How Demographic Changes Are Affecting The US College System

How Demographic Changes Are Affecting The US College System

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

Declining Enrollment Numbers

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

Changing Demographics

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

Colleges Struggling To Keep Up

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

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

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

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

Why Are Colleges Struggling?

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

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

Why Are Numbers Declining?

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

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

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

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

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

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

Who’s Affected By These Changes?

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

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

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

What’s The Good News?

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

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

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

The Result Of These Changes

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

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

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

5 Tips for Starting a Business While in College

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

But where do you begin?

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

Know What You’re Getting Into

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

Value Your Time, Build a Website

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

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

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

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

Find Your Free Resources

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

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

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

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

Get Out and Mingle

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

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

Find a Mentor

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

The Bottom Line

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

Is Modern Culture Ruining Childhood

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

How Necessary is a College Education?

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

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

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

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

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

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

Services – 6/10

While there’s no dedicated services page on the website, so you can easily see whether the service you’re looking for is available, you can use the order form on the homepage. On the drop-down menu, you’ll find around 30+ services, many of which cover your basic assignment types.

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.

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.

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.

The website is a pretty good balance of simplicity and a style that is not too childish or patronizing. But when you’re actually in, it can be a bit hard to navigate and find all the functions you need to place and monitor your order. If you get easily stressed with technology, new site formats, etc, then this could be a bit too unfamiliar to you, however friendly the front page seems.

college-paper review

Pricing – 5/10

If you’re looking for a promotion offer, they have a 15% off discount code for first orders, which seems like a pretty good idea, except that basically means that is probably their standard rate. Most people may not be coming back, so this “discount” could well be a farce to convince you to spend.

Their refund policy is pretty good, but don’t expect prompt refunds. Like all companies, they would rather hold onto your money and try and fix the problem, so if you need cash to buy another essay, you might be waiting a while.

Content Quality – 3/10

Although they promise professional writers “with MA and PhD degrees”, nowhere do they claim that all their writers have these qualifications, which is a pretty important difference! However unique, free of plagiarism, and custom the essays are, if they are not handled by an expert they will be full of inaccuracies, and if they are not written by a native speaker of English there will be spelling mistakes and grammatical errors.

college-paper.org discounts

Customer Service – 5/10

If you need a hassle free way to contact support, their number is at the top of their page, and they also offer live chat. Annoyingly, we could not find a physical address or a direct email for them. Plus, you can’t communicate directly with your writers, which is not the most trust-inspiring of set-ups, especially when you consider that the quality of their writers is already not very clear.

College-Paper.org Review

Mary Walton‘s conclusion on College-Paper.org:

All in all, this site is pretty easy to navigate once you login / sign in, and they have some good deals, price-wise. But when you are not getting the quality writers you expect, then you might end up having to rewrite the essay anyway. Which sort of defeats the point of using a site like this.

Services – 6/10

When you first sign up the website can seem a bit overwhelming and demand a lot of info, but at least it is fairly intuitive. You sign up, offer a load of really personal info (which they guarantee is secure but in this day and age we can’t even trust social media, so be wary), say what you want and choose a writer who can do the job you want.

Pricing – 5/10

The prices promised on the front page don’t actually carry over to the main orders. The cost can spike pretty quickly, and you’re not getting one day delivery on a PhD paper at $18 per page! There aren’t any discounts we can see either.

That said, if you want a refund their policy doesn’t seem too bad. They don’t ask you to pay unless you’re satisfied with the paper, which is great and encourages writers to work hard and fast to make sure you’re happy.

Content Quality – 4/10

This is another one of those websites that does “global” site ratings that don’t actually correspond to anything in the real world. This really isn’t reassuring, especially when the highest rated sellers only have around a hundred completed works and profiles that look a bit catfishy. This doesn’t inspire confidence.

Plagiarism isn’t just a great way to fail a subject, it isn’t even legal, so it’s important to look for services with free plagiarism reports and guarantees. As far as we can see they don’t actually offer a plagiarism report, but they do guarantee originality, which is perfect.

Customer Service – 5/10

If you are looking to contact support, the TypeMyEssays phone number is impossible to find. The best you get is live chat, which isn’t really what most of us want.

But once you’ve placed an order, the best support will actually be directly from your writer. You can supervise your project throughout the process, add suggestions, raise your concerns, and communicate with your writer as long as they’re online. This really offers peace of mind!

TypeMyEssays.com Review

Mary Walton‘s conclusion on TypeMyEssays.com:

Overall, this service isn’t too bad. Placing an order is fairly simple, even if the login / sign in and account management process is harder. That said, the prices are a bit of a shock, considering the early promises, and even with a good promotion code, it’s a bit shady.

