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 – 4/10

There are two ways you can work out whether the AbrahamEssays offers the service that you’re looking for: either using the order form on the homepage or referring to the services page. As you’ll find, there are only essay writing services available, either in the form of essays, dissertations, coursework or thesis.

However, this is a far cry from other services that offer a variety of services like proofreading, presentation creation and other essential writing services.

abraham essays review

Pricing – 4/10

Using the pricing page, or the order form on the homepage of the website, you can work out an accurate estimate for your coursework. The price is worked out based on the academic level of your work, the deadline required and how many pages you’re looking for.

For example, a University essay with a 5-day deadline that’s ten pages long will set you back around $259, which although is not the cheapest custom essay writing service, many students will fail to justify this kind of spending.

Content Quality – 4/10

There is a range of testimonials and reviews that can be found at the bottom of the website’s homepage. However, there’s no dedicated review page, and none of the reviews has any dates on them, meaning they could, in theory, be years out of date and no longer represent the quality of the service provided.

However, searching online, you’ll find a collection of mixed reviews in which some say the service was okay and average, whereas others claimed the service was one of the worst they had used having received content that was littered with typos, written in bad English and sometimes even plagiarized content.

Customer Service – 5/10

If you plan on using the service or have a question of the company before making the purchase, you’re going to want to be able to get in contact with them. However, there is a limited number of contact options available.

For urgent assistance, you can use the 24/7 live chat or the email them using the email address. However, this is the only contact methods available, bar the physical address, and may be limited if the company is handling a large number of messages.

AbrahamEssays.com Review

Mary Walton‘s conclusion on AbrahamEssays:

As you can see, although at first glance AbrahamEssays.com seems like a professional website, it can leave a lot to be desired. The website feels slightly too expensive for the services that it’s offering and may be best avoided in favour of a more reputable service.

Who Are the Writers?

The homepage of the website claims that the writers used by the service are professional writers who have a broad range of experience when it comes to all kinds of subjects and topics as well as extensive backgrounds in writing itself.

visit site

However, AustralianHelp goes one step beyond by allowing you to browse the available writers on the service so you can pick the one that you believe is best suited to your task. All these writers, found on the ‘Our Writers’ page, have their own individual rating out of ‘5’, information on how many orders they have completed and whether they are available for work currently.

What Is the Quality of the Papers?

Of course, you’re going to want to know whether this is a service that is going to get you the desired ‘A’ grade or leave you behind after class has ended. Thankfully, AustralianHelp.com has this in mind by providing you with two forms of quality check.

Firstly, head over to the testimonials page, and you’ll find a vast selection of past customer reviews that describe the service was ‘better than expected’ and ‘exactly what I needed’. In fact, this page is overflowing with five-star reviews from previously satisfied customers.

Need more? The second thing you can do is head over to the ‘Samples’ page, and you’ll be able to look through a collection of sample material that the writers have produced so you can judge the quality for yourself.

How Much Does It Cost?

Using the pricing calculator on the homepage, you can easily and quickly work out a price for your content. To give you an idea of what they are like, we put in a 5-page standard essay, written to a Master’s level with a deadline of a week.

The total price came to a very affordable $129.20.

It’s worth noting that this price includes unlimited edits, a bibliography, an assignment outline, a title page, all the formatting and a plagiarism report for free, something you simply won’t find on a lot of other websites, ensuring this is one of the most cost-effective.

From the list, you can see that there are around 30 services available in total, covering all the basics from standard essays to PowerPoint presentations.

However, it’s worth noting that some of the leading services in the industry offer more than 50+ services, so if you can’t find what you’re looking for here, you’re sure to find it elsewhere.

writer 4 sale review

Pricing – 4/10

Again, there is no dedicated pricing page, but you can work out an accurate quote for your work using the homepage order form. The price is worked out based on the academic level of the content that you want, the deadline required and then multiplied by the number of pages you need.

