Alright, I get it we need a suit. But for women there is such a variety. Do you go with a very classic cut? Do I definitely need to wear a shirt or will a good looking fine turtleneck still look good? I hate jackets but I can deal with it. Shirts never look right on me and I am always self conscious. What to do, what to do? And shoes. Ladies, I am freaking out about my outfit.

I agree with the 2 piece pant suit option. If you are short (as I am)...Petite Sophisticate has great suits! I think you have to also put some thought into what you will be doing during the interview. During our interview, we took a walking tour of the campus- 90 degrees in a black suit really helps clean your pores
before your interview.
I, also, think it's nice to get a manicure and hair cut as it makes you feel good and "The devil's in the details". I think men have it easy, a clear cut path- suit, dress shirt, tie. Women have to battle through this year's fashion, various fabrics, patterns, sizes, accessories...
Oh! I am so glad you guys understand. We have a job where matching scrubs
is dressing up!!! I have nice clothes but suit, my God. I feel like monkey in a suit. This is giving me and hopefully others a good idea about what to wear. Thanks.
Are you in, by the way? Are you still interviewing?

I did like a couple of suits at Ann Taylor and I ordered a pair of Kenneth Coles that have a little heel. I am only 5 feet so I need a little elevation. Also what did you have pursewise? A briefcase type thing or a nice leather bag? Girls have so much more to worry about, I tell you!
I had a portfolio which I had copies of my application (to refer to if needed to explain something on my application) a pen and put my keys in my jacket pocket. The less to worry about the better!
