    For those who have been to interviews
    What do you do with your luggage after you check out from hotel?
    The only option I can think of is to drag the luggage to the school and ask them to store it for me. What do you actually do.

    For guys, what is the best way to keep your suit wrinkle free in your bag?
    Any advice?

    to answer the suit in the bag question......
    ask around to see if anyone has one of those special suit carrying luggage, you know the one that all the business men use when they travel that has a zip down the middle and a hole at the top for a hanger to poke through.
    if no one has one of those then:.......
    1)take the jacket and lay it flat on your bed with the front with
    buttons laying on the bed and the back facing you.
    2)take some other clothes you have, a few pair of jeans for
    example, (even if you aren't gonna wear them just use them for
    the purpose of keeping your suit wrinkle free) and lay them in
    the middle of the jacket and line up the edges of the jeans to
    the seams of the arms of the jacket.
    3)fold the arms over the jeans. then fold the bottom half of the
    jacket over the jeans.
    4)take the pants and fold them so the creases are running down
    the fronts and backs of each leg.
    5)lay the pants on your bed
    6)take some shirts and lay them on the top most part of the pants
    7)then grab the pants and shirts and fold them over neatly so
    the shirts are now in between the top part of pants and the
    second portion of the pants.
    8)you will continue to fold them over till you get to the bottom of
    the pants. sort of like rolling a sushi roll/sandwich wrap.
    9)put the bundled up suit into your bag and make sure you put
    enough clothes in your bag so that nothing moves around.
    10)if you find your suit still gets wrinkles then the moment you
    get to your room take the suit out and pat water on the
    wrinkled parts and hang them up to let dry.
    i hope that helped. dragonj

    Hey guys!

    Invest in a suit bag. For $13 or so, they are definitely worth it. If you are flying, ask the airline to place the suit bag in a garment box. I've found this to be the best method so far.

    As a courtesy, many hotels will provide day storage of your luggage. This will alleviate the need to lug your luggage to the school.

    Hope this helps!

    Thus far, I've used a garment bag, and stored my bag at the school. The garment bag is small enough to be a carry-on, yet stores everything I need, and keeps my suit from getting crazy lines in it.

    The bell man at the hotel I stayed had a room to keep every thing for all of us interviewee that day. When we came back from the school, we checked our luggage out. Ask when you book the hotel. They even provided us a ride to school and picked us up from the school afterward. Nice?

    Most women wear suits. At least at the interviews I have been on. It seems like black suits are popular this year. If you don't want a suit just dress professionally.
