Georgetown has a section on their application where you can record a one minute video and provide the youtbe link. No joke.


I think that's a fantastic idea. If I were between two people and I had a chance to watch a video of them, I'd do it. Looks go a long way. Good looking people are more confident and successful. By good looking, I don't necessarily mean super model. I'm just saying someone who takes care of their body, is well groomed (trimmed beard :), is more likely to be successful. Also, social skills could be portrayed in a video. We all know how many people end up at some of the most elite law schools who lack social skills. They end up bums in the profession.


Or SCOTUS clerks...

I've found that in Biglaw, people obsessed with taking care of their bodies often collapse under the stress quickly and provide poor team morale when they ask for salads for dinner at the end of a 14 hour work day.


This was obviously sarcastic, right :roll:

So the consensus was no? I managed several websites for a year and have included links on my resume. Should I take them off?
