    I searched through the forums and it is recommended that applicants be dressed in a suit and a tie. I have already submitted this photo for a number of secondary applications because I was not aware of the above. Would this photo seem unprofessional?

    Any comments are appreciated!

      A head-and-shoulders photo in professional attire would be better in the future, but this photo won't hurt your application, don't worry about it. But I think for your own anonymity you should take the photo off SDN asap...

      Edit: Also, you're new to SDN, but a post like this should be under the general 'premed allo' forum.
