A student’s digital portfolio, a showcase for all that you have accomplished in high school and revealing your interests and soft skills, is one way to enhance your profile for admission to selective universities.
Colleges and universities do pay attention to these factors, conducting a holistic review of each applicant. Hence, having a digital portfolio that emphasizes non-cognitive strengths, including a student’s character and authenticity, can help distinguish a student. Demonstrating evidence of the above through a digital portfolio that is comprehensive, highlighting the student’s strengths, skills, activities, and engagements with text, graphics, colorful images, and videos is a good way to showcase what the student brings to the table. This visual presentation of your qualifications can make the difference between getting into your dream university or not.
