I know how everyone jokes about how med-students are ugly.... but as far as I've seen this is total BS. All the medical students I've meet have been either very attractive, attractive, or at least decently good-looking people. I've also never met a significantly over weight medical student. THis could be a coincidence some how... like maybe medical students are more disciplined and more perfectionist-oriented... and so they care more about their appearance. I'm not sure... but I was starting to wonder. So why do I care? Well, I was wondering if I should make a point to look nicer in my secondary photos. In the one photo I sent to NYU, I look pretty bad... I wasn't wearing make-up and it was a passport photo. So what do you guys think? Do looks play any role in the admissions process? Should we worry about looking good in our secondary photos?
