I'm a homeschooled high school senior and I'm currently applying to SUNY Purchase, and I'd like some ideas and suggestions for my Graphic Design portfolio.

I've been homeschooled since Freshman year of High School. I basically stopped going to school so I could teach myself illustrator, learned it, and started making infographics. I now basically do full-time freelance infographic design, which I really enjoy.
I'm applying to SUNY Purchase, where a couple of my friends are going. I did pretty poorly on my ACTs, so I'm stressing a little bit. In a week or so they are having a portfolio day, and I'd love suggestions from the hivemind on things that would help me stand out. I have a rather large infographic design portfolio, but I've been getting feedback that I need to be diverse. I've also designed flyers, and I have a photoblog of documentary photography.
Thanks so much, I'd love to knock a little stress off the shoulders and get a better idea of what to do. Thanks so much!
