Yes: If you want to fill in a hole or elaborate about something on your application.
Yes: If you want to highlight your personality.

No: If you said everything that needs to be said on your application.

  1. The Tufts application / YouTube video experiment was really cool, and I think it’s inevitable that applications will incorporate web communication into the process in the near future. Especially as an entire generation grows up wired, and are comfortable with the idea of communicating through video (Skype/ FaceTime).

    We (Active Interview) have already signed up a few colleges who are interested in leveraging video for their application process.

    Alexis, drop us a line… we’re in Cambridge, MA! sghael at activeinterview.com