EssaysHeaven.com Review – Lack of Quality

essaysheaven.com review

This is the website of Essays Heaven, a company that promises entirely original papers, a safe delivery of your order and account details, experienced writers, and a full refund guarantee. But do they provide all that they promise? Is this a legal, legit website? Or is it an illegal scam? In this review we will see what the company offers.

When you first login / sign in, the website looks a bit childish. The layout, colors, and the little wings all seem like a bit too much, and the big, bold font seems more for younger readers than adults. But at least the website is professionally edited and easy to navigate, both of which are bigger problems than an overly simple design. It isn’t great to look at, but you don’t need to spend all week getting used to it.

essays heaven review

Pricing – 5/10

Nothing good in life is free, but nothing good in life is particularly cheap either. Which makes this site a bit suspicious. Their prices are pretty low, and “cheap” appears all across their website, in every header and paragraph. Emphasis on price over quality can be worrying.

If you need a refund, they offer refunds when work is not original or not delivered on time, no questions asked. But when it comes to essay quality, this can be a bit harder to argue. Their team will review your order and see if your complaints are valid. Not only does this mean you might not get your money back, but it could waste valuable time when you need the money to order another essay.

Content Quality – 4/10

A cheap service is never going to be as high quality as a more expensive, or even a moderately priced one. This site is pretty cheap for what it offers, but at least not the cheapest, and they promise native speakers and experts.

That said, they offer a plagiarism report, and you can even get services to help you get creative and write your essay on your own. This is a nice, wide range of services, even if the quality isn’t assured.

Customer Service – 6/10

If you need to contact support, there are a few ways of getting to them. They have an “ask us” message box on their site. Their number and email are available on their website, as is a post address and a contact form.

EssaysHeaven.com Review

Mary Walton‘s conclusion on EssaysHeaven.com:

Although EssaysHeaven is genuine, it’s not exactly a great deal worth the sign up. On the plus side, it is a fairly inexpensive service. But that isn’t everything to a good essay writing service. The services may be cheap, but all the discount and promotion codes in the world can’t make up for a lack of quality.

PhDify.com Review – Doesn’t Inspire Confidence

phdify.com review

This is the website of PhDify, a service that promises to deliver extensive dissertations to order, with expert writers and proofreaders. But however neat the service is, nobody wants to be trapped by an illegal scam. In this review we explore how safe and legit it is to hold an account with this company.

Services – 5/10

When you sign up for their service, the site looks pretty clean and neat, and easy to navigate. It’s actually really easy to place an order. Which makes it so confusing that when you have an account it gets harder to navigate. Maybe we’re just used to the ease of social media sites, but this seems a bit backwards.

phdify review

Pricing – 4/10

When shopping for a dissertation, a discount or promotion code, plus an unclear refund policy, is a pretty bad sign. This quality of work is apparently ensured by free revisions, but the fact they are skirting around their writers’ quality is not a great start. It seems more designed to get you to pay for an essay, and then give up on getting your money back rather than fighting for it.

Content Quality – 3/10

It is hard to find any actual evidence as to the quality of their writers. Especially when their website includes so many mistakes. I’m not sure we can trust a site to provide us with a PhD level dissertation. A great rule of thumb is that if a company cannot proofread its own website, you should not trust them with your academic work.

A quick reverse image search also finds that their supposed writers are just stock images, which really reduces credibility further.

This again supports the notion that this company is offering cheap dissertations to basically trick you into giving them money, and then you give up because it’s not enough money to be worth a fight.

Customer Service – 3/10

If you need to contact support, their number is not easy to find, but they do offer an email, a contact form, and a physical address, which is in Cyprus. There is no way of contacting the writers.

Nobody likes having to login or sign in to talk to customer service, but nobody likes not being able to call them either.

PhDify.com Review

Mary Walton‘s conclusion on PhDify.com:

Although Ph Dify might seem legal, that isn’t all it takes to make it worthwhile to create an account. The site can be a bit awkward to navigate, and, when we’re talking about PhD level work, we really need to know that the writers are able to deliver the deal we need. Low prices are a very bad sign, and this site doesn’t exactly inspire confidence when it comes to quality anyway.

WriteMyEssay.ca Review – Isn’t The Best

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.

When you first sign up the website can be a bit of a maze, but it’s not as bad as some others we’ve seen, especially when you get used to it. The look is pretty funky. And the site seems secure, although we have to offer an awful lot of information to sign up.

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.

The website promises to fulfill all your academic writing needs, from simple essay writing to proofreading, theses, and question responses. Although when you first sign up and create an account it can be a bit awkward to navigate, you will find your way around the website fairly easily. 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.
