    I know this is a stupid question...but I have to ask it. So I have an interview planned at Case Western in December. I realize there will be snow and ice everywhere and it will be very cold. I have a question regarding what shoes I should wear. Before you guys jump on me for not understanding cold weather, I did attend a school in the Midwest that had horrible winters...so I'm familiar with this weather. But...I never really had to dress up, wear a suit, and have to walk around in the snow. I don't think I'll be able to wear heels, but I can't wear snowboots either. Does anyone know if the tour at Case Western consists of a lot of outdoor walking? Or can anyone suggest decent dress shoes to wear (for a girl) who has to walk in the snow and/or ice? Thanks.

    wear boots there and change once you're inside. They'll understand (or you can change shoes before you enter the office.) I don't recall much outside walking on the tour, although I think we did go outside for about 30 seconds. You may not, in winter.

    there is no outside part of the tour, the only time you will be outside will be your arrival/departure. because it is on the hospital campus the sidewalks to and from building and garages are well maintained, you should hae no problems wearing any type of dress shoe

    Thanks guys...one less thing to worry about. You know...slipping on the ice in the middle of my interview = not good.

    you do realize your interview itself will be INSIDE. mine wasn't, but that's because it was so gorgeous outside i suggested we sit on one of the benches... so we did. BUT there is walking on the tour, which is given by students who open the floor to questions, and have no bearing at all on your acceptance.

    but still, be careful about the slipping and falling. :)

    Yes, I know that my interview is inside, but I don't want to be remembered as the girl who fell during the tour. I want to leave a lasting impression...a good lasting impression. Thanks for the advice and I'll try not to slip. :)
