So I'm new to this, I'm hoping someone can help! I am graduating in the spring and my undergrad will finally come to a close. I'm a painting major and I had a dream of getting my masters, then pursuing a university teaching job. Sadly life has been no stranger to me, getting in the way, along with my own choices, that have left my overall GPA at a 2.2. Most professors have told me not to worry, that " they'll look at my portfolio, they'll consider me off of that more than my GPA". I'm sure that's true and part of me thinks that I shouldn't worry too much because my portfolio shows a much better version of myself, the person my GPA cant. However, I can't help but worry. Does anyone know any information that could help me, ease my mind? any schools that with a great portfolio I could stand a chance at? or just any advice at all.1 replies
