    Hi,

    I was looking at the NYU application and I think it requested a photo. Do other schools also request photos if you get secondaries? Where could I go to get wallet/passport-type photos for cheap? (passport photos are like $10 for 2). I went to a camera store and they said they'd charge $50 for 30 pictures....crazy.

    Yes and make sure they are cheap.

    :) I would recommend getting a set of passport photos and taking those to your neighborhood _____ (wherever they have a Kodak picturemaker) to get sheet copies made.

    I think that the TMDSAS is a little different than the AMCAS in the photo department, so my advice may not be helpful. We have to provide one picture per school plus one for the service themselves, so I went to a "Family Photo" and just had head shots done. They took a couple different poses and then I bought the cheapest package they head - 5 sheets of pictures for $25. That's a total of 40 wallets, which is what size they need. (2"x3")

    Sears and other places like that do the same thing and have pretty cheap packages.

    I just took some normal photos of me with the girlfriend and cut my head out in the size they were wanting.

    go to walgreen's, get their 8 dollar passport pics, then go to kinko's (or somewhere like that) and get a whole sheet made, depending on how many schools you're planning on applying to

    I had my mom take passport-type pics of me with her digital camera, copied the best one onto a Word doc (I was able to fit ~16/page) and then printed them off on photo-quality paper. It saved me tons of $$ because all of my secondaries required a pic, plus I could make sure it didn't look like a mug shot like my real passport photo. I also typed my name, SSN and AMCAS ID # directly onto each photo. They ended up looking pretty nice, you couldn't even tell (other than the typing) that I had done it on a computer.
