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.
