    Wear the button up/tie or just a tshirt? Smile/no smile? Silly questions, but med schools can be superficial, so I thought I'd ask.

  3. Shirt and tie certainly wouldn't hurt, and just don't smile like an idiot, and you'll be fine.

    shirt with a collar minimum. i'd recommend a shirt/tie/jacket just to impress, and a natural and convincing smile -- specifically, don't look goofy and don't look like you just got convicted of anything.

    I just cropped a picture of mine off of photoshop. I wasn't wearing a tie or collared shirt. Will this count against me?

    I wonder what they'd think if you included a mug shot type picture. ;) :D

    Mine is pretty much a mug shot. White background, no smile. I figured the main purpose was identification and there was a greater than 50% change I would not be smiling when they were doing that.
