Ask a counselor: Furman University

Maggie Murphy, Furman University Office of Admission

Vanessa Infanzon with The Charlotte Observer conducts a Q&A with Furman University admission counselor Maggie Murphy in a special series, Carolina College Bound. The article is loaded with practical advice for helping students find the best fit for the place they’ll call home for the next four years. In it, Murphy suggests students do a little homework about the institution and prepare questions for their admission counselor including a list of “must-haves” or “nonegotiables.” She addresses financial aid and whether financial need or lack thereof affects admission decisions. Murphy, who counsels students from Minnesota, North Carolina (Charlotte Area), and Wisconsin, wraps up the piece with her thoughts on the most important reasons to consider when choosing a college home.
