    So the MCAT admissions ticket needs a current photo... do you guys think it's ok to take a pic with a digital camera, print it off, and paste it to the ticket? Or does it need to be from film?

    Digital cameras are fine. I actually used a digital camera for the secondary applications because it was a lot cheaper making copies of it on my color printer. I had no problem.

    THANK YOU daveswafford for posting that up.

    I would have never thought of printing a photo and gluing it on the ticket. I was planning to get some passport size pictures at walmart.

    gee, I feel relief. saved some cash. :horns:

    Last year I took a digital picture of myself sitting in a chair, printed it out and cut it to size to attach it to the ticket.

    Yeah I also did the digital camera thing. I just cropped it in photoshop and printed that baby out. Made mass copies for my secondaries as well. :)

    Hey dave,

    I actually took a polaroid the first time I took the MCAT and cut it to fit in the square. I did use a digital camera the other time and it was fine. As long as you look similiar to your drivers license.

    I also did the same thing for my secondaries as well. It just helps them put a face with the application. If you have more questions regarding the MCAT or applications, just PM me.

    Aaron

    This is a goofy story but it is related to the MCAT photo:

    I met an aquaintance before the MCAT started and they wanted me to see their photo:confused: . it looked like.... a snapshot on a sofa.

    They had the photo taken at some bar and cropped out of the photo was their hand holding the drink.

    (Why I hear these stories from people I will never know)

    They did it as a stress release or something...:(

    Oh well, just don't waste any money your photo.
