Has your friend had a student admitted to this particular school (and if so, did her student also transfer)? Is she suggesting course descriptions because she found them helpful in getting her student a scholarship at this school? What all do they want in a portfolio--just artwork? For a transfer student with that many credits, I wouldn't think the high school classes would really "count" as far as getting a scholarship goes--but if you think they won't accept all of the credits, then maybe it's best to check with the school to see what they really want.
No, her kids were in a very different situation. They won't take all of his credits and don't take many outside credits, we know that going in, however, it will also prove that he can do college level work to have that many credits on his college transcript. The truth is, his portfolio is the #1 piece in this to make or break his acceptance. They care about academic ability, but they will clearly see he is capable with his transcript. I am not sure if my friend fully gets that. Her kids went to traditional colleges for traditional majors.
I emailed the guy who has been his advisor through the process and will see what he says.
