Hilary Larson

Admissions Adviser


B.A. Sweet Briar College


If you're landing on this page it's probably no accident. We have undoubtedly spoken on the phone and you'd like to put a face with a name. Believe me when I tell you how much I enjoy working with you and your child on the application process. It is my sincere pleasure to help you complete it successfully. 

After a 25-year career in start-ups and brand management, I am thrilled to call Exeter home. What gave rise to my seeking a place here in Admissions was the time I spent at LaunchX at MIT as a member of its board of entrepreneurs. There I worked with teams of high school students from all over the world as they navigated a month-long bootcamp to create a viable business concept and move it into something tangible and market-worthy. My role was mentoring these teams by vetting their ideas and business plans, offering guidance when necessary, and listening to the groups' final pitches as a fully-conceived business.

I am passionate about creating opportunity, and removing boundaries to progress. This is why Exeter is the ideal place for me. Every candidate who applies and every student who attends is assured of opportunity should they seek it. Nothing stands in their way.
