Before you jump into conclusions and say that students love shortcuts, remember the ‘term’ student here is very general. It can refer to a teacher doing her masters, a lecturer doing his PhD or a nurse taking evening classes.
Yes, we love shortcuts, not just students, but most people. That is why we buy cable, and more than six pairs of shoes. We want happiness, and we are buying a shortcut to it. For that reason, we cannot say, they love essay-writing services because they like shortcuts. Let us take a deeper look.
First, no law stipulates that essay-writing services are illegal. Secondly, there is no wrong in asking for help with your writing. Third, stealing and cheating are moral choices made by an individual.
The academic program assumes that people go to school to learn, and that is why you have to pay more to get the best education. Formal education sometimes is just too formal, and not everyone can understand it. It is quite rigid and students chose to let others deal with the rigidness while they explore other avenues of learning. At the end, everyone gets an education and it comes in different forms.
The student essay writing company will always say that it is providing reference material customized to the student’s need. Indeed, sharp students know how to use such companies to hasten their research. Unfortunately, this is not the only way of using academic essay writing services. For many, getting a complete essay or assignment for their class project is the goal. For them, it is not a big issue to buy the assignment; after all, it will not have any significance next semester. At least, that is an argument students use to defend their essay spending.
Some students have language problems. They think in their native languages and have to channel their thoughts in English that is their second language. This is difficult for them and makes their essays read poorly. For such students, essay-editing services come as godsend. By parting with a few dollars, they can get a professor, teacher or native speaker and thinker to edit their work and make it worth submitting for university admission tests in the US and Canada, or even UK.
Still, those who condemn essay-writing services argue that students should always write what they can and get the grades they truly deserve. It is true, until you think of what you deserve and what you do not.
On one part, maybe as part of a motivational speech, you hear that success wants you to get out there and grab it. You look at society and everyone seems to do the same thing to get success. Banks outsource their credit rating tasks so that they can concentrate of minting money in form of interest on loans. Property owners hire caretakers, so that they do not have to deal with all the repair works. Teachers hire their students as assistants so that they do not have to go through all assignments. And what do you expect students to do?
On the other hand, students submit their originally written assignment and loose their scholarship because of low grades. Others loose the chance to intern at the blue chip company. More students fail to get funding for their research projects because they could not come up with a substantive discussion on their dissertation. The numbers added up but explaining them was a nightmare.
Be your own judge and remember nothing is new under the sun. Someone saw a need-gap, he/she filled it and it has become and industry. Somehow, children need food, wives need jewelry and husbands need their toys.
I have handled assignments where students say that their professors asked them to use a pro essay writer as the only chance to improve their paper.
