At the interview, always stick to the safe side and don't try to stand out in the way you dress. Remember, these are all mostly conservative 40-50 year olds evaluating your application and you never know if it rubs someone the wrong way. Most likely, you can wear that and no one even mentions it. But it may be a distraction if someone isn't used to seeing 4 earrings. So why risk it?
Imo, that doesn't seem to be a problem. If you were to have gauges or big hoop earrings then I think it might be an issue. But those 2 small piercings really aren't anything crazy.
I agree with the second poster; it's best to stay on the safe side and wait until after the interviews to get your ears pierced a second time. Just be patient
Not a problem
Double piercing is fine! I had them since I was eight and just wear fine jewelry rather than large standing out jewelry.
I always wear earrings and I've never had a problem. It's not like your face is pierced or tongue! It's very subtle.
Just keep in mind, like other posters have said, many people you will be interviewing with will be older, more conservative and don't view multiple piercings as appropriate in a professional setting. I would say, give it a year, if you still want the double, do it then, but get through interview season first and then reconsider. You are not 8, it is not "fine" to the people with whom you will be interviewing with and frankly, hold the rest of your life in their hands with a yes or no for dental school.
I don't find double piercings attractive at all Just my two cents though
Thanks.. I knew it was worth posting.
I actually find that to be sizzling hot. Like fried chicken hot...
Fry fry chicky chick. Yum haha
I am vividly imagining some prof drooling over the double piercing
I wouldn't risk it.
You can always get it after!
Couldn't you just get the piercing and take them out for the day? Or even just wear your hair down? Coming from a guy, I wouldn't even notice that you had 2 piercings in the same ear, especially if you are pleasant to talk with. GET THEM PIERCED
Personally I don't have anything against double piercings but be aware that at our school, when students are in the clinic seeing patients women are not allowed to have more than one earring per ear; and no visible tattoos. So you might want to see if that policy is in effect at the schools you are considering.
Wait... I have way more than just a double piercing. I'm talking I have 11 piercings on my ears. But I never wear my lobe piercings, just the cartilages... Do the adcoms even look at ears? That's weird to me. Haha but also my hair will be down so I'm not worried.
Personally, I think a double ear piercing is very minimal and it's America.. I feel like a bunch of girls have multiple ear piercings? Or maybe I just grew up in an area where it is very common to get all sorts of ear piercings.. Hmmm...
Go with your gut.
...Seriously? Welcome to the professional world
I agree! My nose is pierced and the possibility of taking that out for my interviews never even occurred to me. Granted, it's a very small piercing that takes most people a few months to notice is there, but still...
The point of the interview is for them to get to know you. So let them.
Well.. Good luck in your interviews then..
Just one more spot open for someone else....
The point of interview is to convince them that they really like you, you confuse it with the first date
Those are barely noticeable, OP
I just got a cartilage piercing over the summer and I can't remove it since it hasn't healed. Do you think it would be a problem for interviews. It's a small zirconia stud. Nothing flashy or crazy?
You're fine. I have 5 cartilage piercings. Can't see them when my hair is down, so I've been fine. So unless you plan on wearing your hair up in a ponytail or bun, you should be good.
Double piercings are not considered unprofessional at all as long as the piercings aren't huge. Cartilage and doubles are fine as long as they're tiny. I would never wear hoops or spacers or an industrial to an interview though. I think as long as you keep it classy, it's okay. Depending on how you wear your hair, they may not even really show.
Thanks for the opinion!
