About Me

The clizollege search and application journey can be a very exciting, yet stressful time for students and families. Lengthy applications, confusing test schedules and challenging essays can be a major source of tension and anxiety. In the beginning, the process may feel long and complicated, becoming rushed and hectic as deadlines approach...then the wait begins. Before you know it, the May 1 decision day is here.

I created my college advising practice to provide a calm, organized environment where students can focus on their unique set of strengths, experiences, academic aspirations and expectations. My objectives are to help students and families reduce stress and gain confidence by teaching them how to navigate the college admissions world and find the college that best fits their goals and interests.

I provide expert evaluation, analysis and guidance so that no matter where a student falls on the academic spectrum, he or she can shine on college applications!

Testimonials

Saying that working with Liz Murphy was an absolute pleasure would be an understatement. Before walking into her office I was discouraged about my essays and getting into the Doctor of Physical Therapy programs I was interested in. Sitting in her seaside office calmed my nerves and allowed me to focus on producing strong essays instead of my doubts. Liz was encouraging, patient, and someone I felt comfortable working with. She was able to help me formulate my thoughts into concise, well-written, and strong essays that accurately showed graduate programs my potential. Her support and insights guided my writing into essays I was proud of. When I received my acceptance letter from the highest-ranking program, Liz was one of the first people I excitedly contacted. After working with Liz I felt confident about my essays and I know that I was accepted into top programs because of her help. I would gladly recommend her to applicants searching for a counselor who can both strengthen their applications and their self-confidence throughout the process.
