Sick of College Essays? Apply to Tufts via YouTube

Tufts University is making a buzz from its new admissions option. Instead of writing yet another essay (Tufts requires quite a few), applicants were given the option of sending a 1 minute YouTube video.

More than 1,000 applicants took the challenge. This practice may revolutionize admissions. I wonder how many other colleges will offer this option next year?

Take a look at this article from the The Boston Globe.  You can also see this article from the New York Times.  And if you want to see some of the videos, just hit YouTube an go for Tufts Admissions. You’ll find bazillions.  See which ones impress you!
