Liz Davis

"My high school college and career counselor was incredibly supportive of the process of discovery and application. She wasn't pushy about where a person should apply to school, but she made sure that I was hearing about many different institutions—for me, that was very helpful so that I could avoid getting tunnel vision and only thinking about schools that I'd heard of."
