The Basics

Essay Responses

Video Responses

It's time for the video portion of the application. Here's a couple helpful hints

1) Make sure you are in a quiet room with good lighting

2) We're not looking for fancy editing and flashy filmmaking. We want to get a sense of your communication skills.

3) Make sure both the camera and microphone icon are green before you start recording.

4) Let the video finish processing before moving on to the next step.

5) Once you finish recording you can watch your video. If you don't like it, you can press re-do. Do this as many times as you like till you're happy but once you submit your application you won't be able to go back and edit your video.
