    Do the interview. Even if you aren't sure about whether or not you're applying or if you're doing Early Decision or Regular, do it. Also, keep in contact with your admissions counselor or any counselor in general. They keep all your e mails on file and will review them as part of the application process. Another thing is visit the school. Although you are in Worcester and it may not be the nicest area to live in, being on The Hill makes you feel as if you're in another world and makes you feel safe and not like you are in a city. It is also key to remember that their academics are very well known and rigorous which means that when you are applying they take your first quarter grades and what classes you are taking into account and have the heaviest weigh in the academics portion of your application. Lastly, if you do not feel like your SAT scores are up to par, e mail your Holy Cross counselor and ask them for advice, they will help you, they want to have you here. If you are more than 100 off of their median range, about a 1950, I suggest you don't submit them. If your over, do of course and if you're in between do it but it won't neither help nor hurt you. read full review

    One thing that I took advantage of what taking out vouchers for books. I wasn't as well off financially as most students at HC, so I had to become innovative when it came to paying for books every semester. I found that buying used books online wasn't always worth it because the shipping costs would just make the cost of the book the same as the book store. So what I did was pay for the books I could afford and for the rest I requested a book voucher. A book voucher is kind of like a small interest free loan you take out pay for your books. You can choose to pay for your book voucher throughout the course of the semester if you have a job on campus. I had $10 or $20 dollars deducted from my pay check each week in order to pay back the book loan. I'd usually be done paying for everything after 2 months or so. It worked for me because I felt good knowing that I had everything I needed at the start of the semester and could pay for it without stressing out or scrambling for money. (***disclaimer: not sure if everyone qualifies for this, so you'd have to check with financial aid and payroll) read full review