To give you an idea of what the prices are like, a standard essay, written to a university level with a 7-day deadline will set you back $17 per page. While this isn’t the most expensive service, it definitely isn’t the cheapest, and at $170 per ten pages, some students may find that this is out of their budget.

Content Quality – 4/10

While there is a testimonials section on the website, none of these reviews really provide any help. The service claims to have served over 24,000 orders, but none of the reviews is over two sentences long, none of them has a star rating or a rating out of ten, nor do any of them have a date.

This means the reviews could be years out of date and no longer represent the service they are reflected. Searching online for more details, I found a lot of complaints about the website that claimed that the overall quality of the content was poor, written in poor English and wasn’t up to a submission standard.

Customer Service – 5/10

When you’re using an online service, it’s so important that you consider the customer support options that are available to you. This is because you may need to contact the company in the case of an emergency regarding your content.

With Writer4Sale.com, you can contact the company using a US toll-free phone number, an email address and a physical address. However, there’s no email form, no international phone numbers, dedicated support emails or social media links, meaning getting in contact with the company could be harder than you think.

Writer4Sale.com Review

Mary Walton‘s conclusion on Writer4Sale.com:

As you can see, while Writer4Sale may seem like a professional and comprehensive custom essay writing service, the site leaves a lot to be desired, and you may feel ripped off with the pricing and the overall quality of the work.

It’s easy to find whether NerdProWriting offers the service you’re looking for by either navigating to the services page or by using the order form on the homepage. As you can see, there are around 30 different ‘Types of Work’ available and an equal number of topics to choose from.

My only downside here is that some sites offer more than 50+ services, and take any topic, rather than allowing you to choose from a list, which may force some students to take their business to another website.

Pricing – 3/10

Next up, you’ll want to know how much your service is going to cost. To save inputting your email address and phone number, I would recommend using the pricing page. The price is worked out based on the service you want, the academic level of your essay or assignment and the delivery date.

To give you an idea of what you can expect to pay, a standard essay written to a Master’s level with a 7-day turnaround time will set you back $27.24 per page. This is an extortionate amount of money and easily one of the most expensive websites I’ve encountered.

Content Quality – 4/10

If you’re paying so much for your service, it’s only natural that you would expect the highest quality content in return. However, this doesn’t seem to be the case. While the website boasts a 4.58/5 rating, there are no testimonials to be found anywhere on the website to back this up.

What’s more, searching online I discovered that there weren’t many reviews at all of the website, but the few that do exist are extremely mixed. While the best comments say the service was ‘okay’, others are claiming that the service is a scam since they delivered low-quality content full of mistakes and there are even samples of plagiarized work.

nerdprowriting.com prices

Customer Service – 6/10

The support you receive from your chosen custom essay writing service is crucial, especially if you need to get in touch with your writer urgently. Surprisingly, NerdProWriting.com performs well in this area.

There’s a live chat service, a basic contact form, an email address, two toll-free phone numbers and a physical address based in Canada. There’s even a Facebook Messenger link so you can receive instant assistance if you need it.

NerdProWriting.com Review

Mary Walton‘s conclusion on NerdProWriting.com:

While the customer support that Nerd Pro Writing provides is of a very high standard, the same can not be said for the rest of the service. With seemingly next-to-no activity, poor quality content and sky-high prices, this site are probably best off avoided.

Services – 6/10

It’s easy to find whether the service you require is available thanks to the order form on the homepage (there is no dedicated services page). From the lists, you can see that a multitude of academic levels are available to choose from, as there is a variety of all the common assignment types.

There are 30 services in total but, while all the basics and most common types are covered, it’s worth noting that other websites have over 50+ services to choose from, meaning this list can seem rather limited.

Pricing – 4/10

Using the same order form, you can work out an accurate quote for your required piece, should you choose to use the website. The price is worked out from the academic level and assignment type you require, then multiplied by the deadline you need. The more urgent you need your paper, the more expensive the service gets.

