Goucher College: Video Application a Hit

Last year, Goucher College made an unusual proposition. Prospective students could apply to the college with a simple two-minute video featuring the student explaining why he or she might be a good fit. No high school transcripts were required.

The preliminary results of the experiment are in. Back in September, Christopher Wild, Goucher admissions counselor, told Diverse that the college would consider the Goucher video app (GVA) a success if 25 to 40 students were admitted to the Towson, Maryland, college through it.
