Application photo

I was just looking through some other threads and noticed that Georgetown actually had a place to put a photo on their application. Unfortunately, I didn't notice that on the online application and never even thought to send one in. I wish I had though, because it would have made my application more personal. Did everyone else who applied send a photo in?

    It's not required, so that means they can't hold it against you.

    I don't think there was a place on the online app for a photo.

    Yeah there was no place for it on the online app.

    I think you mean Columbia.

    here's the unofficial take on the photo:

    for models and disabled only.

    Otherwise you're playing with fire in that your admissions counselor might be like: "not my type"

    Ok, then, I guess its not that important.
    Swang: I wasn't confusing Georgetown with Columbia. I sent my photo on the Columbia app and I thought it was strange, as it was the only school I sent it to. That's why I was surprised to read somewhere on CC that on Georgetown's application (must have been the paper one) there was also a place for a picture.
    I guess if nobody who applied online sent a photo, they can't all be at that much of a disadvantage.
