I posted this earlier but the thread messed up:

I thought the picture to send in for secondaries was just so they would make sure you were the person in the interview, and that it wasn't really important how you looked. I had a picture of me with my shirt off after I had been lifting weights so I printed it out because it is kind of cool looking and I wanted med schools to see the total package they would be getting. But then I saw on one of my secondaries that they want a "professional" looking picture. I guess my picture isn't exactly professional, but most schools don't specify. Do you think I messed up?

Nothing you can do now, lets hope the person who review your application is a horny female (or male).

:eek:

I guess given your basketball record it might be considered professional :laugh:

I really can't believe this though.... 4.00 GPA/39 MCAT/0% common sense? j/k

Sorry, if you really did this it's hillarious. Let us know how it goes and maybe we will try the same next time ;)

You'll probably be jacked enough to look better than 90% of people who are clothed completely, so don't worry. I agree with Hardy's opinion here, even if it was in jest.

that's funny. However they might realize that you have a Sun Atlantic Conference body (that is Mercer's conference right?), and from what I hear, yall aren't up to par with the real men in the Mountain West!

Ouch...Very true though, Mountain West is good ball. I'm glad everyone thinks this is funny, but I'm serious. It sounds like nobody thinks it's that big of a deal, though. I just can't believe I didn't think about the professionalism thing. I really do think that if a woman looks at my app I might have a better chance, so that's good.

hahaha..at least you've distinguished yourself from a sea of applications with professional photos. :laugh:

Maybe good body means rigorous workout schedule which shows that you're both disciplined and hardworking. I say they may be early indicators that you're going to be a fine doctor. (no pun intended). :p

Seriously, nothing you can do now. Just relax!!! :)

Also, what size photos are you guys sending in? I saw that Wash U wants a photo that is about passport size, but I hadn't heard that anywhere else. I actually printed my pics off as 8 X 10 and used them kind of as a cover sheet for my papers. I really wanted the ADCOMs to get a good feel for the total package. And I think that size is better if any of the ADCOM women want to frame the picture for their desk or to hang on a wall. I'm not so sure now though, maybe they want smaller size pics so it will fit in the file better? :confused:

I suppose it all depends on what you consider a profession. I'd just shrug it off and not make the same mistake in future apps. And expect a few odd looks from interviewers who review your file last minute.

I think I accidently may have sent a small picture blown up to fill a full page to Creighton. Whoops. I never heard back from them about an interview.

I wasn't really fully flexing, but you know how you kind of flex while trying to act like you aren't flexing so it just looks like you are cut like that? I was kind of like that, so my smile is kind of forced looking and uncomfortable, but overall I'd give my look a 9.4 out of 10.

I am just curious, why would you think to send an 8 X 10 photo? And are you gonna post the pic you did send for SDN already or not? :p

That is fantastic. I'm very familiar with the casual semi-flex manoeuver. Indeed, it's very tough to pull off with the right flex/smile ratio -- go for a little more of one and the other is always compromised in some way. I'm betting they will appreciate the effort though. I say kudos to you on a super ballsy move

If you're really worried about it maybe you can call the admissions office, explain the situation, and ask if you can send a replacement photo.

I think you're lounging in mediocrity. You should have either gone for the professional look, or you should have gone for the sex-symbol look. Straddling the fence with a feigned shirtless smile isn't going to show anyone the strength of your resolve. You need to send in a supplementary picture portfolio that proves you are the real deal. Maybe wearing chaps and a cowboy hat, playfully twirling a pistol, or in a firemans outfit carrying an axe. I might even try for the doctor scenario- that's you and a stethoscope- just a stethoscope. Your loins are prime, baby, there's no reason to hold back.

See what I mean about the smile though? It's almost a smile, but it's more of a focused, contemplative look that goes with my half-flex. I didn't want to break a full smile because I was afraid it would look too strained. Is everyone smiling in their photos, or just a serious look?

It would have helped if both of your arms were in the frame, rather the amputeed arm, for the "clean sleek lines" look. Did you shoot this pic yourself? Nice abs.

OMG, I can't believe that you really DID this...

That said, though, I don't think it will hurt you that much. At least your applcation will stand out from the crowd. If it were a swimsuit-calendar kind of photo that would be one thing but you don't look like some cheesy male model, just like an athlete. At first I was thinking you'd sent a "Mr. September" type photo to the adcoms and was wondering WHAT you were thinking! Really, though, this pic isn't that bad. Just be prepared to be asked about it at interviews...

But that said..............I'm female, straight, and think you have a nice body. Looks like that Bball and weight lifting has done you a lot of good. hahahahaha
