Son will be applying to Syracuse, MICA, Pratt, and maybe a couple more schools that require submitting a portfolio. He will likely need some merit money to be able to afford the $40K+ tutition at these schools, so he will be submitting his portfolio on CD or slides for review with his application.
We will be visiting these schools in the fall and could throw a portfolio together for review then, or wait until my son has completed a portfolio development class at the local CC and just submit his portfolio with his application materials.
Any thoughts on the best approach? Is there a big advantage in submitting your portfolio in person?
