    non-Omores peeps,
    why are you people so nosy? now get outta here and mind your own business! :D

    Please I need some information on dress code at Duke. I noticed there was alot of shirt & tie going on there when I interviewed. Someone who was at the 2nd look also commended you guys on how professional you are. I'm sure the school doesn't tell students how to dress, but I was wandering if dress shirts are the norm for guys. If that's the case, I'll be glad to conform; but to do that I'll need to go shirt & tie shopping since I've hardly worn them in the past. So what's the scoop? Thanks in advance. :)

    Hi there.

    I've long fantasized about seeing my name as an SDN topic heading (dull fantasy life, I know). Thank for making a dream come true, Original!

    For ordinary class days, there is no dress code of any kind. We've been seeing alot of hawaiian shirts recently, as well as ancient T-shirts. Jeans and shorts are completely fine. One afternoon every other week, you'll likely be working with a "standardized patient" or doing clinic visits or somesuch. This involves shirt and tie, with your white coat (which you'll get during the eponymous ceremony) to complete the look. And pants, of course. Don't forget those.

    Second year you'll be looking "professional" every day, so you may want to stock up on shirts and ties eventually, but that's a ways off. In the meantime, anything you're comfortable in is A-OK. The bigger problem tends to be dressing to suit the climate. What do you wear when it's 95 degrees outside, but airconditioned inside to 47 degrees? Answer: layers.

    :cool: :D <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" /> :D :cool:

    PS: Last year, quite a few people did "shirt and tie it" for the first few days of class. Boy did we ever look professional. It didn't last more than a week.
