What should I wear to this interview?

I am going to apply for admission into medical school and want to know how to dress for the interview. Most of the time I wear jeans and t-shirts or blouses and slacks. I own no dresses. I am nearly 40, which is old for an applicant, but I look quite young (early thirties, maybe even late twenties I am told). There's no point disguising my age because it will be written on all the forms anyway. Should I dress older and more mature to suit my age, or dress as young as I usually do?


I forgot to emphasize: I'm a WOMAN. So I think the suit and tie is out, unless dikes have better chances....

    You should dress like a professional, black trousers, white shirt, black jacket, tie(blue or red).

    Black skin shoes.

    Dress like an executive. That's what I'm saying.

    Appearance do matter. So, do your best!

    To me, if you dress appropriately in your day-to-day life and stay fairly current, there's not a chasm in style between 30s and 40s, so dress in your style, but make sure you're dressing as if you're going to a job interview.

    The suit is not out. You just don't wear the tie. A nice button-up blouse under a jacket and a pair of closed-toe heels is pretty ageless. Don't wear stuff that you'd wear to go clubbing or looks like it came from the junior's department.

    Don't intentionally dress "old"--intentionally dress professionally.

    I think a professional look would be best.As the say every girls crazy about a sharp dressed man. You may also find if you dress like a million bucks you will feel rich inside. Always looking your best for important interviews,It's essential to be taken serious. Though if your shirt is ironed nice with a tie,Along with nice pressed slacks you will do fine.Good Luck
