AP Portfolio 411

Situations are not immutable. On Friday I was given to understand that things are no longer as they were once understood to be. Here are three critical differences.

1. The College Board readers are paid (and expected) to consider the Commentary you write to accompany your portfolio, not only to refer to it in times of uncertainty.

2. Breadth is best displayed in a manner that looks well as a whole, on the screen.

3. The Concentration section is not seen as necessarily chronological, nor should it “start strong and end strong” (as a portfolio would for certain art schools).
