    Hi everyone,

    I just printed off a bunch of copies of my picture to send to schools but now realize that most of the schools I have applied to don't seem to require one. Has anyone else noticed this? I don't know if anyone is interested, but I think it might be nice to make a list of schools that require or recommend that a photo be submitted. Here are the ones I know of:

    BU
    Columbia
    Michigan
    Tufts
    WashU

    If people wanted to add to this list that would be great.

    Cheers

    I don't remember Michigan asking for one. Do they do that after asking for interview?

    I received the secondary along with an interview invite, and on the main page when I log into my secondary there is a checklist and one of the items is photo - you are supposed to e-mail it in jpeg format to an address they give.

    After you get an interview you are supposed to e-mail a picture as an attachment.

    I'm still waiting for a logical explanation why they can't request a photo once you make it to the interview stage. Do they really want a bunch of photos on file of the 90% they don't interview?

    for the purposes of this thread, i think it may be useful to distinguish photo hardcopies from electronic copies:


    BU
    Case Western University*
    Columbia
    GWU
    St. Louis University
    Miami
    Michigan
    Tufts
    University of Missouri- Columbia

    Haha, I guess I can't argue with that. The other night I was listening to Pantera's Official Live: 101 Proof, having a few beers, and trying to write an essay about "a non-academic experience that impacted my decision to go into medicine." I try to de-nerdify the process, but it's pretty hard.
