Goucher And Bennington Both Report Success With Highly Nontraditional Admissions Options

It turns out that there are students who want to apply to college based on a two-minute video. These applicants may be more likely than others to be non-white and women. But it’s also the case that, given the option, most potential students won’t apply that way.

At least that’s the early word from Goucher College, which this year decided to let students use that method to apply. Bennington College, which also introduced a non-conventional application system (in which students can design their own application portfolio) also reports early success with its new option.
