  Guys and girls!

Please post what you plan to wear for the pre-interview casual/semi-casual dinner meet with residents.

Would be fun, plus some of us will get tips!
Cheers.

  I'm a girl and would wear either a casual dress (non revealing of course), a sweater and pants/skirt. If its more casual, maybe jeans and a sweater? Hopefully no fashion faux pas will be made!

  men: wear a nice dress shirt with a nice tie, wear dress pants, and wear a blazer if cold. In winter wear a nice sweater outside the shirt, bu the sweater has to fit your body well.

Simply drop the tie, if you see everyone at the table is in casual clothes.


women: sorry, i am a guy. So the more beautiful you dress, the more I like it.

Interview Attire Tips
Before you even think about going on an interview, make sure you have appropriate interview attire and everything fits correctly.
Get your clothes ready the night before, so you don't have to spend time getting them ready on the day of the interview.
If your clothes are dry clean only, take them to the cleaners after an interview, so they are ready for next time.
Polish your shoes.
Bring a breath mint and use it before you enter the building.
