SMCM Video Application

Okay so you know how starting a year ago or so St. Mary's became one of like 5 colleges to accept video applications as opposed to regular ones?  A friend sent me this youtube video of some kid who just applied.


Here's a link to the original video.  This guy is great!!  He raps about his achievements while a violin (which he played earlier in the video) lays the beat.  Seems to be a real solid student, it really takes a lot of balls to send in a video application I feel.  Also he loves Lost!

Anyway watch the video...maybe we will see him next year?  (I mean he's definitely getting accepted I feel, it's just his decision now).

  1. We probably get about 30 video essays a year, and this has been one of our favorites thus far! If you search on youtube for "st. mary's application video" there are some other great ones out there from this year and from years past! -Tricia

  6. Are we really one of only five schools to accept video essays? That's so... progressive. I'm impressed. Also, by decree of the biggest smcmlol blog fan in the world (me), accept this kid.

  9. his essay was really cool. I'm a freshman at st mary's this year and my essay was a video too. It's a really cool option to have rather than the same old essay questions, especially because of the vague prompt given by st mary's "St. Mary's College is casting for the incoming class... Selection of this option will stand as your college essay. Consider your audience."
