Ultius Review

Ultius.com has been in business since 2010 and states that it is a fully American company with only American writers. It offers academic and business writing products, editing and proofreading, admissions essays, and resumes/CV. We have prepared this review as an objective accounting of all aspects of the company, and have used several sources for information – the site itself, Ultius testimonials that the services publishes on the site, other customer and employee reviews found on social media and writing review sites, as well as an evaluation of a research paper we ordered ourselves. The following is the result of our investigation.

Products and Services

All types of academic writing products are available, starting at the high school level and proceeding through the doctoral dissertation level. Graduate level products include theses and dissertation chapters. Business writing includes only resumes and CV’s. Editing is available as well.

We called the customer service department to ask questions about dissertation work, available writers, qualifications of writers, and about progressive delivery and payments. The representative was pleasant but was unable to answer our questions. She too our phone number and stated someone would return our call with the information. That never happened.

Trustworthiness

We base trustworthiness on the actual performance as it relates to following customer instructions in the production of written works, the meeting of deadlines, protection of personal information and security in payment procedures.

All Ultius customer reviews indicated that deadlines are consistently met. A few customers voiced concerns that their specific instructions were not completely followed and that they work had to be returned for revisions.

According to the site, personal information of customers is digitally protected and is not shared. As well payment procedures (major credit cards and PayPal) are processed securely through a third-party with SSL security certification.

Based upon these factors, we can definitely state that Ultius is not a scam.

Writing Quality/Writer Expertise

The company states that all of its writers are American and that they all possess graduate degrees. There is no way to check that. In terms of writer quality, there are no major complaints, although some customers have stated that they did have to send work back for revisions before they were satisfied.

The paper we ordered was received on time. The writing quality was appropriate for the undergraduate level, although there were some obvious grammatical issues, and the resources used were adequate. The writer make several errors in formatting and we did have to return the work for correction.

Writer expertise is assessed based upon sample writings on the site itself as well as anonymous comments from the writers themselves on employee review sites. Several writers stated that they were producing research works outside of their major fields of study, and this is a cause for some concern. As well, some of the grammar used by the writers in preparing their comments indicated that they may be ESL themselves.

Overall, our Ultius rating for quality is “Good.”

Pricing and Discounts

Ultius-Review-Prices

Ultius.com prices are a bit higher than average. An 8-page research paper that we ordered was $176.00. Because there were no Ultius discounts for new customers, we had to pay that full price. We saw no mention of Ultius.com coupon codes which is common with other services, although there was a place on the order form for a customer to add an Ultius promo code that is evidently reserved for “loyal” customers. There is no definition of that term on the site, so we assume it is something awarded through customer service at some point.

Additional Features

Ultius does offer free title and bibliography pages as well as free revisions if an order has failed to adhere to a customer’s instructions. Beyond these three items, there did not appear to be any other benefits.

Ultius-Review-Free-features

Conclusion

Our Ultius review revealed that the company is legitimately in the business of providing writing services to its customers. As well Ultius BBB rating is “A,” another sign that it is very legitimate. If we were to discuss overall Ultius.com pros & cons, we would state that customers do get what they order and deadlines are met. Our experience and that of several other customers is that often the works have to be returned because customer instructions were not followed.

They claim they can meet any deadline, but as soon as I put my order in, giving them 12 hours to complete 4 pages, they immediately asked for an extension. If I had the option of an extension, I would have done the work myself. But now the deadline has passed, and still no work has been produced. They cannot seem to get a hold of the writer supposedly working on my paper. So now, with class in 30 minutes, I have nothing to turn in and am horribly screwed. I better be getting a refund, but they seem rather shady and I will probably get screwed on that too.

I'm ashamed and beyond furious. My university accused me of plagiarism. It was an easy fast one-page assignment and turned out to be copied. Although I made some changes to personalize the discussion it still came back over (90%) unoriginal. Lychee 39454 Shame on you!

This site is good in the sense that it helps people better understand certain topics. However, those who are in a tight spot and are looking to purchase the full rights of the paper they are paying hundreds of dollars for should look elsewhere. It truly baffels me why someone would actually pay hundreds of dollars for a paper that should only be used to advise. Once you purchase the paper it is not yours, they own the IP rights and the intellectual property of the paper's contents. Lets be honest here, over 80% of the people looking to use this kind of service are using it because they are unable to write the papers that have been assigned to them through their respective universities - these customers are looking to take full ownership of the paper (it becomes their property which they can do with as they please). I don't know any sane person who would be willing to pay $300 - $1000s of dollars to have someone write a paper that according to the company would have to be cited in the customer's paper if they decided to use it. Read their privacy and terms of use policy: http://www.ultius.com/legal/terms-and-conditions.html http://www.ultius.com/legal/fair-use-disclaimer.html http://www.ultius.com/legal.html http://www.ultius.com/legal/privacy-policy.html All in all, it is a legitimate site that sells customers overpriced knowledge that costs more than what it would cost to take a 3 credit course at a decent University. Don't get me wrong, it is clearly a good site and has a BBB rating of A, but it seems like it is more or less just taking advantage of people who don't take the time to read what they are buying and what they charge gives an uninformed customer a false sense that they are getting what they paid for. Ultius indicates that the paper they send you may be redistributed meaing that you are paying for a paper that may have been written on information that is no longer pertinant to present day knowledge. Basically this casts a shadow of doubt on their pricing scale because it reads as if it is indicative that these are the costs it is going to take to pay the person writing the paper but in all actuality you may just be giving the company hundreds of dollars for them to simply send you a copy of something that was written by someone a few weeks ago. Just seems like shady practices even though they are very clear about the intent of their service which is basically academic advising. They are very good about getting rid of your information after 90 days which is good if you decide to use the service. Everyone who has purchased papers without a full understanding of what they were buying should be aware that they are at risk and know that if they have "passed the papers they purchased off as their own" - they have put themselves at the mercy of their academic institution if they are caught.

They blocked me straight after I complained about the disgusting essay they wrote for me, and also asked for the complete money-back. HATE YOU ULTIUS!

Though this website looks absolutely great, you should think over all pros and cons. And please, ask them to give you a discount - as some products are definitely overpriced.

Average service. Nothing special. I don;t know why all these people are so excited about it. Getting second-rate projects with the late delivery and pay over $270 for this? No, thanks. I would better look somewhere else.
