Quick question.. I'm writing my essay about my families "pos" car (the thing is godawful) and how i have grown from being so embarrased by it to not caring what people thing.. i even drive it.. do you think i shoudl include a picture at the end of my essay of the car or no..i'm thinking it may be unique

No. I know it's cliche, but the essay is about you, not the car.

If you're ugly, you might get rejected because of that picture.

That is a great essay topic. Include it!

If you have time, you should have someone take a picture of you next to the car. That would be perfect.

neona- cmon seriously no one is going to get rejected on basis of looks. but looks can tell some things about your personality and your attitude toward life (like depending on your expression). it'll never be enough to reject to you however. itll just add to the "whole" picture.

slc bug i was just thinking the same thing! ha

On a side note, university of miami acutally asks each applicant to send in a picture of themself.. found that interesting

And in response to the rejected if ulgy post.. by no means am i perfectly satisfied with my looks but i don't think im in a position to be turned down for being ugly ha.. i used to do modeling for some small time magazines

..Thanks a lot though guys for the input.. i think i'm going to go with the picture
