I'm hoping that I can get some help. I am applying to an MLA program and need to prepare a portfolio. The program doesn't state specific guidelines for submission. I don't have a background in design but I have taken one freehand drawing course and a few courses in GIS and cartography. I'm not sure what would be the best thing to submit. It was suggested by a few faculty that I submit a writing sample and another faculty suggested a drawing. I'm not savvy with the portfolio so I have no idea what that really means. So, here are my questions. How is the portfolio submitted? Does it have to a be bound or in some kind of folder? What about oversize drawings? I also have done some photography. Is that something that might be included? Please, please if you have any advice for me, I would greatly appreciate it!!!!
