  • In my senior year of University I had to basically write a pseudo dissertation for my psychology class. I wasn’t about to kill my last moments in uni on writing an ACTUAL NOVEL about abnormal psychology. Then, I was desperate. Asked every friend I had at the time if they would be willing to write an dissertation for me in less than a month and all of them said no. As a last resort, I turned to Digitalessay.net and I am so glad that i did. For less than $100 my writer finished the whole dissertation in a week. Could not be recommending a website more.
