Students today are looking for a way to detail with their copious amounts of homework. One of the more popular solutions these days is to hire a professional writer from a custom writing service. Our website is dedicated to helping you choose wisely.
For this review, we are examining ScholarAdvisor.com. This company entered the academic writing industry in 2011 and was supposedly founded by American college students. They offer a wide range of custom writing services, all of which are related to academics. In other words, they do not write resumes or cover letters nor do they help professionals with website content. But given the name of the company, it probably makes sense that they are concentrating solely on students.
In regards to their writing services, they can put together all of the typical fare including research papers, PowerPoint presentations and book reviews. They also providing editing assistance for students who want their papers to look better.
In order to find out if they are as legit as they claim, we bought ourselves a made-from-scratch paper. The subject was health and medicine and the topic was nursing. The detail of our order included the following: 4 pages (double-spaced), a 7-day deadline, APA formatting, 5 good sources, and standard-quality writing.
Prices & Discounts
A standard-quality paper starts at $14.99 with a 10-day deadline. This is not all that different from what others charge for a college essay. It should be noted that they do not measure the quality of their papers based on academic level. Instead, they use the categories of “standard,” “premium” and “platinum” quality. The deadline options range from as long as 10 days to as little as 3 hours.
ScholarAdvisor.com offers a pretty generous first-time discount of 20% and they also provide promotional codes from time to time. However, we could not find any information about a loyalty discount program, so in all likelihood they do not offer one.
They offer a few freebies that are fairly common in the industry, such as a title page, reference page, and free revisions. Our order cost $75.96 after the 20% discount was applied.
The process of ordering a paper was straightforward. All that is required is to fill out the information form with your paper instructions. Once you make a payment (they accept PayPal and major credit cards), they will assign the order to a writer. They also offer a few extra services for a fee including VIP support, a top 10 writer, proofreading, and a British English.
The good news is that our order was completed by the deadline. It was also 100% free of plagiarism. But that is where the compliments end. Our paper was nothing short of atrocious. The writer does not have the slightest idea about nursing, much less writing an academic paper in general. If an actual student with an important assignment had received this, we would definitely feel sorry for them. It was simply not acceptable.
The one saving grace at ScholarAdvisor.com is that their customer service department really does a fine job. They respond quickly and are clearly well trained since they had no problems answering our questions. They are outsourced somewhere outside of the US, but we had no issues with their accent nor did they have any problem understanding us. When we asked about a refund, they asked us to consider revisions first, but when we insisted on getting our money back, they obligated without any issues.
All of the testimonials on the ScholarAdvisor.com website are universally positive. This is probably to be expected since no company is going to publish negative feedback on their website. When we looked at reviews on third party websites, the reactions to their services was drastically different. Most of the issues involved such things as getting the paper past the deadline and content that was taken straight from Wikipedia.
Advantages and Disadvantages
- A very generous first order discount
- Top notch customer support
- We were given an extremely unqualified writer
- Very negative reviews
If you are looking for a high quality paper, ScholarAdvisor.com should probably not be your first choice. If we based our review entirely on the competencies of the customer support team, we would give it a 10. But even the best support agents are powerless to prevent their writers from writing a disastrous paper. This company is definitely far below average.