To give you a rough idea of what prices are like, a Master’s essay with a seven-day deadline will set you back around $24 per page. This is rather expensive for a service such as this, and there are more affordable alternatives out there.

Content Quality – 5/10

The quality of the service is also hard to judge. While the samples on offer look good and high-quality, and the testimonials state the website is great, none of these reviews have dates and could, in theory, be years out of date and no longer relevant.

Searching online, I found a selection of mixed reviews, some claiming the website ‘did its job’ whereas others wouldn’t wish it on their enemies, claiming poorly written content in poor English, and even examples of slightly plagiarized content.

Customer Service – 4/10

If you need to get in contact with the service either before or after making a purchase, you might find this rather difficult. There is no live chat available for instant assistance, but there is an English address, a US toll-free phone number and an email address, although there is no knowing how long you’ll need to wait for a reply.

PapersTime.com Review

Mary Walton‘s conclusion on PapersTime.com:

While the PapersTime website looks good at first glance, the lack of comprehensive contact options, the variety and inconsistency in the quality of the content and the absence of key services means you should probably avoid using the site where possible.

EssayParagraph.com Review – Hard to Recommend

essayparagraph.com review

As a student, there are going to be so many times, that you’re probably already noticed, where deadlines creep up on you, and there’s simply not enough hours in the day to get everything done. Thankfully, there is a wealth of custom essay writing services that are there to help in your time of need.

One of these sites is Essay Paragraph, a service that prides itself on high-quality content and fast delivery times. However, to ensure you’re spending your money in the right places, let’s find out whether this is the right service for you.

Services – 4/10

Finding the service you need on EssayParagraph is no easy feat. There’s no services page, nor is there an easy to find order form, so you’re going to have to hunt around. After extensive searching, I found that the service only offers essays, but not writing services. These are more like essay samples you can use to base your own essay on.

essay paragraph review

Pricing – 4/10

There is also no pricing page to be found anywhere on EssayParagraph.com. This is because it seems as though the majority, if not all, of the samples available, are free. However, with no writing services available, that does mean that you’re going to need to write your own essay, just basing it on the samples that are given to you.

Content Quality – 5/10

After reviewing some random essays on the site, the quality is a bit all over the place. While some essays seem high-quality, and all are sourced with links, some of these links are broken, and some of the grammar in the content is not ideal. Also, you’ll have to write from scratch to avoid plagiarism, which means it will hard to use the website for a quick solution.

essayparagraph

Customer Service – 3/10

There is also not much going on in terms of customer service. Using the contact page, you can find an email form to fill out, but that’s it. There are no phone numbers, no social media links, no email addresses or live chat feature. However, I can’t personally see a need for a contact service, unless you find an error in the content, requesting content (which could take an indefinite amount of time) or you find your own essay or a similar piece has been uploaded to the site.

EssayParagraph.com Review

Mary Walton‘s conclusion on EssayParagraph.com:

It’s hard to recommend Essay Paragraph as a reliable service. While it could be useful for getting you started with your own ideas, you still need the time to write your own essay and won’t be able to use the information that the site provides due to plagiarism, meaning it’s probably better off if you leave the site altogether.

If you sign up for an account from CustomWritingPros and want to put through an order, you can select from many different paper subjects, including Arts & Humanities, Science, IT, Law, Economics, and Social Sciences. The site caters for students from high school up to doctoral level, and you can also choose to have them complete lab reports, write speeches, do editing, and even write your dissertation.

They offer free formatting and customer support and verify that everything they send you is plagiarism-free. They do not appear to have a refund policy, and I did not see any references to possible discount codes or promotions, though these might be visible after login.

custom writing pros review

Pricing – 6/10

Custom Writing Pros allow you to pick your own writer, for an additional fee. You can also receive digital copies of the sources used, which the quoted prices here reflect. I asked for a quote for a 15-page essay due in 5 days and this came out at a cost of $188.00, which is comparable to other similar sites.

