    i'm wearing a black pant suit with black shimmering pinstripes to my interviews. i'm wondering if one would wear a plain button-down shirt (to be safe) or a blue one (i guess that's not too risky either) or a baby blue silky sort of shirt. i know this is SUCH A SILLY QUESTION but since i'm back-and-forth about it, i thought i would solicite some advice. thanks a bunch.

    SMW - what a great question... :D

    Anyway, as a guy, I will back away gracefully. Except to say that I think any one of the three would seem fine to me. But as a guy, I'm severly fashion impaired. ;)

    I think as long as it's not too out there, it shouldn't have an impact on the interview. I've read in books that you should stick to dark blue/black/grey, but to me, that seems a little paranoid. I would say that none of the three would automatically disqualify you from medical school admissions.

    My nicest suit happens to be green, and I plan on wearing it to my interviews. At least if I get rejected, I'll have something to blame it on.

    Personally I'd wear the silky blue shirt, but then again I've been the only one wearing red at my interviews so far (the shirt, not the suit). I don't think button-down goes with shimmering anything! Guess I should have known that a guy would never describe his suit as a "pant suit."

    okay your turn SMW, what's your gender? anyhow, the shimmering isn't really that shocking. from far away you would think it's a pin-striped suit, close-up the stripes are made of shimmering fabric. i think it's pretty but i am still having two girlfriends and my mother come over to confirm that! :D

    Definitely the blue silky one. I found a gorgeous copper colored shantung silk shirt under my black (skirt) suit. I think its adds a little style without being out there.
    Good Luck!

    We're rebels up here in Canada with our, get this, green suits, eh?

    I think if you stick to the black/navy thing, then you'll blend into the crowd. As long as you're not too flashy, I don't think it should be a problem.

    But I haven't been accepted anywhere, so I suppose that would have to be taken with a grain of salt. ;)

    besides, i looked "too young" in my black suit

    I would wear whatever you're most comfortable. If it's your first interview, you might want to wear the "safe" shirt so that you can see what everyone else is wearing.
    I personally like to vary it up. Sometimes I wear a black skirt or pant suit. I also have a dark red/burgundy suit and sometimes I wear that or wear the jacket with black pants. As long as it is appropriate, just wear whatever you feel most comfortable (and confident) in!! :) Good luck!

    If you have blue eyes--wear the baby blue sky; if you are Caucasian and have dark hair and brown eyes--wear the darker blue. But, if you have darker (like olive) skin, like Jennifer Lopez, then wear the baby blue.

    thanks sooooooo much for all your helpful advice. i'm still deciding but i think baby blue is the winner. and i know "monkeybutt" is a little unusual but i like monkeys and i like butts so why not! :)
