College Vine is not your regular writing service. If you were expecting another service that writes and edits academic papers, this is not the place where you will find such services. Once you take a look at the company’s website, you will find that this company is focused on mentoring students and helping out with applications.
If you are interested to learn more about the company and the quality of service and content they offer, keep reading our review.
Writing Services Offered
The only type of writing services offered is the college essay editing assistance, and the offered tutoring for your college application. Other than this, you can find no writing assistance at collegevine.com.
The company has hired experts that help students of the 9th, 10th and 11th grade only. You can find tutors and mentors that will help you write and prepare for the college application, edit your existing college essay, or get you ready for the SATs.
Considering that this is everything that this company offers, this is not a very popular service on the writing market.
Pricing and Discounts
Probably the biggest reason why collegevine.com is not so popular among the students is the pricing. In order to get a quote or an actual detailed explanation as to what you get from this company’s experts, you need to send out a contact form and wait for 24 hours to get a response. This means that the service has no 24/7 customer service, which is somewhat understandable since they don’t really offer urgent services.
When we filled the ordering form and asked for a quote for editing a college essay, we got a response in 18 hours, which is a very long timeframe for a quote. As it turns out, this company’s services cost a fortune that an average student can hardly afford to spend, and they offer no discounts whatsoever.
Seeing that the only way to get a paper of any kind is to write an essay and ask for some editing help, this is exactly what we decided to pay for at this service. The price for editing was outrageous and exceeded even the rates for writing from scratch found in some of the most reliable writing services. But, for the purpose of this essay, we decided to give the company a shot.
Unfortunately, we weren’t really happy with the service. Instead of editing, we got a list of tips from their experts, telling us what we can improve in the existing paper. The editors did not even mention some of the mistakes we intentionally made to check the editing service, but only gave us some general tips that can apply to every college application essay.
Based on our experience with the company, we wouldn’t say that this is a service you should use for your academic assignments. First of all, collegevine.com is not a traditional writing service, but more of a tutoring/editing company for only college applicants. Secondly, the prices are outrageously high for the services provided.
