Received an interview request this morning (splitter), taking it as a good sign. What did everyone else wear? I'm assuming I won't hear back from the alum for a while as its the holidays.
Generally I think:
law firm --> suit
coffee shop/casual setting --> business casual
I wore a suit but no tie as I was meeting my interviewer at a coffee shop and it was late on a weekday. I also got the vibe that my interviewer was laid back from our phone calls and email correspondence.
That being said, if you are worried at all I say go formal as if you were going for a job interview. These people have done it many times before, my interviewer had been doing it for 5 years, and won't care if you are overdressed.
