What does your stomach do when I mention the words “college essay?” Tie up in panicky knots? Flip over in anticipation? Growl with excitement? However you feel about writing your essay, the time has come to get serious about it.
In addition to the Common Application essay, Holy Cross has a required short (250-word max) response question. Hey, we like dessert! The short answer question is “What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?” We hope you’ll use your 250 words to share a piece of advice that has resonated with you and explain why. Maybe we’ll even take your advice!
“It’s not all about you.”“Make your own luck.”“You have to be a friend to have a friend.”
“Listen first.”“It’s nice to be important, but it’s more important to be nice.”“Trust your instincts.”
