5.20 Review

At first glance, seems to have it all together when it comes to providing students from high school through Ph.D. programs with the online writing services they need, especially urgently. In fact, the company promises a full essay within three hours’ time.

According to the Same Day Essay website, the company has been in business since 2010, and in doing our research and study for this review, we have been able to locate customer reviews and comments on the service that go back to 2012. In conducting this review, we have looked at the website content, the testimonials and information about writers provided on the website, pricing, customer service, benefits, and the quality of a research paper we ordered. We have added up the pros & cons, and have summarized them in this review.

Services Offered

SameDayEssay limits its products and services to academia. As such, it serves students from high school through Ph.D. programs. Students can order anything from essays and research papers to case studies, lab reports, book reviews, presentations, theses and dissertations. It also provides editing and proofreading services. The company guarantees custom original writing that conforms to all detailed instructions of the customer. An additional offering is college admissions and personal statement essays for grad school admissions.

Prices prices are well within the average range for writing services. Costs begin at $11.30/page for a basic high school essay and graduate to $44.95/page at the Ph.D. level. Pricing is based upon the product, academic level of customer, and deadline urgency. Our -page college level research paper was priced at $143.60 before adding a promo code for a 15% discount.

Discounts and Additional Features

Same Day Essay does not have a comprehensive discounts program with coupon codes, etc. Instead it offers a bonus program. For each order placed, the customer receives 10% of that order cost placed on account. This may be used to offset the cost of a future order.

We did not find additional features on the site, although we saw that we were not charged for our title or bibliography page, so we assume they are free.

Customer Support and Site Usability

The SameDayEssay site is simple and direct. There is not a great deal of text on the main pages – About Us, Prices and Discounts, and How It Works. There are footer pages that briefly give detail about ordering essays and papers. The site loads quickly and also includes sample writings and a blog, as well as some company policies about revision, privacy, etc.

We contacted customer support via phone and live chat. The agents are obviously ESL and we were unable to get detailed answers to some of our questions. We question whether this site is fully manned by English-speaking pros, because the people we talked to were obviously foreign. We were also promised a full 200-page Ph.D. dissertation within seven days.


Same Day Essay states that all of its writers hold Master’s and PH.D. degrees. Given this, we expected quality to be high. We were disappointed.

  • We reviewed one lengthy sample of a dissertation. First, it was only 40 pages long, far too short for a dissertation. Second, the dissertation in question is not original. It is contained on several other places on the web. There is thus no way of knowing who really wrote it.

  • Former customers who placed review comments on the web were disappointed with the quality of writing and the fact that resources were old and outdated. Many stated they were sure they had a foreign writer

  • The paper we received was delivered on time. But it did contain some of the issues that others spoke to – awkward sentence structure, incorrect verbiage, and some grammatical errors that are usually found when ESL writers are used.

  • At one point, the company says that all of its writers are located in the U.S. and UK; at another, it states that writers are all located in the U.S.

While Same Day Essay is certainly not a fraud or scam, we cannot say that it provides superior scholarly writing. Further, there is no BBB membership, something we do like to see.


Quality of research and writing is not what we would expect of a professional service that has been in business this long, especially one that boasts only MA and PH.D. English-speaking writers. There are other services that do better. Overall, we are assigning a rating of “Fair.”
