Default Has anyone's form been rejected because of the passport photo?

I took a passport photo, american 2 inches by 2 inches, but the thing is that in the country where i live, your face should take about 50% of the photo leaving the rest for your shoulders. Now i read that the passport photo should take at least 80%. Can my form be rejected because of this?

No.......I don't think it matters..........


But make sure....

Seal covers half photograph and half form paper and is visible.

Medical school official signs are clear..

your sign are clear

and have the details written in neat writing

Plus have the form sealed by your med school, in your presence aND PUT

A med school stamp in the seal

and mail.....it..........

make sure the stamp used for putting on photo is official stamp that is registered with ECFMG..........

and send it..........

mine got rejected 3 times..............

I also had that problem.My college staff informed me that ecfmg sent back application of 2 students for this photo problem. So I am going to give 2 by 2 with 80% face.
