How We Stay Cheap

As you can tell, we aren't fancy. Our website is basic and costs us very little. Our staff is small and consists entirely of college students who are talented in writing and attend top universities in the country. At WriteKey, our trustworthy and knowledgeable student editors review essays and communicate with clients directly through a reliable third-party platform, rather than through a more expensive custom platform. Our student editors are an excellent resource to help you improve your essays because they, themselves, have succeeded in the application process recently. If, for any reason, you are not satisfied with our services, we will be happy to issue a refund. For information about how we keep payments safe, click here.
