The sample size of those who rate (review) the college is much smaller than the total number of reviews. Niche says there are 502 reviews of Holy Cross, but that is the aggregate total of responses to individual parts of the survey.
For example, if the survey has 10 parts, and a survey respondent individually rated all 10 parts, Niche counts that as 10 reviews, not one. Thus the actual number of individuals who completed the survey form over the past 7-8 years is very likely fewer than 100.
There were 16 "terrible" ratings of Holy Cross, of which 7 rated student life as terrible 4 rated dorms as terrible 3 rated campus life as terrible
If I was so inclined, and I used either incognito mode or a dynamic ISP, I could stealthily and profitably spend a few afternoons devaluing BC, --simply by filling out surveys on BC with complaints, gripes, critical observations, etc.
