Photo with Application?

Is it common practice to include a photo with your application? What are the benefits of it? What kind of picture? What size? Did you do it? Should I do it?

<p>Can i assume you mean a picture of yourself and not as in an art portfolio for photography?</p>

<p>Right- Brown asks for one, but I don't know if it's standard practice to send one to all colleges.</p>

<p>It used to be standard practice -- all apps had a little square for you to include a photo. Now, in our era of political correctness, they took the photo spot away because some were "concerned" it might encourace racial profiling or bias. </p>

<p>Now, you may send a photo if you like, it's just not...required or even suggested. I'm sending my senior pic with all my apps. Just because...I feel like it. Some schools do ask you to do that so the application process is more personal. </p>

<p>Bottom line: go ahead and include a pic if you wish.</p>

<p>I am including a picture of myself because I am hot stuff =)</p>

<p>Anyone else have experience or an opinion on this?</p>
