Some students look for help from online academic writing services, in order to relieve their coursework burdens. And in response to this growing need, more and more of these companies are showing up, all marketing themselves as the best resource for academic help.

Our job is to help students avoid the scams and choose a writing service that will work well for them. To do this, we do the deep research into individual writing companies and rate them on common criteria.

This BoomEssays review is the result of our latest investigation.

Pricing System

Most students are on a budget, and they may look for the cheapest price they can find. We urge them not to do this, because cheap prices mean low-quality foreign writers and bad products and services. We have been in the business of looking at industry pricing for several years, and we know what is average for the good companies. falls within that average range, and that’s a good thing.


  • Pricing for a basic high school essay begins at $12.99 per page. That cost increases as the academic level goes up and the timeline for delivery decreases. A Ph.D. student will pay as much as $53.99 per page, if he has an urgent delivery need.
  • The other thing we like to see is differentiated pricing for different types of products or services. BoomEssays has these separate structures, which a visitor can access by clicking on the “Get Quote” button
  • Most writing companies offer discounts, and BoomEssays is no exception. There is a link to these, so new and returning customers can see what they qualify for.
  • There are also some free benefits that do have some cash value – bibliography, outline, and title pages, formatting, a plagiarism scan, and revisions.
  • Another element that will impact final cost are the fee-based add-ons – choosing a UK or a higher-level writer, a full plagiarism report, a one-page summary, and personalized customer support, etc. has a transparent, clear, and fair pricing system.

Types of Services

Here we are looking for both quantity and quality.

Let’s talk about quantity first. If a company provides a broad range of services, students can use that agency for all of their needs as they move through their schooling. BoomEssays has this broad range we want to see:

  • Essay Writing: This category includes all types of essay writing, from a basic 5-paragraph piece, to literary analyses, to research-based works, and more.
  • Research Paper Writing: Term and research papers from high school through grad programs – all topics.
  • Thesis and Dissertation Assistance: As little or as much as students may need for these complex, culminating projects
  • Math/Science (STEM): Projects, problem sets, and any other type of coursework with which students are struggling
  • Admissions Essays: High school students need creative and perfectly written college admissions essays; university students looking for grad school admissions must submit personal statement essays. They, too, must be creative and impeccably written. BoomEssays has a department of creative writers just for this purpose.
  • Resumes/CV’s, Cover Letters: Written from scratch, edited or proofread.

Now, time for a look at quality. To assess this, we did all of the following:

  • We read every sentence on the We wanted to see good organization as well as great English composition. BoomEssays did not disappoint
  • We reviewed three samples published on the BoomEssays site. We found scholarly thesis statements, structure, flow, and composition as well as appropriate research resources.
  • We looked at the posts and conversations among users of our site who have experienced as customers. As we suspected, all of this information was positive and complimentary.
  • Out on the web, there were also review comments and feedback from customers. Again, all was as we suspected – great research and writing, responsive customer support, issues or problems resolved quickly, etc.

So, we have both the quantity and quality that professional writing services deliver.

Payment Methods

BoomEssays fulfills our expectations in two ways:

  • It offers payment via all major international bank cards, along with PayPal and through wire transfer. Students who choose wire transfer need to plan on a couple of extra days for payments to go through.
  • BoomEssays does not process its own payments – this means it does not collect any customer financial information. This is handled through a third-party processing firm that many reputable online retailers use.


Again, we are looking for two elements – first guarantees in writing on the company website and second, real follow-through on those guarantees, as testified to by customers.

Here are the promises to its customers:

  • Privacy: There is a Privacy Policy that we urge all visitors to read. It explains what and how information is collected. When customers submit their personal information with their orders, it is “hidden” through encryption and behind firewalls. And it is never divulged to anyone else.
  • No Plagiarism: BoomEssays promises that all delivered products will be plagiarism-free. It runs all final drafts through a plagiarism scan to ensure this.
  • Deadlines Met: Customers state their deadlines. BoomEssays is responsible for meeting those. If a deadline is missed due to a company or writer error or emergency, the customer receives a refund and future benefits
  • Money-Back: There is a Money-Back Policy – again, visitors should read it carefully. It describes the conditions in which refunds will be given.
  • Revisions: These are free and as many as necessary can be requested. There is just one exception. If a change request changes the specifications of the original order and means additional work for the writer, a fee is applied.
  • Quality Assurance Check: Before a final draft is presented to a customer, it goes through a check by the BoomEssays QA department. This ensures that customer instructions have been followed, that research and writing are appropriate for the customer grade level, and that grammar and composition are mistake-free.

Again, receives our top ratings here.

Is Site Legit?

We have a pretty low threshold for the bare minimum of legitimacy – a company that takes customer orders, produces them and delivers final products back to its customers. In a strict sense, they are legitimate. They will never receive a recommendation from us, though, unless they do much more – high quality, guarantees, great customer service, and more. BoomEssays meets our highest standards for legitimacy.


  • Quantity and quality
  • Appropriate Pricing
  • Secure Payment methods
  • Guarantees that are honored
  • Communication with assigned writer


  • High cost of some fee-based extras
  • Blog is outdated
  • Not enough high school samples

To Sum Up

We like everything we see at Here is a company with a business model that puts the customer first through all of its policies, guarantees, and processes. Customers at all levels get consistent high quality from qualified writers and at reasonable prices. Yes, we can recommend BoomEssays to any student.
