I try not to write essays myself, because I don't have much talent for writing, but at university they make me do it. In addition, they give me topics at my own discretion, which are not usually close to me. That's why I found a special rating of essay writing companies, for example I usually go to Ninjaessay, here about him described . Although of course it is suitable only for uncomplicated essays, but the price is more or less not overpriced, so if you have not a top complexity, it is suitable for not very rich students =)
