I am a female and I am only taking 2 backpacks to all of my interviews (don't want to check any luggage). I have a couple questions about what to bring for the interviews. Anything to take notes in? Hold CV copies? I feel like carrying around a backpack is not OK. Someone mentioned a padfolio but what size and what should I put in it? And do I just carry it around all day? I am also concerned about what to wear, if I should err on the side of slacks and a blouse with flats and maybe a blazer, or a skirt suit with tights and heels. (Weather is 40-65 degrees, I have no idea how far I will be walking on interview day). For the dinners, I was thinking jeans and flats and a nice blouse? What about for just hanging out the graduate student who is hosting me? Sorry for all the questions!
