After I watched this while I was in art school I really learned what I should put in my portfolio. What I had done wrong was I put work in there that I was not proud of. Also I have been doing so many projects that will allow me to have other work that is not from school. Because honestly if you show your portfolio of your school work it just shows that you can do what the teacher says instead of making up your own projects. And self initiated projects will allow you to learn what the constraints, limitation are of a project and how to design within those.
