/10

If you do decide to use 6DollarEssay.com, or you want to ask a question before you buy, you’ll want to get in contact with the website. However, these contact methods seem limited at best. In the footer of the website, you’ll find a single email address, a US toll-free phone number and there are some limited hours a week live chat service.

These are the only contact methods available; there’s no telling how quickly the service will, which is not ideal if you require urgent assistance.

6DollarEssay.com Review

Mary Walton‘s conclusion on 6DollarEssay.com:

While 6DollarEssay may seem like a trustworthy site, but it’s obvious that there’s room for improvements. With proof that the quality is good (or even just acceptable) and better methods for contacting the service, this could be a usual custom essay writing service, one of many.

College-Homework-Help.org Review – High Prices

college-homework-help.org review

As a student, you don’t need me to tell you just how hard it can be to stay on top of your workloads. Whether you’re in high school, college, or university, the increasing pile of assignments and essays can soon become overwhelming, and it’s hard to know what to do.

This is why services like College Homework Help exist. These services are designed to help you tackle your workloads, get the grades you deserve and meet your deadlines, all for an affordable price. However, with so many custom essay writing services to choose from, let’s see whether it’s legit and safe or if it’s a scam waiting to get you.

Services – 4/10

While there is no services page on the website, there is an order form on the homepage which you can use to see whether the service you require is available. However, this list only displays three types of service; writing, editing, and presentations.

While this could represent a broad range of available tasks, many of the leading writing services will list the services they offer, so you can be clear with whether your particular task can be carried out. This selection is too limited, and the potential is too high that your service is unavailable.

college-homework-help review

Pricing – 4/10

There is a dedicated pricing page that can be found on the menu of the website; you can use the same order form to figure out what kind of price your work is going to be. The price is worked out based on the type of work, the academic level of the world, how many pages you need, and the deadline required.

For a rough idea on prices, a ten-page writing task of a Master’s level with a 5-day deadline will set you back an expensive $280. This is very expensive for a student on a tight budget, and there doesn’t seem to be any discounts, promotions or codes available to reduce this price, even as a first-time buyer.

Content Quality – 5/10

Unfortunately, there is no testimonials or review page to be found anywhere on the website, which makes it hard to judge the quality of the work that’s produced. However, there is a samples page which you can read through to judge the quality of the content yourself.

Nevertheless, upon reading some of these samples, I found the content to be basic and home to a lot of filler content and fluff. The English is basic at best, and possibly not written by a native English writer. While the content is not terrible, it’s not what you’d expect from a paid service.

college-homework-help.org how it works

Customer Services – 5/10

There are a couple of ways you can get in contact with the support desk if you need help, want to ask a question, or require a refund. On the contact page, you’ll find an email form you can fill out with your request, a live chat that operates during set hours of the day, a US phone number and an email address.

However, there’s no social media links, no Skype details, and no dedicated pre and post-sales support. There’s also no indication into how long it will take to get a reply, meaning you may be left in the dark during busy times.
In some cases, you may need to sign up for an account and log in before accessing some of the contact methods, especially if you want to get in contact with your writer directly.

College-Homework-Help.org Review

Mary Walton‘s conclusion on College-Homework-Help.org:

All in all, College-Homework-Help leaves a lot to be desired. With high prices, inconsistent and variable content quality and an only just-acceptable collection of contact methods, students may want to use this site at their own risk.

From standard essays and PowerPoint presentations to term papers and dissertations, BuyEssays.net seems to have it all. While most students will find what they’re looking for, it’s worth noting that many leading services will offer more than 50+.

buyessays.net

Pricing – 5/10

Using the pricing page, you can use the table to figure out an accurate quote for the work you need completing; as well as the price calculator found throughout the site. To give you a rough idea on prices, a 10-page essay written to a Master’s level will cost you $240 with a seven-day deadline.

While this isn’t the most expensive service I’ve seen, it isn’t the most affordable, and there doesn’t seem to be any promotional discounts or codes on the site to bring this price down, even for first-time buyers.

Content Quality – 4/10

There are two ways to judge the quality of the content that the service produces. The first, you can check out the testimonials page, but some of these reviews are a little old and don’t really describe how the service was. The second way is using the Samples page for an example of what you can expect.

However, upon reading some of these samples, the content seems bland at best. There is a tonne of fluff and filler content throughout the content, the English aren’t perfect, and the information is unsourced and poorly described.

Customer Services – 5/10

Of course, the customer service options available to you are vital for having the best experience, especially if you want to ask a question, make an edit to your order, or request a refund. On the contact page, you’ll find a single email address, a toll-free phone number of US and Canada and a live chat feature that operates during set hours of the day.

