Looks like more and more colleges and universities (such as George Mason) are accepting videos in their recruiting process. They’re more work for candidates — and possibly more painful for the admissions committee — but some students prefer them.
High school senior David Dorsey of New Jersey tells the Washington Post:
“I’m applying to seven schools, and I feel like I’ve written the same essay seven times,” said Dorsey, 18, who plans to study history and political science. “I thought this was a way to be different. I think my personality – well, anyone’s personality – is better expressed on video.”
Or music, if you watch the video above.
