“Company” or “We” refers to AcadeMode’s Website, the provider of Admission Consulting Services to Customers.
“Order” refers to the actual request for Admission Consulting Services sent to AcadeMode by the Customer which includes particular requirements for specific consulting services (“Services”).
“Admission consulting services” are the outcome of the Order individually delivered to the Customer in accordance with their specifications.
“Application materials” refer to the materials that the Customer will submit to AcadeMode for review including any written materials that will be a part of any application for admission to the academic institution.
“Support personnel” refers to the structural unit of the Company which is responsible for managing and facilitating the Order process.
“Expert” is the person employed by AcadeMode as a freelancer who provides Admission Consulting Services to the Customer in accordance with this Agreement.
1.1. The Customer may request the Service by placing the Order (filling in the Order form) on the Website or by receiving any assistance on this from the Support Personnel.
1.2. The Order form defines the volume of work, Order instructions, and turnaround terms. The Customer is responsible for the provision of the full and accurate final description of the Order on the Order form or to AcadeMode’s Support Personnel that will assist the Customer with the Order.
1.3. The Customer’s name, email address, and phone number must also be provided to facilitate the Order completion process. If any of the Customer’s contact details or Order instructions change over time, it is the Customer’s responsibility to inform the Support Personnel of it.
2.1. The Customer pays for the Order on the advance payment basis and in accordance with the prices indicated on the Website. The advance payment basis presupposes that the Company cannot start Order processing activities without receiving the full payment for the Order. The Company accepts payments made via PayPal, credit cards, or Wire Transfer. The Wire Transfer payment may take from 3 to 14 business days to reach its recipient.
2.2. The Company uses PayPal as a platform for all payments. To proceed with the payment, the Customer is required to pass PayPal Checkout.
2.3. When using the credit card for making payment, the Customer will need to fill in the PayPal form. This is an obligatory procedure to secure payment for the Order; though, this procedure does not imply the creation of a permanent PayPal account; it is only required for a one-time transaction.
2.4. AcadeMode cannot be held accountable for any procedural or technical errors that may happen during PayPal’s processing of the payment, including but not limited to:
2.5. If the transaction fails and prior to contacting the Support Personnel for assistance, the Customer is recommended to check the card balance, review online purchase limits, and/or check card validity.
2.6. AcadeMode assumes no obligations until the Customer has received a confirmation email from AcadeMode’s authorized representative. AcadeMode reserves the right to reject any Order for any reason whatsoever.
3.1. Order validation. AcadeMode is entitled to re-examine the Order details the Customer provided in the Order form and to the Support Personnel via any communication channels after the payment has been made. This is done to make sure that the Order details match. The Support Personnel reserves the right to contact the Customer if there is a need to clarify any of the Order details.
3.2. Change of Order details. The Customer may request the Support Personnel to make changes to the volume of work provided initially. Changes that impact the number of applications, turnaround time, or Service type of the Order may require additional payment. The Support Personnel will contact the Customer to inform them of the additional payment and discuss the details. Note: The change of Order details is not possible once the Expert has started working on the Order.
3.3. Providing admission materials. Before the Expert starts working on the Order, the Customer is asked to provide answers to a questionnaire and/or other necessary materials (resume, cover letter). In the questionnaire, AcadeMode asks targeted questions; be thoughtful and honest and tell us everything. Here, the Company starts to identify Your most powerful business school application opportunities. It is the Customer’s responsibility to provide the Expert with any specific material that the Customer deems necessary for the successful Order completion.
3.4. Communication. The Customer reserves the right to contact their Expert via email. Once the Expert is assigned, AcadeMode will provide the Customer with the Expert’s email address to start communication. The Support Personnel is available 24/7 via the online chat, email, or phone.
3.5. Progress tracking. It is possible for the Customer to track the Order completion process by contacting the Support Personnel via the communication channels listed above or their Expert via email.
3.6. Service delivery. The Company is held accountable for the successful completion of the Order by the deadline. There are two delivery plans:
3.6.1. Regular rates secure the turnaround of up to 2 business days. Regular rates (2 business days) mean that the Customer will receive assistance within 2 business days after providing all of the necessary materials. After the Customer performs the necessary changes and sends the materials back to AcadeMode, an Expert has 2 more business days for the answer. Thus, it does not mean that the whole process of our help takes 2 business days only.
3.6.2. Rush rates allow for the turnaround of up to 24 hours for each submission. Rush rates (24 hours) mean that the Customer will receive assistance within 24 hours after providing all of the necessary materials. After the Customer performs the necessary changes and sends the materials back to AcadeMode, an Expert has 24 more hours for the answer. Thus, it does not mean that the whole process of our help takes 24 hours only.
