OCR Model Definitions

Preselect to Alternate to Open (we recommend the preselect model):

  • Candidates that you've marked as preselect can sign up first
  • Candidates that you've marked as alternates sign up second
  • The schedule will then open up any remaining interview slots to additional candidates that meet all of your specified requirements


  • Students that meet all of your qualifications/criteria sign up for interview times
  • No prior review of candidates materials or initiation are required
