    Dress to impress!

    Advertisements



    I know that this might seem fundamental, but appearance DOES matter on an interview! We had someone interview today in a pair of jeans...yes jeans!?! He wasn't even wearing a button up shirt or a tie?!? Decked out in a tux would probably be overdoing it, but a suit might be appropriate, or at least slacks with a dress shirt and tie (Sorry ladies, but you may want to ask a woman's opinion on what might be appropriate for a woman to wear). As FMGs, we already walk in that door with something to prove...so don't give them an excuse not to accept you. If you appear as presentable as other applicants, then the Program Directors will have to look at your credentials to determine who is the best qualified. By the time you interview, there is little that you can do to improve your chances (your grades are in), but there is plenty that you can do to lessen them! So make sure that you take care of the little things and the rest should fall in place. Good luck for those who are still on the interview trail.

    non-functioning higher cortex

    sounds like that candidate has some issues with social norms!

    hey, doc, where are you in your training? what program, if you don't mind my asking?
