Your Interview: Tell Us Who You Are!
We want to get to know you better — and for you to get to know us, too. To achieve a great interview, come prepared to tell us about yourself, your academic and extracurricular interests, and your interest in Central College. You’ll be talking with a current Central student and professor, and the interview will last 20 minutes.
Your Essay: What Do You Think?
While you’re here, we’ll ask you to write an essay and provide a prompt. You don’t need to write anything ahead of time, and you will have 40 minutes to write the essay. You might find it helpful to read about other students’ experiences at Central. We hope you’ll use the essay as a chance to be creative and express your ideas!
Your Problem Solving and Logic Test: How Do You Think?
Our logic problem is designed for you to show your analytical thinking ability. You can review a sample logic problem online — this lets you know what to expect. You will have 40 minutes to complete this component.
