Prospective Students Using YouTube To Bolster Their College Applications
University applicants now fancy Youtube as a medium to showcase their talents to the admissions committees.
If you want to know how popular YouTube is among today's youth, you only have to look at this year's Tufts University applications. Almost 1000 applicants took the advantage of the option in their application to post a short video about themselves. This is besides the mandatory essays they have to write as part of the admission process.
The prospective students, in order to support their application, demonstrated their talents on video in a variety of styles. While video gives the applicants a further chance to show off their knowledge and different facets of their personalities, these videos have also created a fan following among YouTube users.
