      great help when I didn't know what I was doing.

      This really helped me especially when I still did know how references and citation works by practice, even up until now that I am used with research works and assignments, it saves up a great amount of time.

      PhD Dissertation Life Saving Service

      Edited my 275 page dissertation in one week. Incredibly detailed grammatical corrections, but most valuable were the comments. Challenging my ideas - where my argument was weak and not understood. A copy edit with these folks is a life saver, from confused and stumped to ready for final committee review - that's a huge leap for all of us that are ABD. Considering what you've already invested, the cost is minimal and worth every penny.

      Very professional service!

      I needed a very specific German personal statement corrected, a service which they don't usually provide, but they did their best and it turned out so perfect! So thankful for that! Been using this service for a couple of years for my german studies, and it is so super practical! And successful!

      I had my reflections edited by Scribbr and I requested Neshika again as I felt comfortable with her proofreading. As expected, she did not disappoint me with the same high quality despite it being a rush job in 24 hours. Thanks Scribbr again.

      Capitalization Issue - Otherwise Great

      Mostly great, but there is a discrepancy between APA guidelines and the capitalization choices. In APA 7 you are only supposed to capitalize the first letter of the first word and the first letter of proper nouns, but Scribbr capitalizes the first letter of almost every word. I actually got points counted off on my assignment for this, so I hope they can fix this. Otherwise, it is great and easy to use when citing articles or web pages.

      What type of content feedback should I select?

      When you submit your essay to our College Essay Editing & Coaching service, you’ll be asked to indicate what type of content feedback you would like to receive. You can choose from three options:

      • Dig deep and challenge me
      • Give me the standard treatment
      • Tread lightly

      Whichever option you choose, you’ll receive in-depth content feedback from your essay coach. However, the type of feedback your essay coach provides may differ, and the option you should choose depends on what outcome you want from the review. You can always elaborate on what type of feedback you want in your note to your essay coach.

      Learn more about the three options below.

      Choose from three options

      Dig deep and challenge me

      If you choose this option, we’ll challenge you to write the best possible essay – no content suggestions are off-limits, including reorienting your topic or reframing your story. Students who choose this option aren’t afraid to go back to the drawing board if it’ll increase their chances of getting accepted. You may have to roll up your sleeves and do some more work on your essay, but your essay will be much stronger because of it.

      Select this option if your priority is to have the best possible essay, even if it requires some extra work on your side.

      Give me the standard treatment

      We’ll strike a balance between “dig deep and challenge me” and “tread lightly.” We may suggest changes to your structure and narrative, including removing weak content, elaborating on certain sections, and adding content to strengthen your arguments. You may have to rework sentences and paragraphs, but we won’t suggest major content changes.

      Tread lightly

      With this option, we’ll focus on improving your essay in a way that requires little additional work from you. We’ll provide you with targeted suggestions for how to refine your essay’s structure and narrative, but we will work within your current structure and topic. While you may have to make a few tweaks here and there, we’ll aim to return you a polished draft that’s ready to be submitted to your chosen colleges.

      Select this option if you are fairly satisfied with your essay and don’t want to make major changes or if you have limited time to revise.
