I was under the impression that the first day would be the day where you should dress smartly, so I actually had to go buy an outfit for it because I didn't have anything I thought would suffice. There's no way I can just let it languish in my closet now...

People were casual/business casual throughout, although looking smart for the first day is wise. If you don't look sloppy you won't be out of place.
Ugh, whyyyyyyy? :cry: I don't have more than 2 days of business casual! If I can't wear jeans, golf shorts or cargo pants, my wardrobe only covers about 3 outfits!


Getting a pair of khakis might be useful. Or chinos or something. But yeah, suits are a bda idea for orientation.



Rink, when DAT LOAN SKRILLA comes through, we can do a basics shop. A pair of khakis, a pair of wool dress pants, and some shells/shirts will get you really far. nobody will notice if you wear your pants multiple times.

Truth.


Also, on a completely unrelated note, when were we planning on starting the dinner club/parties that were discussed earlier ITT?

There's one tank you definitely will get noticed in if you wear it again.

There was an old couple sitting at a table up by the library looking like they were just busying themselves. Definitely looked like someone brought their parents and the parents were just hanging out killing time.

Haha. Well I need to go by tomorrow to pick up some transcripts, I'll be on the lookout.

I swear I saw someone's mom with her today, but it was an Asian girl, so she could have been international. I hope. I feel like internationals get a pass on being weird, to a degree.

Nope, no pass. We judge all equally.

More Suggestions:
-H&M (across water tower) I'd def hit this up first-cheapest but still presentable.
-Zara (on Michigan ave a few blocks down) I prefer this over H&M for knit tops.
-Banana Republic (also Michigan Ave but FWIW the Chicago Premium Outlets in Aurora have a Banana, Club Monaco, Benetton and Calvin Klein...if you find a friend willing to drive there :roll:) I get emails for when Banana has 30-40% off online and can let you know :wink:
-Macys (in Water Tower)
-Nordstrom as suggested by franklyscarlet. Nordstrom is the priciest of this list but will have the most variety in size and shape for a better fit. There's also Nordstrom Rack down Chicago-toward Chick fil A.

Make sure you don't misread spouse as mom. I saw that happen once, and it was ugly.

Also venture into places like Wicker Park/Bucktown for boutique-y stuff! Don't stay in Streeterville all the time...Streeterville pretty much sucks, and won't give you a good sense of life in Chicago as a whole.

And I will reiterate this one final time...you really don't need to dress up. It's school, not a law firm. Dress in a way that makes you feel comfortable. People who dress up too much are funny.

Are there any current AJD students in this thread that would be willing to answer some questions from current applicants?
