Should I submit a portfolio to both RISD and Brown?  Does it need to be the same portfolio?

You are not required to submit the arts supplement for the Brown Admissions application, though it is encouraged.  If you do submit your portfolio to Brown, it will be reviewed as part of your admissions material and be factored into the admissions decision.  Whereas, the BRDD supplemental essay must be the same essay submitted to both Brown and RISD, the portfolio submitted to Brown does not need to contain the same works as the portfolio submitted to RISD.
