Has anyone had any experience with IvyEssays - their website is: http://www.ivyessays.com/editing.asp?p=5

Their rates are more reasonable than essayedge.com and comprable to essayRx.com.

I've decided to use a professional editing service - now I'm trying to figure out which one is best for the $.

Thanks for the feedback.

I have firsthand experience with essayedge.com. Their prices were indeed a bit stiff, but they added were able add stuff to the essay I would never have thought of. I too was deciding between ivyessay and essayedge, and I just figured you probably get what you pay for.

I tried one that sounded like ivyessays (don't remember now), I remember it was cheaper, but the quality was horrible. If you really want to try, give them something short to edit.

Essayedge was much better. Yes pricey. If you can get simple essay questions edited by friends with good writing skills/English professors/writing center, save your $ for personal statement and major essays by EssayEdge.

Does your school have a writing center?

Most big schools do and employ english grad students.

My private school's writing center employs undergraduate english majors that don't do much besides circle a sentence and say it's akward-needs to be reworded, without providing suggestions.

Are other university's writing centers actually helpful?

Ours has PhD and MA students who actually work hard. It's a useful resource that not enough people take advantage of.

What about contacting a past english prof?

That's about all they can do (at least with my job tutoring) other than grammatical errors b/c they're not supposed to feed you words (academic dishonesty) If you went and told them it was for grad school and wasn't going to be turned in, they might be more helpful...
