Always remember one thing: The interviewer(s) want the best candidate for the job or whatever. They do not give a fig about SF's views or what might have been 'right' fifty years ago. Most will not even know about such matters.

Of course you have to dress reasonably in a suit that fits etc but much beyond that is YOU feeling comfortable and giving a good account of your self rather than any persuasive influence it will have over the interviewers.

Some will say this controversial, it is however reality.

I would go for the Fifth Avenue over the Park Avenue. It's a tiny bit less boring while still remaining extremely conservative.

Seahawk, glad you found your ensemble for your interview. The watch is nice. Go with the belt you have. Go easy on the cologne. If you are buying AE shoes get the Park Avenues over the ones you suggested. Don't get the cane just yet.

Now that you have your interview gear sorted out you can concentrate on the interview. Don't over think things, be natural and honest. I don't know what kind of interview you will undergo but whether it is a standard format or something else be sure to understand what you are being asked. Schools are interested how you strategically assess what you are being asked and how you form a complete answer. They also know the websites that applicants hang out on to try and get advice on potential questions and answers.

Remember, if asked to describe a time in your life when you had to make a difficult decision, an example of choosing between Europe or Asia for a vacation never goes over well. Hopefully you have a bit more life experience than that. Maybe you could discuss your clothing decision-making process and how it was guided by SF!

Good luck

If I go with AE shoes I will probably be looking on ebay for some barely used ones since spending $300 on a pair of shoes at this point in my life is rather absurd. I would be approaching OK with something under $200.

 

I am taking my suit to the tailor this weekend. I will post a picture  for you guys once I get it back for a final check of approval.

 

 

Finally, on the topic of the cane, I will have to pass haha!

 

 

 

Off the topic of style, to answer about the interview..

 

The interview consists of typical questions: Why do you want to be a dentist? What are your weak points? What do you know about healthcare policy in our state? What are your hobbies? etc...

 

I am preparing adequately but obviously not becoming too scripted... Just figuring out some things I could talk about for the most likely questions.

 

I have been told I have a lot personality and am not socially awkward in the slightest...My stats are easily above 90 percentile so I am not getting too stressed over it. I think I will be fine, especially being the best dressed guy there! Hah!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thanks so much guys!

You can't beat that price. Considering how long they will last makes them a decent investment.

 

If you want a pair that will last for interviews and social events over the course of dental school and will be thrown out after:

I had a pair of Bostonians that I wore to work in the rain in NYC. Held up decently. Eventually broke and was shipped a new pair free and no questions asked. They are extremely comfortable and do fine sitting in a closet for long periods. You also wont feel bad if someone spills a drink on them. My strands, on the other hand, don't make it out too often.

Hey guys,

I went over to an Allen Edmonds factory store. I absolutely love these shoes! They had the parks for 199. I have decided I would be ok with that...Especially since I overheard a guy shopping, probably in his 50s, saying how he still had a pair that he had gotten in college. They said they would have to order my exact size..So I was a bit worried about not getting to see what the flaw would be...anyone have experience or guidance with this?


Thanks
