Swearing in Short Film for Portfolio?

The video I am interested in submitting for my film portfolio is about three high school girls. Do you think it would hurt my chances of being admitted if it contained the occasional swear? Nothing too controversial of course

    I won't think it would matter. (Unless, of course, gratuitous and annoying). You're assumed to be an adult.

    My DS didn't have any vulgarities in his portfolio film, but he did in youth film festival films and only got push back once from a festival aimed a younger kids, not teens. At most youth film festivals, some vulgarities are common.
