Where Kira fits in the law and humanities admissions process

Law and humanities programs were fairly evenly dispersed when it came to where they used Kira in their admissions processes in 2022, with equal amounts using an assessment to pre-screen applicants and to make final admissions selections.

The unifying point for these schools was in how many applicants there were able to efficiently assess. 71% of law and humanities programs invited all applicants to complete an assessment or interview in Kira Talent. By gaining deeper insights across their applicant pool without overwhelming staff and faculty, Kira is helping schools identify more best-fit applicants for admissions offers.
