Challenging and Comprehensive College Preparation

Applicants from Mainland China

Because Cranbrook seeks the best candidates, interviews are an important part of our admission process.  We have partnered with Vericant, a company that will conduct the required interview and short writing samples with our applicants in Mainland China.  Vericant does not evaluate candidates but, instead, posts the interviews and writing samples online for our admission officers to review.  The Vericant interview will serve as the official interview for applying to Cranbrook.  With Vericant working on our behalf, Cranbrook admission officers will no longer offer individual interviews via Skype or in-person for applicants from Mainland China.

Please note that your application fee does not include the Vericant interview costs. To learn more about Vericant and to schedule an interview, please visit
