yeah they want both a photo and the essay. There were other questions that didn't relate to me on there: question about reapplication; question about relatives at AMC....

Actually I just received Albany's Secondary today. Here are the essay questions:

1. Describe Yourself (1,000 character limit)

2. If selected for an interview, what one life experience would you most like to talk about? (160 Character Limit)

3. If your school has a Premedical Committee but you are not using that service, please indicate why? ( 1,000 Character Limit)

I like the describe yourself question, gives you a chance to talk about who you are, vs. just rambling about experiences. :)

I also like the "describe yourself" question. But the character limit is pretty stingy (1000 characters, ~eleven lines), and I can't help shake the feeling that I'm taking out a personal ad: "I like witty conversation, pina coladas, and walks in the rain." Haha, do you think that would go over well with the admissions people? :laugh:
