Meet with the DOA, tour, observation.. What to wear..?

Postby Moral_Midgetry » Wed Jan 19, 2011 6:06 pm

I'm meeting with the Dean of Admissions, taking a tour, and observing a class at a T1 school this week. I've met with DOAs at other schools and wore suits the other times. Should I do the same here? I know if I do I will stick out like a sore thumb in the class but I probably will anyway. Anyone else have experience with this?

Suit is overdoing it. Business casual is the way to go. I wore khakis and a blazer to schools when I was visiting.

I think a suit would be overkill. I met with an assistant dean recently and just wore slacks, shirt, and tie. For a tour and sitting in a class, wear some nice jeans and a v-neck or something. Students I've seen post on TLS say to dress "normal" when you're coming in for class sessions and stuff.
