    Big a fan of the hermes belt. Not critiquing (just for my own knowledge), but is it acceptable to wear a big "flashy" belt buckle? especially gold?

    lol are you joking? o_O

    AH, I didn't know skinny ties were risky... I just really thought I would complement it well, I'm a tall, slender man.

    Man, I was really thinking about this too lol. I can't wait to finally wear the belt but yeah, I don't wanna come off as pretentious or someone who's flashy.

    I only have one plain black belt, nothing fancy or anything. But because my shoes are brown, I kind of want a brown belt as well... I guess I'll just have to get another one.

    Man, this application cycle has wreaked havoc on my bank account lmao

    I have to say I like that belt better. I was a little iffy on the old belt clashing with your shoes. Be careful about matching your browns well (something I'm sure you care about given the fact there's this thread lol). Honestly you could prob wear a black belt and still be fine w brown shoes. It'll be under your suit jacket and not attract attention. But good choice changing the belt. How does it feel having your own sdn style committee? ;)

    Hahaha, thanks. Yeah I feel that Hermes belt was a little bit too much anyways, I'll save it for after I get in LOL.

    It feels good, you people have ensured I'll look amazing come interview day :p

    Now if only I can manage to get my nerves under control...

    Don't freak out about clothing. As long as you wear decent clothes which I see you have picked you will be fine. Interview is all about presenting yourself - esp the part when you open your mouth to answer questions/eye contact/ etc

    Depends, which school is it for? If they say "doors won't open till 8" I wouldn't bother but I know other schools they actually wanted me to show up earlier. I solidly try to arrive like 15 min early. I think 730 is fine definitely not 7

    If you're looking for a good pizza place, make sure you check out a place called Sbarro

    This is ridiculous.. Do you really think adcom will pay attention to how you're dressed? Nope! As long as you look respectable (neat and professional), cheap suit will do just as well! It's amazing how much money people waste on interview attire. I know a girl who bought the cheapest suit she could find ($80 for everything, I believe it was a skirt and a jacket), simple, black and classy-looking flats from TjMaxx for $18, and a white, "office-style" shirt from Ross for $15. She looked professional and neat, and that's all that mattered. She's currently a first-year student at her top choice DS.

    In other words, if your DAT and GPA suck, your Hermes belt will not save you. Sorry to be blunt!

    A cheap suit that fits well may be acceptable, but why not spend a couple hundred more on a quality suit that will last you for years to come? I know funds are tight for a lot of people, but I don't see much sense in paying $150 for a suit from Jos A Bank when $500 will get you one from Nordstrom, including complementary tailoring for the life of the suit.

    $500? You can get a good quality suit at Macy's for $250! They seem to have sales every week...

    If that includes tailoring, then that's a good price as well.

    next week! :D super hype.

    I convinced myself it's going to go well lol. I'm taking it more as encountering a new friend who wants to see why I like dentistry, putting it into perspective like that makes the "interview" seem less daunting.

    ok... interview in 3 days, not trying to bring this thread up from the dead, I think I'm suited and booted well, but I honestly am nervous about the interview now. My friend mock-interviewed me and I was stumped on questions I wasn't initially worried about! D; not sure what happened to my confidence.

    Better to be stumped now than in an interview! Take a deep breath, and review the tricky questions. Since its a few days away you can even google some questions and start brainstorming answers now. Even the most stressful interviews can be made relaxed by being well prepared which it sounds like you are! Good luck.

    Alright, D-Day is tomorrow! Lol.

    Quick question... what's the protocol on wearing a pocket square?! This is what I currently have done.

    you already look flashy with that belt...keep it conservative...the pocket square is a little douchy for an interview (save it for formal parties)...

    I would leave the pocket square at home. Number one rule for an interview, don't be remembered by your outfit!

    Got it... is a tie clip okay? Just to keep my tie in place, I'm going to be walking there from the station (15 mins walk) so I don't want it to look out of place, or be disheveled at any point of the interview when the tie won't be in my sight.

    I think pocket squares are okay, but maybe not that type of fold. The suit guy at neimans suggested just plain white, folded in a rectangle, with a quarter to a half inch exposed.
