Art portfolio

<p>Im interested in studying art at Vassar but I don't have a really strong portfolio. I'm debating whether or not I should send in an art portfolio, it is an option they give on the supplement for the common app. On one hand, it could boost my chances to get into the school by showing a wider range of my interests. On the other hand, if my portfolio isn't amazing, I'm afraid it will decrease my chances of getting in if their art program is selective. Any suggestions??</p>

<p>or should i put it in for the "your space" area??
please help!</p>

<p>Do you plan to major in art? If you do plan to, I would say go for it. Unless you draw stick figures and call it "art", which I HIGHLY doubt, your portfolio will only add to your application. If art is only a casual interest, though, I don't know if I would, just because you probably wouldn't pursue it seriously in college then. I want to major in studio art and did visit/tour Vassar. Their art department is good, but by no means is it their biggest department nor "extremely selective". In the info session, the guy said that they have a lot of people apply for art majors without including a portfolio. </p>

<p>SO. I say go for it if you want to major/minor in studio art :)</p>

<p>thank you so much! that was extremely helpful!</p>
