looking young vs. looking old at the interviews

Discussion in 'Pre-Dental' started by xxxTheDonxxx, Aug 11, 2006.

  1. Do you think a guy walking in looking like a dad has more advantage than a guy walking in looking like a 20yr old? Any harm looking a bit young?

    Looking hot, sexy, and confident is the best.

    I don't see why these are supposed to be mutually exclusive. I'm going as a cool dad.

    Look has nothing to do with it. You can look mature, but talks and handles yourself like a douchebag....you are a douchebag regardless of what you look like.

    Confidence, manners, etc is the key.

    How you look doesn't matter. I will say, however, that being older gives you a leg-up. Truly older, that is, like early to mid 30s. Schools eat that up.

    I think so too. "It's the inside that counts."

    Nice idea :idea: I'm all for that. But seriously, look polished and carry yourself w/confidence..Looking old/young isn't going to make or break you. Just my two cents :)

    I'm just soo happy that part of the process is over for me.*wheew* g'luck to all those beginning this cycle.
