Signature Page Picture Upload

<p>Is it considered a cop-out to copy and paste a digital image of something into a word doc and upload that into the box? I wanted to upload an image of a marimba, and I can say with confidence that my lack of artistic flair does it no justice whatsoever. Believe me, I tried.</p>

<p>No. Images from the internet are common. Try searching through some old posts in this forum for what other people have used.</p>

<p>As theForbes says, put anything that appeals to you. You can draw it, use an image from elsewhere, take a picture, make a design etc.</p>

<p>What exactly is the point of the rice box?</p>

<p>make your application more unique, give it some personality. I don't think it makes much of an impact on your admission though.</p>

<p>I asked them today while I was on the phone about something else. The rep said it doesn't affect your admission; a long time ago, it was added for a creative touch to your application and so people would sign the statement. It's just stuck since then.</p>

<p>We really need a floated FAQ thread on this forum that specifically addresses this question and the one about listing other universities to which you are applying.</p>

<p>A sticky thread would be good. </p>

<p>This just needs to be explained on the application.</p>

<p>Somehow I feel that no matter what they put on the application we'd still get worried students wondering if they could game the system somehow.</p>

<p>Touche.</p>

<p>It's like those threads that start with 'Is it cheating if..'. Most of the time, if you have to ask, it is.</p>

<p>So true.</p>

<p>As for the digital image thing, I used something off of Google Images. It's fine.</p>
