Very reasonably priced for what you…

Very reasonably priced for what you get. I was applying to graduate school after six years away and had nobody to ask for advice or editing help on my personal statement who knew any better than I did. And I was on crunch time. For $30, I got solid advice to make my writing stronger and all my grammatical and punctuation errors fixed (there were plenty), and for another $20, I got it back the same day. I will definitely be using this service again in the future and recommending to my little sister when she applies for undergraduate next fall. Thank you!

Very Helpful!

The editors at Scribber edited and proofread my paper, making it much better. All the edits are done in a way that you can accept and decline the edit, so you see your original paper with the edits superimposed on it. There were lots of comments and explanations to show my why the editors changed something. At the end I also got some comments and and overview of the top mistakes in my paper. It's very useful for both improving that one paper but also for helping me become a better writer. I also love that the editors are very knowledgeable on the APA format and helped me format by paper according to APA guidelines!

Scribbr proofread my 85k thesis in 7days!

I contacted the Scribbr team with a pressing need, proofreading my 85k PhD thesis in 7 days. The Scribbr team replied promptly and accepted my job, even if that meant splitting the work between different editors, which did not happen eventually. The proofreading itself was open to my needs, very constructive and of high quality, and most importantly it was delivered on time! My experience speaks for itself. I am very satisfied with the job, and I would highly recommend it.

Frequently asked questions

See all
Will my college essay coach give me content advice?

Yes. All our college essay coaches are subject-matter experts and can help you make decisions regarding the content of your essay. Your coach will help you make a strong case for your admission.

Our essay coaches will provide feedback on…

  • Whether your topic is appropriate and how to strengthen it
  • Whether your essay demonstrates positive traits and authenticity
  • Whether the narrative flows smoothly and grabs the reader’s attention
  • How to dig deeper and show self-reflection and insight
  • What content is missing and should be added
  • What content is weak and should be removed
  • How to shorten your essay to meet a word count limit

However, we will never…

  • Write or rewrite content for you
  • Research or fact-check your essay’s content

If you have any questions, feel free to email info@scribbr.com.

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.

Questions?

If you have any questions, feel free to email info@scribbr.com.

Can I choose between American, British and Australian English?

Yes, in the order process you can indicate your preference for American, British, or Australian English.

If you don’t choose one, your editor will follow the style of English you currently use. If your editor has any questions about this, we will contact you.

Can Scribbr proofread my document during weekends and holidays?

Yes, regardless of the deadline you choose, our editors can proofread your document during weekends and holidays.

Can I choose between the 6th and 7th editions of APA Style?

Our APA experts default to APA 7 for editing and formatting. For the Citation Editing Service you are able to choose between APA 6 and 7.

What types of editing does Scribbr offer?

Every Scribbr order comes with our award-winning Proofreading & Editing service, which combines two important stages of the revision process.

For a more comprehensive edit, you can add a Structure Check or Clarity Check to your order. With these building blocks, you can customize the kind of feedback you receive.

You might be familiar with a different set of editing terms. To help you understand what you can expect at Scribbr, we created this table:

Types of editing Available at Scribbr?
Proofreading
Correction of superficial mistakes, such as typos, misspellings, punctuation errors and consistency errors.
Yes!
This is the “proofreading” in Scribbr’s standard service. It can only be selected in combination with editing.
Copy editing
Focus on grammar, syntax, style, tone and the conventions of the field. The editor also considers the internal logic of the text and flags any obvious contradictions.
Yes!
This is the “editing” in Scribbr’s standard service. It can only be selected in combination with proofreading.
Line editing
Focus on language, style, concision and choices. The editor helps you strengthen your story, polish your sentences and ensure that your use of language drives home your ideas.
Yes!
Select the Structure Check and Clarity Check to receive a comprehensive edit equivalent to a line edit.
Developmental editing (i.e. content editing, substantive editing)
This is the first step of the editing process and applies to very early drafts. The editor helps you structure your ideas, decide what story to tell and find direction for your writing.
No.
This kind of editing involves heavy rewriting and restructuring. Our editors cannot help with this.
