Accuracy of Net Price Calculator?

Can anyone report on the accuracy of Holy Cross's NPC? The Admissions rep at open house claimed it would be spot on but we've heard otherwise from a family friend.

We have an uncomplicated financial picture -- 401k/IRA, home equity, salary-based income, 529 savings for college, and multiple kids (one in college, one HS senior, two younger). The NPC predicts our expected cost of about 38k, including a student loan and work study. This amount is almost identical to the funds we've budgeted so we'd like to let our rising freshman apply ED, but are reconsidering based on our friend's experience.

Thanks for any and all responses.
