Portfolio Approach to College Applications

The Portfolio Approach to College Applications

Some college-bound students can improve results (and reduce stress) by taking the portfolio approach to college applications. The portfolio approach means including substantial, on-point, original work as a central component of a college application. This approach works well for students interested in engineering, computer science, performing arts, visual arts, creative writing, or other disciplines that produce original work. The odds of finding the right fit can be dramatically higher when a school sees an applicant's original work.

Michael Megliola will lead a 3-morning seminar on engaging in college applications using the portfolio approach. Michael has been actively involved in college admissions for several years, as an alumni interviewer for an Ivy-League university. Michael's oldest son (Anthony) will be attending Tisch School of the Arts at NYU, and his youngest (Leo) started assembling his engineering portfolio last year -- in seventh grade -- at Berwick Academy. Using recent, real-life examples, Michael will share how the portfolio approach can elevate the dialogue between an applicant and an admissions department.

The seminar will meet on three consecutive Tuesday mornings from 8:30-10:00 am.

August 8 - Real-life case studies
August 15 - Fitting the pieces together: A portfolio & a common application
August 22 - What do I do next?

The seminar is open to parents and students. Suggested donation is $250 per family; all proceeds benefit New Hampshire Theatre Project.
