Ultius.com Writing Service$19
We were happy to learn about the free revision policy at ultius.com, but something in the description seemed really off. The company offers unlimited revisions, but only if you ask for one within 7 days. And this is not even the weirdest part of the offer. When we got to the quality evaluation part of our ultius review, everything became much clearer.
The company is legit and is far from a terrible service, but the things we learned while doing our essayangels.net research made us rate it somewhere in the middle of our list. Read the rest of this ultius review to learn the details.
List of Services
Finding this information was real torture since there are many pages that speak of services, but none of them has a full list. If you wish to see the complete list, we urge you to check the ordering form as if you were to select the paper you need. When you do, you’ll get a very clear idea as to what the list looks like.
The length is satisfactory and the list combines many popular papers with something they call ‘miscellaneous’. This group contains those papers that couldn’t be categorized in the remaining categories, papers that are usually listed as ‘assignments’.
Why the company chose this term, we are not sure. Still, their list is very good, so the only issue that remains is the presentation of this list on the website. Finding the list can pose a real problem to students who want to check how much they can get from the service.
Beginning with essays, dissertations and research papers, all popular papers can be found at ultius.com. Some of the less popular assignments you can get here are business plans, cover letters, book critiques, journal critiques, and critical analysis.
Surely, we found the lack of some papers to be a bit concerning (for example a lab report), but this range of services is very acceptable for a legit writing company.
Pricing, Discounts & Payment Policy
We wouldn’t say that the prices are cheap, but they are far from unrealistic. The deadline options, however, are a bit strange, because the company has a 20-day deadline for high school students, and a 12-hour deadline for a PhD dissertation project.
The first is very unlikely to be requested because let’s face it, no high school student gets such a lengthy deadline for a paper. Many companies offer such lengthy deadlines to make you believe that the lowest rate is very cheap, so we recommend checking the whole list before you come to any conclusions.
As we said, the prices aren’t cheap. For example, a high school student would have to pay $19 per page for a paper they order within the week, while a Master’s student is required to pay $30 per page for a deadline of 10 days. If you go further and choose one of the features like ‘top 10% writer’ or want to get a previously assigned writer to work on your paper, you’d have to pay an amazingly high 15% and 20% extra.
But, the outrageous extra feature rates are the least of your problems. We believe that this is a realistic price, but also expect to get a loyalty program or a special offer. Otherwise, this is a costly service with no benefits for the regular customer, which is a very strong reason to continue your search for a writing service.
Without the discount, we paid the highest price we have paid for a while. Many companies choose to at least invite new customers to test their writers with some kind of a discount. We got none.
So, we had very high expectations because of the amount we spent here. These expectations were not met. The paper was not terrible, but it was not worthwhile the money or time we spent waiting for it. Ultius.com seems very professional, but they really have to reconsider the pricing if they keep delivering such average quality.
The agents of the customer service are highly responsive, but their service is a bit unprofessional. When we asked for a revision because of some plagiarized content we found, as well as couple of paragraphs we found to be irrelevant to the topic, we had to wait a long time to have it approved.
When it was finally approved (this happened after 20 minutes we spent waiting on the live chat), the agent informed us that the writer had four days to revise our paper. Four days! This would cost most students to miss their deadline. If you have four extra days to wait for a revision, you may as well sit down and write the paper by yourself.
So, the revision policy is a big scam. You get free revisions within a week, but since the submission of revised papers is within 4 days, you can get a maximum of 2 revisions. And since the writer did a very poor job with the first revision, we did not even bother to ask for another round.
We weren’t charged for this revision, but got it a little less than four days after. It is a ridiculous offer, indeed.
