How big a role does your digital footprint play when it comes to selection into the most competitive colleges (Ivies)?

Do you need to have an extensive digital footprint (YouTube channels, blogs, websites, etc..) in order to be selected into the best colleges?

No. They can absolutely be an important part of an applicant's activities list depending on their focus and goals, but you don't *need* them by any means.

I do participate in a lot of clubs and teams and I also have a few self-driven activities. Do I need some sort of website, blog or YouTube channel in order to increase my chances at selective colleges?

no like @jcdenton said... I know plenty of people who've gotten into schools like Harvey Mudd, Berkeley, Columbia who have zero digital footprint.
