U Michigan has requested that I send them a picture. I have very few pictures with me in them, but I managed to dig up eight pictures. I want to post them and have a poll as to which one to send but I'm having trouble.

I tried posting a new thread with the intention of attaching a picture to eight separate posts, but my slow a$s computer/connection decided otherwise. I don't have a homepage to post them on.
Does anybody have any suggestions?

Go get a pair of passport pics made (look pretty, comb your hair, etc) then go to kinkos and copy them in the "Kodak Picturemaker" so you get as many as possible on one sheet of paper (they should still be around passport size). Cut one off and send it in as you need it. Don't send them pics from your vacation in Maine or nothing. --Trek

Personal (as in vacations) = not good. You want them to have a good look at your face (have it very clear) so when they talk about you later they remember who you are. You'll also have to send a pic with almost every secondary so get a bunch of pics now so you don't have to keep buying passport pics as they're expensive. --Trek

I don't think there's a rule against sending vacation/personal photos... but you run into 2 problems:

1) Like the other guy said, they need a clear look at your face
2) You need a lot of these photos... I think almost all schools ask for them.

I've been using passport photos... but I'm considering going to a studio to get nicer ones (not glossy.... just nice). You might consider that too. :)

Last year, when I applied, someone told me about CVS Pharmacy...you can get color passport photos taken there that are of decent quality, and you get like 16 photos for $7.99. That was by far the best deal I found for this...

You should look into it if you have a CVS near you, since you're going to need a bunch of photos for your applications. Most schools request a passport photo on their secondaries.

Thanks Oldman, but I guess I'm just going to send the generic passport photo like everyone suggested. I do appreciate the offer :)
