The portfolio usually requires 12 to 20 works, including self-portraits, still lifes, landscapes, human figures, interior drawings, and more.

Usually, slides or CDs are to be submitted and interviewed.

Therefore, it is also necessary to prepare yourself to speak confidently about your work.

Usually, the portfolio is closed from November to January 10 and varies slightly from school to school.

Among Ivy League schools, Yale, Brown, Cornell, Dartmouth, Columbia, Smith College, and New York are due on December 30 and January 1. Because of the holiday season, it is important to prepare a portfolio 10 days in advance with careful review and assessment by each school.

Since most application deadlines and portfolio deadlines for prestigious schools are the same days, the careful preparation of labeling titles of each work is necessary.
