How it Works

Whether you need comprehensive assistance or targeted advice, there's a plan to fit your family's needs.

1. Contact: Contact me by email or phone. We’ll have a brief discussion about your student and where you are in the process of applying for colleges. At this time, we can set up an initial meeting. 

2. Meeting: I will meet with the student and parent(s) (if you wish) to determine personal goals, explain my advising process and answer questions. 

3. Proposal: I will prepare a college advising plan for your student, which will provide a roadmap to college admissions.

4. Fee Structure:

  • College Launch Meeting: a one-hour family meeting to discuss college options, test planning, timeline, and answer questions.  
  • Packages: I offer 10-, 20- or 30-hour advising packages for a flat fee. This approach offers flexibility, value and continuity.

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.
