Murphy College Consultants

Welcome to Murphy College Consultants. My personalized approach to college admission ensures that high school students will find schools that are best suited to their academic interests, extracurricular pursuits and long-term goals. I am well-versed on all types of college options available to students from the highly competitive East Coast liberal arts colleges to state universities across the country. I offer a comprehensive counseling program which is customized for each client as they navigate the college search and application process. I also offer smaller, more specialized packages from guidance on curriculum to essay brainstorming. Finally, I offer abridged versions of my services through college admission seminars designed for high school students and their families. These seminars serve as a launching pad to the college search and application process.

Whether you are a student seeking specialized packages, or are looking for guidance on the entire process, my expertise and background in the field will help you to find many schools where you will ultimately be successful and happy. 

The question is – are you ready?
