Participants can join and leave this meeting as they please. In Home-Room, staff and student ambassadors will present about admissions/portfolio requirements and answer questions. Simultaneously, the reviewers will have separately scheduled zoom meetings (signup below) with participants one-on-one. Throughout the event, participants will jump between Home-Room and portfolio review sessions.
