    I'm sitting here in the library writing a fifteen page paper, and this thought is the only thing keeping me awake. I'm stoked and you should be too!!! No short white jackets for us, just the real deal. Congrats to everyone who's gotten in, and everyone else keep your head up it's still super early in the game!!!

    Scrubs get old faster than you'd expect, and you might end up with the short white coat too. ;) Still, congratulations on getting accepted! It's a great time to become a dentist.

    i've been wearing scrubs for my assisting job for past 7 months and i really like it. its just like wearing a suit; you put it on without really having to think about matching, clashing, etc. its just easier.

    toothy - hell yeah Maryland it is! Someones got to get the FB group going. Not it!

    I want to buy scrubs but i'm wondering if some schools make you wear certain color scrubs because when I toured schools I don't know if it was just a coincidence that they all were wearing same color???hmmm....

    Some schools have dress codes with scrubs as in each year is assigned a color they should wear...other schools like UIC say that you can wear any colored scrub as long as it's solid...the prints are usually reserved for the assistants and hygienists. Other schools like Penn..i THINK allow for casual...more business casual than casual or scrubs... just depends on the school. EXCITING!

    I don't know about ordering a bunch or scrubs or even going out and buying a collection. Some schools require students to wear specific colors depending on the year that they are.

    All jokes aside though... My packet from Marquette said they would give us our scrubs with the Marquette logo. We cant go out and pick whatever we want...

    I would prefer business casual except during lab/pre-clinic/clinic, etc. My 13 year old cousin and his friends wear scrubs in grade school.

    No reason to wear them when not doing dirty work. When I practice, I will probably go with the tie.

    Plus, wearing scrubs in public is gross...who knows what bodily fluids someone at a restaurant in scrubs is covered in?

    Couldn't agree more!

    Why do you want to wear scrubs when you're attending lecture. It seems you're pretending to be someone you're not.

    spoken like a predent.

    you want to get gypsum all over your nice ties? you want wax on your nice shoes?


    To the posters above:

    at UIC you can wear any matching solid colored scrubs every day from day 1 on. If you don't wear scrubs you have to wear business casual.

    No, business casual means khakis and a polo shirt or dress shirt. No tie. Yeah, I don't want to be a poser. Sorry buddy.
     
  33. how about jeans and scrub top? or would that be a social blunder?

    We have a dress code at VCU. The D1s are currently wearing forest green, D2s have burgundy/wine, D3s have smurf blue and D4s have dark blue. They're going to start rotating the colors so the class of 2013 will be getting the dark blue! We also have our names and years embroidered on our scrubs.

    Jealous of you all who get to wear scrubs. We have to wear business casual every day, with white coats any time we do something clinical. Then we have gowns that go over our clothes when dealing with stone and other things that could ruin our nice clothing. I would love to be in PJs every day.

    I believe Creighton does something along those lines. When I visited they all had shirt and tie on with white coats over top.
