Is it really that much of a hassle just to take another photo and use that? Honestly? Did we need to start a new topic for this?
It seems that with all the work of actually getting through pre-med, and the work being looked forward to in medical school, the burden of taking a single picture and having it printed seems... trivial.
I gained 50lbs over the last year. I wouldn't want med schools using the new pic as my student ID. It's enough that others have to look at my fat self; do I need to too?
Can you just tape that picture on your face during your medical school interview?
If not, then that's a crappy argument for the OP.
I would have thought it wasn't worthy of a thread as well, until I read all this stuff advising people to re-take photos for reapplication.Is it really that much of a hassle just to take another photo and use that? Honestly? Did we need to start a new topic for this?
