Testimonials

Families who hire Liz Murphy to guide their student through the college admissions process are lucky to have her on their team.  She is a caring, dedicated professional who listens and communicates well.  Most importantly, Liz has a unique way of making each student feel special and capable. In addition, Liz’s participation in educational conferences, organizations and college tours means she has access to the most up-to-date information.  She knows how to create a college list that is balanced and tailored to a student’s interests and ability.  As a colleague and friend for five years, I continue to be impressed with Liz’s professionalism and knowledge about college admissions.
