What is Snapshot?

Snapshot is a short, one-way video interview. It is made up of three interview-style questions, with two minutes to respond to each. Although short, it offers programs an additional piece of information about yourself to support informed decisions, while giving you an opportunity to bring your personal statement to life. Depending on when programs review your Snapshot responses, it could help increase your chances of landing an interview spot!