However, as far as customer service goes, this isn’t ideal for a busy company. There’s no pre or post-sales email address, no social media accounts or Skype links. This might make it difficult to get in contact, which might leave you in the dark if you need urgent assistance.

BuyEssays.net Review

Mary Walton‘s conclusion on BuyEssays.net:

All in all, there’s definitely room for improvement. With lower prices, more consistent quality and a wider range of customer service options, this could be a good service. However, there are other options out there.

AssignmentGeek.com Review – Needs Improvement

assignmentgeek.com review

It doesn’t matter whether you’re in high school, college or university, you’re going to be assigned work that you need to complete. This could in any form, from essays to term papers, and it’s not uncommon to get lots of it.

This why students flock to custom essay writing services like Assignment Geek. However, there are many of these services out there, which is why you’ll want to make sure that you’re choosing the right one for you. Let’s dive in and see whether this is it, and whether it’s even legal!

While there is a Services tab at the top of the page, this only brings down a list of subjects that can be completed. This in itself is a positive thing, it doesn’t say what formats can be completed, which leads me to believe it’s just Assignments (essays).

Compare this with other leading essay writing services that offer more than 50+ services, as well as editing and proofreading services, and this selection can feel completely limiting.

assignment geek review

Pricing – 5/10

Making your way over the pricing page, you’ll see that you can start placing your order at the solid, and rather above-average price of $15.79, however, this is a discount promotional price down from the original $17.55.

There’s also a 10% off promotion discount code for first-time buyers, but for an accurate quote, you’ll need to input your personal details first. I really dislike these ways of working because there’s no guarantee their price isn’t going to be extortionate, but then they already have your personal details.

Content Quality – 5/10

There doesn’t seem to be any reviews or testimonial pages on the website, although there is a couple of really basic reviews on the homepage. However, these reviews don’t seem legit in the slightest since they contain no real information and no dates on them.

This means they could be years old and no longer relevant to the way the site performs. Searching online, there seemed to be mixed results from past customers or writers, which leaves me to say that the content is inconsistent at best, which is not ideal for a paid deal.

assignmentgeek.com services

Customer Service – 6/10

If you need to get in touch with the service, perhaps asking a question or requesting a refund, you’ll need to be able to get in touch. However, checking out the contact page only awards you with a US phone number, a live chat service, three email addresses and an email form.

While this is an ideal number of methods, possibly ensuring that you should be able to get in touch, there’s no indication as to how long they usually take, which means it could, in theory, be weeks.

AssignmentGeek.com Review

Mary Walton‘s conclusion on AssignmentGeek.com:

To summarize, AssignmentGeek definitely has some room for improvements. With a change to the paying system, more detail on their website about the services and support they offer, more consistently high-quality work and maybe even some samples, only then could this service be recommendable.

Services – 6/10

Of course, as the title suggests, this is a custom essay writing service that specializes in dissertation writing, which happens to be the main service that it offers. However, this seems to be the only service that’s on offer.

Other custom essay writing service is usually more versatile and will not only offer essay and all kinds of writing services, but also editing, proofreading, and sometimes even business writing tasks, meaning this service feels very limited.

dissertation writings review

Pricing – 4/10

While there’s a pricing page on the website, there’s no pricing table or quote calculator to figure out how much your work is going to cost. In fact, the only way to find out is to make your way through the order process to see how you need to pay.

Bear in mind there are several deals and discount promotion codes up to a range of 10% off your order if you can find the codes. You will need to sign up and login into an account for this to work and be applied.

To give you a rough idea on pricing, a 4,000-word dissertation with a week-long deadline and written to a Professional level is going to set you back an extortionate $630, which is not suitable for a student on a tight budget.

Content Quality – 5/10

Heading over to the testimonials, you would expect shining reviews for such a pricey service; which is exactly what you’ll find. However, none of these reviews have a rating system, nor do they have a date, meaning they could be years out of date and no longer reflect the service that’s on offer.

This leads me to seriously doubt the quality of the content the website is producing. There is also no samples page to read through, which is another tell-tale sign of poor quality content.

dissertationwritings.com prices

Customer Service – 4/10

When it comes to the customer service you can expect from the website, there are several options available to you if perhaps you want to request a refund, or ask a question. These include a live chat system which operates during set hours, a Skype call button, a toll-free US phone number and a single email address.

While this may seem like a broad collection of contact methods, if you consider how many customers could be using the site and there are no dedicated lines for each problem (pre/post sales), you’re probably going to be waiting for some time.

DissertationWritings.com Review

Mary Walton‘s conclusion on DissertationWritings.com:

All in all, DissertationWritings leaves a lot to be desired. While the basic service definitely exists and can probably cater for a basic level of content, it really doesn’t seem like the site puts effort into showcasing that it’s one of the best, despite the high price tag which will perhaps leave many students out of pocket.