Content Quality – 3/10

The value of your paper is directly in line with its quality, isn’t it? I checked over the site but they do not have any samples on offer, and the testimonials consist of a few anonymous positive comments. I did note that the text of the website is very oddly phrased in places and doesn’t look like a native English speaker wrote it. Searching Google for external reviews didn’t turn up much either

customwritingpros.com prices

Customer Service – 3/10

Custom Writing Pros provide a support Live Chat service, though it does not appear to be 24/7 as it was offline when I checked it. You can also get in touch via their Contact Us page. They have links to some social media accounts including Facebook, Twitter, Linked In, Google+, and YouTube. However, they do not provide any information about where in the world their company headquarters is located, and don’t appear to have any customer support phone numbers.

CustomWritingPros.com Review

Mary Walton‘s conclusion on CustomWritingPros.com:

Overall, I was rather disappointed in CustomWritingPros, as I was hoping for a really great reliable site to point you to, but I’m hesitant about the quality of their work, and concerned about their level of customer service. For now, I have to advise you to look elsewhere, and place Custom Writing Pros firmly in the ‘must do better’ category.

It didn’t take much searching to find SenPerfect’s services: they serve high school students up through PhD students. They offer help with a wide range of subjects and will not only write your essays but solve problems, do editing and creative writing, as well as case studies.

sen perfect review

Pricing – 4/10

I quickly and easily obtained a quote for a 6-page essay due in 3 days. Because I always insist on the best, I also requested a plagiarism report (this is usually free but here it cost $9.99), an abstract page, and also VIP support. The total for this came to quite a high sum: $212.47. This would certainly have been out of my budget when I was a student. There’s a possibility of reducing this amount with promotion codes, but no guarantee.

They have a money-back guarantee, which I checked for refund information. It’s important that you read this information over before you make any commitments to buy from them.

senperfect.com prices

Content Quality – 3/10

SenPerfect have a number of reviews from customers on their testimonials pages, but these are undated, meaning they could be from anytime in the company’s history. I also checked for legitimate samples of their work but could not find any, so I went to Google and had a look for external reviews of orders from customers. However, nothing showed up, which suggests to me that this site is either relatively new or has not had many customers. More reliable sites generally have reviews from multiple customers.

Customer Service – 3/10

Sen Perfect have a toll-free contact number right at the top of their page, and also the facility to chat with a customer support team. They also have a support email address on their Contact Us page and it’s fairly easy to sign up, and after that to login. They are legally registered in London. I did not, however, spot any links to social media accounts, which is unusual for companies these days.

SenPerfect.com Review

Mary Walton‘s conclusion on SenPerfect.com:

Sen Perfect seemed to me to be not much better than average. Their lack of external reviews lets them down, and their prices are very high to risk it on what may be poor quality work. In your shoes, I would check elsewhere for someone to help me out with my assignments.

AbsoluteEssays.com Review – If You Want To Take The Risk

absoluteessays.com review

I have not typically used essay writing services in the past until I suddenly realized I had completely forgotten about one of my upcoming assignments, averaging around 5,000 words with less than 48 hours to complete it.

Obviously feeling panicked, I decided to look online at some custom essay writing services I had been recommended by a friend, and I came across Absolute Essays. This is my experience of the website to share with you.

Services – 4/10

Although there was no services page, I was able to see what was on offer by making my way through the order page. There are 30 services in total, including the most standard form of assignment and some more rather niche ones.

However, some of you may be disappointed that the website does miss around 20 key services, including proofreading of your existing essays and dedicated assignments.

absolute essays review

Pricing – 5/10

Although there was no services page, there is a dedicated pricing page where I could find out an accurate quote for my essay or assignment before making the purchase. To give you the lowdown on what these prices are like;

A ten-page essay, single-spaced, written to a premium quality and with a 3-day deadline will set you back around $209. While this isn’t the most expensive service I’ve ever seen, it definitely isn’t the cheapest, so this might put some students off.