3.7. NOTE: Turnaround time starts from the moment the Customer provides all of the information necessary for the Expert to start working on the Order.
3.8. The Customer will be informed by the Support Personnel if additional time is required because of the complexity of the task. The completed Order is provided in the written form and sent to the Customer’s email address. It is the Customer’s responsibility to download the completed Order on time. AcadeMode disclaims all responsibility regarding any technical issues that may arise from the Customer’s side and hinder the downloading of the product on time.
4.1. The Orders produced by AcadeMode are meant for informational and educational purposes only. The Customer shall not understand and/or intend to use the information and downloadable resources presented on the Website as professional advice. Beyond all doubt, the information presented on the Website reflects the matters within the area of professionalism of AcadeMode; however, it cannot replace professional advice from the competent person who is aware of the Customer’s individual situation. Neither AcadeMode nor its employees and/or representatives cannot be made liable for any errors or omissions on the Website.

5.3. At all times, AcadeMode shall treat the Customer with respect and shall work with the Customer in a professional manner.
6.1. The Customer acknowledges that they are the applicants to the academic institution, they will write all of the Application Materials and essays, and they take responsibility for all of the resumes, essays, and/or other documents submitted to or produced by the Company. AcadeMode does NOT compose, draft, complete, or write any essays; AcadeMode does not “put notes together.”
6.2. The Customer will not hold AcadeMode, its Support Personnel, Experts, and other representatives accountable for any rejected admissions to any undergraduate, graduate, or professional program or school or any denial of employment.
6.3. AcadeMode has made NO representations about what AcadeMode’s Services will do for the Customer’s chances of admission to any undergraduate, graduate, or professional school or program or for the Customer’s chances of employment at any institution, corporation, business, or government agency.
6.4. Services presented on AcadeMode’s Website and which are purchased by the Customer are provided on an “AS-IS” basis without any warranty of any kind, either express or implied. Not for any reason whatsoever will AcadeMode, its Support Personnel, Experts, and other representatives be held accountable for any damages of any kind, including without limitation compensatory, direct, indirect, or consequential damages, loss of income or data, loss of or damage to property, and claims of third parties arising from any Customer’s rejection from any undergraduate, graduate, or professional program or school of any kind. AcadeMode disclaims any and all implied or express warranties, including but not limited to the applicability of essays, resumes, or letters for a particular purpose and the Customer’s applicability for any job or undergraduate, graduate, or professional program or school.
6.6. While AcadeMode may in the case of need explain the Services to parents or other potential payers, AcadeMode does not work with parents, siblings, or other Customer’s proxies. Unless the Customer is a recommender ordering a Letter of Recommendation Development Service or an applicant ordering a Letter of Recommendation Development Service for the Customer’s recommender, our Customer is always the applicant.
6.7. The Customer should respond with the revised materials to all AcadeMode’s comments within 72 hours after receiving such comments.
6.8. The Customer has 60 days to begin work after receiving the confirmation email from AcadeMode’s authorized personnel. This period is subject to change upon condition that certain agreements were concluded in writing (inclusive of email correspondence) between the Customer and AcadeMode’s representatives up to the time of the purchase.
6.9. If 60 days after the last contact date passed, no custom timetables were agreed in writing (including email correspondence) by both parties in relation to this, and the Customer fails to respond to any outreach efforts of the Support Personnel (by phone or email), the Company reserves the right to cease any obligations to the Customer.
6.10. If the Customer fails to respond to any outreach efforts of the Support Personnel (by phone or email) for the period of 180 days, the Company reserves the right to cease any obligations to the Customer.
6.11. The Customer warrants that all and any information provided to AcadeMode is accurate to the best of the Customer’s knowledge.
6.12. The Customer warrants that they have reached the age of majority in the Customer’s jurisdiction. In case if the minor uses the Services, the Company considers it as the situation in which the Customer, not the minor, has custody of the minor and assumes responsibility for the financial wellbeing of the minor. In addition, the Company judges such actions as the ones in which the Customer, not the minor, will incur any costs associated with the purchasing of AcadeMode’s Services and covering of all and any fees of wire transmittals or full or partial refunds.
6.13. The Customer acknowledges that the Company will periodically send newsletters via email to announce any news, special offers, discounts, and more. The Customer reserves the right to opt out of the mailing list at any time.

8.2.1. AcadeMode does not provide compensation for the already performed work.
