Hey hey,
I just got an acceptance call and the scholar's day invite yesterday, so this is all kind of last minute, but what is everyone (well, girls) wearing on Friday? Is it business casual?

I am wearing black slacks, a white and black striped short sleeved blouse, and black 2 inch, closed toe heels.

Edit: 7:30 at the DT lobby sounds good to me. I'm also down for drinks elsewhere after dinner.

I'm so jealous I won't get to come out with you guys on Thursday.

Edit: Wait, that's tomorrow... technically today... crazy/exciting stuff.

Thanks, left Miami a little while ago, can't wait to see everyone. I'll be sure to take plenty of pictures, but I'm not posting them in the picture thread after all those southern California schools, FSU just can't compare lol.

Dang NC that sounds a lot more business than casual. I was going to wear a cute sundress but now I'm totally reconsidering.


Also: People driving from the south west of FL-- are you taking US 19 or I75/I10?

I was going to wear a sundress too with a black short sleeved jacket over it. I have black pants but they're way too long. I also don't have any closed toed shoes that are appropriate nor do I have anything under 4" that isn't an open sandal. I wish they'd give guidelines, because the definitions of business and casual are so different.

I always have taken FLORIDA business casual as anything cute that doesnt show your hoo-ha and your boobs. I have some seriously businessy clothes from working at the law firms. Cute suits, both skirts and pants of all colors. Its just... merrrr....

I know it's different for me as a guy, but I'm going with khakis and colorful (well, at least non-white/blue) button-down. Translate that as you will.

Button down and slacks for me. But, I'm sure it is much harder for the ladies. If you guys decide on a place to get drinks after the restaurant, I may go. My wife does not get off until ~8, and naturally, she would like to go.

Don't know if anyone else is interested, and I know many are coming from out of town, but FSU plays its first Baseball game tomorrow at 4:00. I will probably go. The stadium is awesome.

Ladies: I have NO fashion sence at all (really, my idea of a perfect outfit is a wife beater, jean shorts and boat shoes) but for some reason I like the way my kahki pants look with my black jacket (and black heels). Is that a no go?

That sounds fine to me. I take "business casual" to just mean no denim and no flip flops. Not sure yet what I'm wearing but it will probably be something like khakis and a nice top.

Every single person going will be wearing khakis, including myself lol.

Cool Brees, I'm totally down for the game. Ain't got shit else to do since my girl had to do jury duty. I'll be grabbing drinks after dinner. I'll probably catch a can to meet everyone at the DT if someone can give me a lift to the restaurant.

I'll be down for 1 or 2 drinks after dinner pending I can bring my sister with me. She is 18 and may or may not have a fake ID but I dont want to risk it haha.
Also, my back seat can hold 2 more people comfortably besides me and her (3 if you're all relatively thin haha) so whoever wants them

Unless you go to somewhere on the strip, she's fine (the clubs are all 18 and up including The Irish Pub)
Ken's and Bulls are def 21+. Poor Pauls might be 21 and up too, but not sure

Alright guys I'm off to lunch with my fiance then Tally! I might not have my laptop with me (I'm on fiance's... cat chewed through my charger last night-- going to best buy on way to see if they have one) but I'll be in the lobby of the doubletree at 7:30 with my sister! We are both tall with long blonde hair!

101 is less than a black from the Double Tree; so, I doubt anyone would need/ want to drive to it. If everyone is meeting at the hotel at 7:30, I could probably make it to 101 ~8:30. How many people have checked in?

I definitely want to go to the game. Should be a nice day out.

Well, this pretty much seals the deal for me. Just offered $30,000 from FSU via e-mail - 10k a year, no stips. Hard to justify UF at this point.

Congrats, man. See you in Tally.

Is anyone else with a car meeting at the DT?

I think we may have decided on Thai food (probably Bahn Thai) instead of 101. If you want, I can PM you with where we do ultimately decide to eat? Then you can meet up with us.
