Hi, I'm a grade 11 high school student planning to attend the 2011 NPD. I know that they give out early admissions and/or scholarships to acceptable portfolios from grade 12's, but do they give that to grade 11's as well? Did this happen to anyone before? Also, if anyone went to a past NPD- how many grade 11 students were there compared to grade 12's?
A couple more: How do you present your portfolio? Do you tell them your name, grade, etc. first? And when you're talking about a piece, what kind of things do they want to hear? So basically- once you get to their table, what do you do?
