Faces of Finance

03-06-2021 • 26 minutos

Many aspects of our family life intersect with our finances. A topic that comes up frequently is planning for our child's college education, both financially and being accepted into a college of choice. That's why we are lucky to have Liz Murphy, the Founder, and Owner of Liz Murphy College Advising, join the show. First, Liz explains why high school students need to start their college research during junior year. If you're confused about the application process, there are many benefits of collaborating with a college advisor. Tune in as Liz reveals the steps that parents should take to prepare for college financially, and she gives application tips for financial aid.

Highlights:

  • The best way to keep costs low for college is by attending in-state public universities.
  • Look for universities that are going to offer students significant institutional aid through need-based aid or merit awards.
  • Leave your car at home; it can add to your expenses while at college.
  • The most significant benefit of working with a college advisor is that they can save you money and time.

About Liz Murphy:

Liz Murphy: Founder/Owner, Liz Murphy College Advising

As an independent college consultant and a graduate of the UC Berkeley College Admissions and Career Planning program, I have successfully guided high school students on their college admission journeys for over eight years. In addition, I provide pro bono services to low-income and first-generation students. I was a parent leader in public and private education for fifteen years worked in the public health field for over ten years and taught high school biology and chemistry in the Peace Corps in Kenya. I bring significant experience in communication, research, and project management to my personalized college consulting practice. I am particularly interested in helping students pursue higher education in STEM and assisting students in applying to the University of California system.

I survived the college admission process with my own children, who graduated from Gonzaga University (2015) and UC Berkeley (2017). Every year I tour dozens of colleges and universities throughout the United States; attend professional conferences, college fairs, and workshops; and network with fellow professionals in the field. I keep up-to-date on changes and developments in the world of higher education in order to best inform and guide my students and families.
