Baylor University Switches to Kira Talent to Create a More Effective and Fair Admissions Process
Several years ago, Baylor University introduced a pre-recorded video interviewing into their admissions process for their innovative hybrid Doctorate of Physical Therapy (DPT) program. Unfortunately, the clunky process only made for more work.
Recently, however, Baylor turned to Kira’s all-in-one platform. Its timed-video and timed-written responses greatly helped the admissions team, thus ensuring a more authentic view of the verbal and written communication skills of each applicant. Baylor also implemented other features of Kira making the evaluation of applicants more accurate and consistent.
“Before, we had a phenomenal program and an average admissions process,” shared Casey Unverzagt, Director of Admissions. “Now, we have a phenomenal program and a phenomenal admissions process. Kira not only builds an expectation for the program, but it gives us functionality that makes our jobs 10x easier.”
