I plan on sending out a application to a university for a degree in photography but I have a few questions about my portfolio first. Should I send a hard copy(in a actual portfolio case) or a digital copy(on cd)? Both are accepted but my real concern is if I send a hard copy will I get my portfolio back? Because I plan on buying a rather expensive portfolio case such as this: http://www.vistek.ca/details/details.aspx?WebCode=137147&CategoryID=PortfoliosAlbums. Or if I send a hard copy should I just buy a cheaper case?
