Where is the best place to get a passport style photo done? I am in Auburn, AL, so I'm guessing my options are limited. I may just have to make it myself. Any ideas?

What I did was use a digital camera and take my own pic, resize it, then print it out on a laser printer (not ideal, but it was all free!). If you have one of the newer inkjets with fancy paper, you won't even be able to tell it's not a real photograph unless you smudge it.

I knew I should have gone to a studio and gotten some glamor shots...

Medical schools get copies of your photo. That way if anyone is dumb enough to have someone else take the test for them, they get a pleasant surprise at their interview. :D

I personally used my high school senior year photographs that were touched up and what not.

I thought Medical Schools were sent the picture after you are accepted. They do this just in order to make sure that it was you that took the mcat.

med schools recieve photos in your secondary application. it is unrelated to your mcat photo. i just cut mine out of a pic i took in 11th grade. its a waste of money to get photos made.
