Two months ago I wrote a blog about the importance of the interview. Many of you got the message. You probably got the same message if you attended an information session on campus or if you met a Holy Cross representative at your school this fall. You nodded, you understood, you made a mental note — and then you missed the deadline. Or you called our office recently and found out that we are booked solid through the end of the month. What now? Remember not just that we told you to have an interview, but what we said about why. We want to know you, and our full schedule does not change that fact. But unfortunately, that fact does not change our full schedule. So you may not be able to have an interview after all, but you can still help us to know you better. Some students choose to submit a letter or e-mail “filling in the blanks” that may exist in the absence of an interview. Such letters can provide additional information about accomplishments, interests and passions. They can answer some of the questions an interviewer might ask.
If you write it, we’ll read it. So start filling in those blanks.
