Should I add a video link at the end of my PS?

Postby Catherinelo365 » Mon Dec 09, 2013 3:17 am

Hey, this may be a stupid question but my personal statement is about how I overcame many difficulties and made my first short film during my freshman year of college. Should I paste the link of my 5-min short film at the end of my PS?
It's a comedy film so I hope the admission people can watch it and laugh and remember me. Is that a really stupid idea?

Thank you!

Read a thread like this once and the general agreement was not to.

nope.

To my knowledge most apps are still printed and judged on paper, where you know, you can't click things.

I'll not do that then. :)

I don't think hyper linking is an issue. However, you wouldn't want to show poor judgment through gimmickry.
