My daughter wants to study graphic design and George Mason is one of her top choices. She met some of the faculty and she thinks it is a good match. I’m trying to gather information before she applies so that she is prepared. I’m a little confused about the freshman portfolio review.
The school website strongly advises freshmen applicants to submit a portfolio for review for concurrent consideration with their university application. If it’s optional, I’m curious how it’s used. (It can’t be the basis of admission if it’s optional.) I called the school and they said it was to grant or deny admission to the school of arts but the person on the phone said she was new and not sure. Someone else at the school said it was used to recommend or place students in the BA or BFA Arts program.
Can someone provide informational on how the freshmen portfolio review is used? Any suggestions and information about the graphic design program would also be appreciated.
