    I attempted to search for this but didn't find anything. I apologize if someone has already adressed this.

    What is standard dress for a male at second look visits? Is it the same as it was for the interview day or is it a little more casual? I have one coming up in less then two weeks and realized that I have no idea what I am supposed to wear. Does anyone else know? :)

    Much more casual. Casual pants (but not jeans), open collar shirt or polo shirt. What some people call "business casual". Whereas for the interview you dressed like the PC, for 2nd look you can dress like the Mac. ;)

    Agreed. On the one hand, you are already accepted so you can get away with pretty much anything. On the other hand you want to look sharp because this is the first time you will meet many of those who will be your classmates. So go with "smart casual". For guys that is usually non-denim pants, shoes and something with a collar. For women that is, of course, a bustier, mini skirt and stillettos.:D

    No, you don't have to wear a suit. Go business casual and you'll be fine. :)
