I've applied to 17 places. I know that's way too many considering I have a pretty decent application, but you never know. Anyways, most schools either require or say sending the photo is optional. If its optional, then I want to send it. I was wondering what size photo i need to send. I've seen 2inch by 2 inch passport size, is that the preferred size? In addition, this is going to cost me more than I expected. It costs like 8 bucks at kinkos to get 2 photos that are 2 in x 2 in. Does anyone have a cheaper alternative?
