Do you accept application videos?

Is this question on your list of things to ask on a college visit? Maybe it should be.

It's not uncommon for students to voluntarily submit videos to supplement their admissions application portfolio in an attempt put a stamp on their person brand as a college applicant, but in the last year at least two schools are encouraging the submission of application or college essay videos.

You can read the buzz below and even watch some the videos on YouTube:

What do you think? Good idea? Bad idea? Do you see this as a trend that more schools will adopt? Is this something you would be willing to submit with your admission application? Please post your comments below. We'd love to know what you think.

    My 51-year-old self readily creates videos for corporate and non-profit purposes.

    Would my 17-year-old self have been ready to do so? To apply to the college of my dreams, I would have mustered the wherewithal, but I think it would have been hard. Kudos to students who rally to the challenge!
