Do you think having a mullet would ruin your chances during an interview?

If I was the interviewer, it would improve your chances.

Mullets are common practice for most residency candidates. For decades they have be the deciding factor for the more competitive specialties. I am just suprised it has taken so long for this trend to migrate to MS candidates. (disclaimer: I do not know the influence of she-mullets)

Yes, unless you also have the facial hair to match

I heard some neuro residencies had mullet minimum requirements of at least 12 inches, in addition to sworn statements or otherwise proof of having said mullet for five or more years.

You've already been accepted. Why are you concerned?
I don't actually sport a mullet, I was just contemplating the ramifications of having one.

I just imagine this situation: The interviewer sees you head on and thinks to his/herself... "Wow, this candidate is well dressed, very well groomed..." Then the interview is conducted, you shake hands with the interviewer, turn to walk out of the room, and then he/she sees it.

As they say... business in the front, party in the back!

I think mullets would increase your chances of getting in. Diversity is key.
