Hope Murtaugh's Biography

Hope's passion is helping high school students and their families navigate the college search process in order to find and attend the school that best fits their needs and interests. Her experience includes work in all dimensions of the college admissions process. As an Assistant Director of Admission at Princeton University, she learned the university's view of the process from Fred Hargadon, one of the most respected deans in the world of college admissions. Responsible for recruiting in the Southeast, Hope learned what makes students stand out in the global applicant pool at highly selective universities. Hope's subsequent years in the college counseling office at Charlotte Country Day School gave her experience from the high school side of the college admission process, where she worked in particular with students on essay composition. As the mother of two current college students, she also knows personally the challenges that selecting and applying to college can pose to family dynamics, and the value of an objective third party at this time in a family's life. Hope graduated from Princeton University in 1986, with a degree in English.