Content Quality – 4/10

I was surprised to see that there were no testimonials or reviews to be found anywhere on the website, meaning it was difficult to judge the quality of the content that the website produced straight away. This forced me to search online.

To my surprise, I found a range of mixed reviews. Whereas some students said that the service was okay and delivered the kind of content they expected, many other students were shocked and truly disappointed with what they had received.

There were examples of poorly written English, poorly formatted essays, paragraphs full of spelling mistakes and even samples of plagiarism. With this in mind, the content delivered is inconsistent at best.

absoluteessays.com order

Customer Service – 4/10

If you’re in need of assistance when it comes to using the service, you may feel a little left in the dark by the options that are available to you. On the contact page, you’ll find a very basic email form, as well as a live chat feature that’s available on every page. There’s also a toll-free US phone number and a basic support email address, but this is it.

There are no social media links, no dedicated department email addresses, no international support or multiple phone numbers. This may mean it’s near impossible to get in contact with the company during busy times, a serious problem if you need to get hold of them urgently.

AbsoluteEssays.com Review

Mary Walton‘s conclusion on AbsoluteEssays.com:

While AbsoluteEssays may seem like a legitimate website with a professional service, the website is inconsistent at best and may not give you the service you desire. But, sometimes the service can perform, so it’s on you if you want to take the risk.

Pay4Writing.com Review – Reliable?

pay4writing.com review

Have you ever been in a position where you simply don’t have enough time in your life to complete a certain assignment or essay? Perhaps you’re too bogged under with other work or have other commitments to attend to.

Whatever your reason, be safe in the knowledge that you’re not the only student in this position and there are many custom essay writing services out there to cater to your needs. Pay 4 Writing is one of those services but is it the right service for you? Let’s find out.

Although there’s no services page, you can easily find what services are available by using the small order form on the right-hand side of the homepage. From the list, you’ll see around 30 services in total which cover all the basic services including standard essays all the way through to dissertations.

While this is an extensive list which will satisfy most students, it’s worth noting that many of the leading services will offer more than 50 services, so if you can’t find what you’re looking for, you might need to head over to one of these.

pay 4 writing review

Pricing – 5/10

Using the same order form, you can also find out an accurate quote for the work that you’re after. There is no pricing calculator or pricing page available. The prices are worked out by the academic level of the paper you require, the type of paper, the required deadline and then multiplying that by the number of pages that you want.

To give you an idea of what the prices are like, a standard 10-page essay written to a Master’s level with a deadline of 5-days will set you back around $270. This is quite expensive when you consider there are much cheaper and more affordable alternatives out there. This is a fair amount of money to justify.

Content Quality – 4/10

While there is a testimonials page on the Pay4Writing.com website, which is full of reviews of the service, it doesn’t seem like any of these reviews have much detail into the actual quality that this service provides. Furthermore, none of these reviews has any dates, meaning that they could be no longer relevant.

Taking to the internet, I discovered next to no reviews on the website. There was one, but again, no date, making it illegitimate. This leads me to seriously doubt the quality of the content that the website produces. After all, if it was any good, why aren’t more people using it? But this is neither here nor there.

Customer Service – 4/10

If you do decide to use the website, or you have a question you want to ask beforehand, there are a couple of contact methods available to you. On the contact page, you’ll find a physical location address, a toll-free US phone number and a single email address.

This is a poor selection of communication channels. There’s no live chat, no dedicated pre or post sales email addresses, no international phone line support and no social media links, meaning getting in contact with the company may be a lot harder than you think. Not great if you’re running out of time.

Pay4Writing.com Review

Mary Walton‘s conclusion on Pay4Writing.com:

While the foundations of Pay4Writing look good, there simply isn’t enough evidence to call it a reliable and trustworthy custom essay writing service. If you’re looking for a fast and reliable service that gets the job done, then it’s probably not worth risking your grades on a website that isn’t that well known.
