Applying to college can be overwhelming, and maybe a bit confusing. Our programming gives high school seniors a little extra help in navigating the college admissions process.
What Were They Thinking?
The application process can be a fraught and complicated process — what with all the details, deadlines and decisions. How many schools should you apply to? How do you choose between Early Decision, Early Action, and Regular Decision? This two-part miniseries, featuring current Holy Cross students and Admission staff, will reveal what our students were thinking when they applied, and what we were thinking when we admitted them.

What were we thinking when we chose to admit these students? What are we thinking as we prepare to admit the next class of Crusaders? Current students and Admission staff will shed light on decision-making in the application process. Airs Wednesday, Nov. 10 at 7 p.m. ET.
