question for the layout of portfolio submission


I was wondering if anyone has worked in the admissions for graduate school. I am uploading my pdf portfolio file to my online application and I was wondering if it should be saved as spreads vs single pages. It says that it will viewed online and I am worried that if they are single pages the ones with full bleed will not work. Additionally, if they are spreads and then tried to make into spreads again they will be messed up.

How is it currently formatted? Full 11x17 seems popular. 

If you have portrait or landscape 8.5x11 pages you could combine them with a blank narrow strip between to give the same look as single pages but without risking incorrect formatting.

Majority of reviewers will be using laptops and/or screens with a 16:9 ratio.

For that reason most people work in spreads (combine two pages).

This is something you should have known and planned for months ago.

You aren't completely fucked if your content is good but your lack of preparation in very basic planning doesn't bode well for you in the future.
