1. Candidate and Support Figure Interview
Each year, the Torch Scholars Committee selects 50 finalists to interview on campus at Northeastern in Boston in February. Torch Interview Day is a six hour day that includes an individual interview, a group interview, and a support figure interview. Nominate a student for the Torch Program.
2. Motivation and Personal Value Statements
Each Torch finalist must submit three essays about his or her motivation and personal value system.
3. Non-Cognitive Assessment
The assessment we use provides a systematic review of emotional, interpersonal, experiential, attitudinal, and motivational styles. Finalists also participate in a math assessment and simulated lectures. These provide us with yet another way of measuring fit for Torch and Northeastern beyond the standard admission measurements.
