    Dress to impress.

    Let me suggest the orange colored suit replete with spectacle, top hait, coat tails and cane featured in Dumb and Dumber.

    JC, It's important to dress. Dress to impress.

    its 2nd look. its meant to be casual. to take a indepth look at the things you may have missed and more social time with the students as well. something nice just incase you go drink at a nice bar or clubbin or something like that. and if its for like 2 days and you are staying a night...then just pack both casual and nice clothes.

    Casual all the way! (Unless you're visiting Cornell, they tell you to bring something nice in case you see patients). I doubt they'll withdraw your acceptance if you forget. :cool:

    Confirming jlee's post.

    I remember someone showing up at Duke's second look weekend in a suit; he looked a right wally. People kept staring at him, too, with looks ranging from incredulity to pity. He ended up going somewhere else, for what it's worth.

    At Duke there are dinners at the houses of various faculty, deans, and the director of admissions. You might want to gussy yourself up slightly for this kind of thing, though it's certainly not necessary. And gussying oneself up still does not mean donning a suit -- it's more along the lines of making sure your clothes don't have big holes in them.

    I'm on my way to Durham this weekend and wanted to know the deal with these faculty dinners. It looks like 5 or 6 people are hosting them, so is it like 20 future students at a faculty members house?

    Yup, that's right. They'll be catered and buffet-style, probably. Whose house are you at, do you know yet?

    a feather boa, buttless leather chaps, pasties, hand-cuffs, stilleto pumps, a tiara

    well those are just some ideas...I'm not wearing the chaps with the tiara....obviously.
