My daughter's portfolio day was overwhelming. It was about an hour drive and we arrived early. We thought 20 minutes early would give us enough time. Well, the line inside was so long they put us outside with big windows. So, not until you could see the other line go in and make new lines at all the tables with the colleges we were let in. It probably was another half hour waiting at one college before they looked at her portfolio. We were able to have a total of eight colleges look at her work. Most of all what she took away was a lot of positive input and she has to include perspective and a still life in her portfolio. She is now working on that so when she applies to these schools she is prepared. I am very proud of her. After 4 hours she remained very positive and receptive to anything the colleges said --good or bad. Above is a little peek of her work. I think she was influenced by Somerset Magazines. She loves to do a lot of collage.
