So Tufts in encouraging Youtube video submissions as part of its application process.  Would Juhasz find this repulsive?

She certainly indicates her disdain for the way Youtube tends to minimize the benefits of extended talk and debate on any subject, and these student-produced videos don’t seem to be very in-depth.

But is Tufts really even calling for Youtube videos per se?  Maybe they are, but I doubt they care to be that specific: rather, I think they’re hoping potential applicants will post a linked video to the web, any linked video.  In this sense, whether it happens to appear on Youtube or not is a bit irrelevant to their goals.

Now, that still may mean Juhasz would find this kind of self-promotion useless or even distasteful.

Plus, this idea is a little outdated to begin with.
