Liz Murphy excels at helping students narrow their college search without adding undue stress on their lives. Over a series of meetings she helped my son develop a sense of his own priorities through self-evaluation exercises. She broke down the process into manageable pieces and also incorporated our concerns as parents. She presented us with a college report and met with us to explain how the colleges and universities she presented might be a good match for him. I'd highly recommend Liz Murphy to any student or parent feeling overwhelmed by the college search process.
