Tim & Betsy are able to say the same things mom and dad say, but because it is coming from them, it holds more weight with the kids and cuts through the parent veil of stupidity. I am so proud to tell people that our daughters are Perkins & Murphy kids!

I wanted to thank you guys for all that you have done to get me to where I am now. It really is incredible that you help out so many students in such an in-depth way, and deal with the uniqueness of each student’s situation. I’m really looking forward to school at the Univ. of Vermont, and I owe you guys all the credit in the world.

With both of us working full time, we wanted to make sure that our inexperience with the college application process didn't affect our son's goals. Perkins and Murphy have far exceeded our expectations. From helping to find schools that matched our son's interests, resume building, essay tutorials, application submittal, scholarship searches, and financial counseling, they have been so knowledgeable and professional! Our son was accepted to his first-choice school! Now, it's our daughter's turn!
