    What do people think of premed interviewees that wear the Trinity Knot?

    How bad of a handicap is the Trinity Knot, if any? Does it make an applicant stand out at all?

    How well would a 3.8/520 applicant with good ECs do in an application cycle, if he used the Trinity Knot?

    CTFO or Conservative Ties Fashion Only!

    No, we automatically reject people who seem not to adhere to the rigid fashion expections of physcians with dark suits, white shirts and windsor knots. Someone once showed up in a scotch plaid suit and was told his interview was mistakenly scheduled. I would steer clear of such ideas especially the idea the this would matter in the least. So CTFO a completely different meaning here

    If the most memorable thing about an applicant is their tie knot they have much bigger problems.

    Why "handicap" yourself? You'd stand out, but not in a good way.

    I think everyone would just assume you somehow managed to get the face of your knot backwards

    To who? The fashion police? I think we should tie this whole idea with one neat knot. After all, this suits you well as you would give the shirt off your back to these students. Personally it just makes start panting, wanting to belt these applicants as they suspender good judgement. Let the other shoe just drop and I will sock ‘em

    Yes the knot is okay. Its either the purposeful provocation or, worse, a real paranioa that a great GPA and 520 needs a gussied up knot to be noticed

    Honestly I would just think you had no idea how to tie a tie, and just twisted it around until it looked vaguely like a knot.

    Honest man I've got a 3.6 and 519; could I get into my state school with a Trinity Knot? Is middling GPA + Trinity lethal for top 20s?
