    I (I am male) personally like to bring a fancy leather portfolio with my school's insignia on it. I am sure you could buy one from your school for under $50. I have also seen people who have had to travel bring their entire suitcase or whatever and leave it with admissions. A few guys bring those bags that have straps, I guess that they are called messenger bags. I also saw one kid with a jansport backpack (I would not advise that though).

    I'm not a guy, but arsh mentioned a great idea about the leather portfolio. A black messenger bag would also be a great accessory to have in your possession while you're interviewing (to hold your personal copy of your application, a notepad for taking down names for thank-you letters, and stuff like that). Leather always looks nice, but the messenger bag doesn't necessarily have to be leather (as long as it's black). But I will say this--I've yet to see male interviewees at my undergrad's med school carry anything with them (so it's totally acceptable to come empty-handed, I suppose).

  6. This is a good thread, as my first interview is this Thursday.

    So should I bring the leather portfolio or should I come empty handed?

    I would go with the leather portfolio since you said you don't wanna go empty handed. They will give you a folder but there probably won't be much blank paper in there to write stuff down (or doodle) Good luck!
