Verify Applicant Skills
“We thought that Vericant (Interviews) provided an excellent opportunity for our students to showcase their interpersonal skills, as well as for us to have a better understanding that the information that we were getting was authentic.”Adina BrooksAssociate Director, Graduate Admissions, Columbia University IEOR Program
"We find Vericant (Interviews) extremely valuable because we get to see not just the English skills of our applicants but also we can hear WHY they want to study in the areas they've chosen."Judith AaronFormer Vice President for Enrollment, Pratt Institute
"They (Vericant Interviews) provide a more detailed and well-rounded view of all of our applicants. We just don’t have the bandwidth and the ability to interview every single student and it would be unfair to only interview a select number."Greg DellorcoAssociate Director of Admissions, Northeastern University
"As much as we would love to sit down and interview every single applicant, we don’t have that ability...collaborating (with Vericant) gives us the ability to service more students."Jennifer M. MathewsFormer Director of International Admissions, Syracuse University
"Having an interview from Vericant is something that we look forward to because we are actually able to look at the student as they’re communicating and having that sort of personal touch to an application helps us with our decision making process."Jennifer SimonsFormer Director of International Recruitment, Northeastern University & Tufts University

"We have lot of students applying who are academically qualified, who have done well in school, who have strong test scores, who have strong college essays - the Interview is one more piece of information that gives us a strong sense of who the person is, not just an application, but a human being that's applying."Doug NevinsFormer Assistant Director of Admissions, Brandeis
"We've worked really hard to make sure that the partners we work with, like Vericant, are people we feel confident in — in the quality of the interview they're having, in the validity of the interview….we are not just comfortable with having anyone do it, but we have spent time to understand the partners that we are comfortable with and ask them to help us out…"Jennifer BlaskAssociate Director of International Admissions, University of Rochester
"We used to interview almost all of our applicants ourselves, and we found that it shifted our priorities in a way that we were not comfortable with where, by doing so many interviews, we were pressed for the time to do what we call a holistic review of the rest of the application."Matt JohnstonAssistant Director of Admissions, Clark University
"We discovered that students who do the Vericant Interview have better success rates at our university."Kathleen CrispAssistant Director for International Admissions, University of the Pacific
"We like Vericant's services because we love to see the students who are in the interviews themselves. Students are more much more than a test score and it's really hard to get a sense of how that student would be a great part of our community until we can see them."Aaron BaskoFormer Assistant Vice President for Enrollment Management, Salisbury University
