A light work out schedule (~45 minutes a day, 3 days a week) with a decent diet will put on 10-15 pounds pretty quickly. I'm 5' 9" and went from 140 to 150 in 2 months (with a drop in body fat, so about +15 pounds of muscle). It was a huge difference, with not a lot of work....
Start working out and eating a lot. You're really skinny, and will have a hard time finding clothes that fit well without putting on some weight.

I have a pair of APC Rescues waiting for me when I get home from college. The waist should be the right size, since I had bought one pair that didn't fit and sized down 2 from there - with the 1st pair I pinched all the extra fabric when I was wearing them and measured. Anyway, I'm probably going to need them hemmed - I usually wear about a 32" inseam for the correct fit in pants/khakis....no stacking, but when I'm standing the back falls near my heel, so they're long...

Gotcha....I read it more as a "dumb ass, you're not getting a job" I'm interviewing with a different HR person first, then 5 different engineers. I guess in some situations (smaller company with lots of HR/manager interaction) it could be an issue, but I don't really see any problem with asking here. The only suit I have now is a dark navy suit with very narrow pinstripes. Are pinstripes alright, or should I look into renting a plain navy/black suit?

Just a guess, but I think that the engineering managers that I'm interviewing with are much more concerned with my engineering abilities than...
I have an interview coming up this Friday. I emailed the HR lady saying "What is the dress code at xyz company? I'm planning to wear a suit, but if business casual is acceptable for an interviewee, I would prefer to wear that." She responded saying "We are business casual, but please keep in mind that this is an interview, so what you would like to wear is your choice" So...suit?
Depends on your build. J crew tailored fit polos fit me really well, so they might be worth checking out. I like the 'repp pique' more than the 'vintage' but repp pique is only online. The fit the same, so you can try on the 'vintage' in store before ordering the repp pique...I'm pretty sure that if you order in store you don't have to pay shipping.
I bought the white Baird McNutt linen shirt from a seller here. Wore it to a cookout the other day with some blue shorts and brown flip flops. I got tons of positive comments.
