    Interviewing at a school soon and have the option of getting a tie and/or pair of socks with the school’s colors and logo. I’m leaning towards socks, but would like to hear thoughts on tie. I would only wear one or the other. Any help is appreciated.

    Women Interview Attire - Bags!

    Hello all! I have been struggling so hard to find the perfect interview bag. During my med school interviews, I carried around a heavy leather Tumi bag that became really cumbersome during the tour portion of the interview (especially if it was hot outside, bleh). I vowed not to do this for my...

    SOS Interview Apparel Help Needed ASAP

    My first interview is on Friday and I fly out for it tomorrow. I had heard that people normally wear suits to the interview, so I put on my navy suit today. I've been hitting the gym a lot for the past couple years since I got that suit and my shoulders and chest are too big for it now. All I...

    Women Interview Attire - Dress?

    All of my friends currently in medical school, including my top choice school, say that wearing a business professional dress is perfectly suitable. However, it seems like everyone on SDN is saying a pant suit or skirt suit with a blazer is mandatory for women. Personally, I don't feel very...

    Interview Attire - Male

    I've read much about Professional School interview attires here on SDN. Though the general consensus is to go for a conservative look, I think it really won't matter that much as long as I don't go for something crazy. My question is for those of you with experience in professional...

    Better than Chocolate?

    Quick survey for my fellow premeds on the interview trail. Let me set the scene: You woke up early in the morning, and went through the awkward choreography of putting on your "conservative applicant" costume: dress pants/dress skirt, formal top, blazer, pantyhose/dress socks, uncomfortable...

    Interview Attire for Women: Camel suit

    Hi, I been buying some suits for my interview. I have a really hard time finding some that fit me because I have a petite frame but not a petite height. So most suits look unflattering on me. I do have an old suit that fits. But I was unsure about it because it may be too "fashionable." I heard...

    Women's Interview attire question!

    This is a random question, but something that I really would like an answer to. Do we (women) need to keep the buttons closed for the suit jacket during interviews? My jacket that I got a few years ago still fits me great, but shows my waist line when I button it up.. any ideas?

    Apple watch at interview

    I'm planning on not bringing my phone with me to my interviews, but I was going to get the new apple and bring that instead. Do you think having the apple watch during an interview might look unprofessional or am I overthinking it? I was just wondering since it's pretty much like another phone...

    Facial hair on portrait and interviews

    Warning, this question might seem kind of vapid. So we have to include a picture of ourselves with most secondaries. Would it be a bad idea to keep my facial hair for this picture? This question applies to interviews too, probably more so actually. I'm an asian guy (mid 20s) with a short...

    How much of a factor is attractiveness in admission? [Conspiracy]

    I've been looking at class photos from some schools and I have this growing paranoia that, when all else is near-equal, there's a "beauty pageant" component in the AdCom's decisions; either subconscious bias, or voluntary to maintain the school's appearance. "I have a 3.98 GPA, 524 MCAT with...

    Interview Attire

    For interviews what is your go to shirt color? I have a navy suit but cannot decide between a traditional light blue shirt or light pink and plaid shirt. I know for most job interviews they recommend a more classic look but I was thinking the pink would show a little more personality despite not...

    Drooling over a dress suit. Is the color too bright for interviews?

    Hey there, I wanted to take advantage of the Nordstrom anniversary sale to purchase my interview suit. I usually never spend more on ~$10-30 on any clothing item, so this will be an opportunity to splurge! I was drawn to this dress suit (see below), but was worried that the color/fabric might...
