    Negative. More interested in surgery at this point, but given that I've worked for two years in HIV/ID and two years in orthopedic spine, it's a pretty limited viewpoint. I think I've seen more cases than most med students starting 3rd year though.

    Side note: Was a bit bummed by french cleaners. I can still see the creases on the sleeves where the sleeves were extended.

    One of the reasons I did this was I qualified for fee assistance. It would have been the same as applying to 10 schools without the waiver.

    Cool stuff. Good luck with your interviews! And the remaining schools — waiting is the worst

    Sure, thanks for your offer. Given the feedback so far, I can see that the length is better but there is still pulling around the button. Lapels are too thin (right?). Not sure what is going on with the back, so took two pictures. Is it odd that the back looks too big, but the chest too small? Also wondering how much wrinkling is normal for cotton jackets, I can see pulling in front but are the back wrinkles a sign of ill fit as well?

    FWIW, shirt is more a true red chambray.

    I think the length is causing most of the issues. It's not draping really well just kind of sitting on your butt. There's not much your can do to the rest without accentuating that even more. I had the same issues with shorter casual jackets and just stopped buying them. Works for some better than others.

    Too short. You have to also consider your posture; low right shoulders and lordosis.

    Noodles posse, the three Cantarelli suits from Yoox came in, all of different style. Unfortunately, the chest is too small on all of them so I will not bother with pictures. The three piece navy was the real winner of the bunch but must accept the chest is too tight.
