    Hey every1, is it ok wear a 2 piece suit or is that too formal? I'm very comfortable doing that but I dont want to over do it while everyone else is dressing casual and by casual I realize that it means no jeans, shorts, open toe shoes, teeshirts.

    thank everyone

    see ya in dental school.

    For interviews a suite is totally appropriate. A tux would probably be out of place, and I think three piece suites are somewhat out of style (however I think their pretty cool). Look as professional as possible!

    But what the hell do I know. Look at my avatar I wear red shoes and a black fricking frock. I find it slimmingÂ…

    Did the interview invite say to wear something casual? Unless it did, I would go with the suit. Almost everyone wears a dark suit.

    I was told that I should dress professionally and that I should not wear open toe shoes because of OSHA requirements and that I shouldnt wear jeans, or shorts.

    I think ur all right, I will go for a 3 button 2 piece dark suit.

    thanks 4 ur input :)


    see it in dental school. :thumbup:

    Also I have mixed feeling on going 'flashy' or not-i think if you want to stand out a little go with a lighter grey instead of dark grey or black. and a nice *well pressed* shirt,(I like pale blue w/ light grey flannel suits) with a simple tie. I don't think it is a good time to experiment with a flashly tie.

    Also make sure your shoes match the style of your suit- on an interview one of the guys had on a very nice suit, but then ruined the look by wearing doc martin shoes with the big luggy soles. that's just my opinion, but do what feels right for you-that way you won't be concentrating on you outfit, you will be more focused on your interview.

    Good luck!
