EssayEdge Services

EssayEdge editors can certainly help with tightening your essay. However, they cannot cut your essay by more than 100 words. Their goal is to help you craft an essay that reflects your own voice and perspective, and cutting an essay by more than 100 words would greatly impact its overall tone and structure to the point where it is no longer your unique work. Please keep in mind word count limits as directed by the institution you are applying to, or your instructor.

EssayEdge offers services ranging from proofreading to full critiques. Our Proofreading service includes a check for typos and grammatical errors, and is best for those with a near-final essay. Our Standard service combines proofreading with a constructive critique based around your essay’s structure, content, and tone. Lastly, our Premier service is the most comprehensive. It includes proofreading and critique, plus a brainstorming session, 2 phone conversations with your editor, and 14 days of email support.

If you are looking for admissions consulting plus editing, then our Big Envelope Package is for you. This includes professional admissions consulting for one application, along with all the editing services needed for each piece of the application. For more information, contact us.

After you have selected your editing service, you’ll be asked to upload your document. Please upload in Microsoft Word format (.doc or .docx), as Plain Text (.txt), or Rich Text Format (.rtf).

For our Proofreading and Standard services, the turnaround time is 48 hours. However, there is a 24-hour rush option available. For our Premier service, turnaround time is usually about 2 weeks, but it does depend on the customer returning a questionnaire at the beginning of the process.

Applications, statements of purpose, personal statements, and academic essays are our bread and butter. However, we are happy to edit any document you can write! If you have something other than an application or academic essay, contact us and we can customize a service to fit your needs.

No, our editors will not write your essay. Please remember that this is your voice, not theirs. Once you submit your essay, they will work with you to make your writing the strongest it can possibly be.

Pricing & Billing

You will be asked to submit your payment after you upload your essay. We accept credit cards, PayPal, and Alipay.

Cost is based on 3 factors: Order type (Proofreading, Standard, or Premier), word count, and turnaround time. Proofreading starts at $69, Standard at $149, and Premier $379. When you upload your essay, the cost will be automatically calculated based on word count and your selections. 

Working With An Editor

Yes! You can request an editor to work with. However, if that editor is unavailable, he/she will be marked as such. If you choose an editor who is marked “unavailable,” your order will be held for that editor for up to 24 hours. If after 24 hours the editor is still unavailable, your order will be reassigned to a different editor and your order’s start time will begin.

Each EssayEdge editor has the credentials to take your essay to the next level. With degrees from top universities and years of experience, they are able to provide you with valuable feedback and edits to improve your essay and ultimately your chance of admission to your chosen school.

If you want to know more about a specific editor, you can visit our Team page for biographies.

All EssayEdge editors are highly qualified to edit any writing. However, you can see their specialties on our Team page. We also provide recommended editors on each editing service page (College, Graduate School, MBA, Medical, Law, and Academic Essays).

You will be able to communicate with your editor via email once the order has been completed. If you purchased the Premier service, you will also have two phone sessions.

If you don’t know who you want to work with, or if your preferred editor is unavailable, we will assign one to you. The assigned editor will have the expertise needed for your project, so rest assured your work will be in good hands.
