You might have noticed, we are bombarded with technology! With the inclusion of technology in college applications, students are now afforded an opportunity to submit more than a traditional application. Students are now able to submit digital arts, photography, music, blogs, and even video! For some students, this can be incredibly important. These options allow them to show off their interests and highlight strengths that may not be visible in the traditional application.
There are even a few colleges that have a video application. Students are asked to make a video that answers one of the prompts. No need to write an application essay, just submit a video!
If they don’t have an interest in these alternatives or don’t have anything already created, no need to stress over another completely optional request, you can go the traditional route with a written essay!
