Yes I did use EssayEdge. I had them edit my personal statement. I thought they did a great job. I had it edited by 2 friends & a family member but they were really able to make it more concise. I tend to be verbose & they cut it down to make the character limit but kept the meaning.
Other thing that was cool is that I had the editor's email so I could ask him questions. However, he would not reread the essay after I made changes. I would have to pay again & specifically ask for him.
