Women - Do #1
A conservative dark grey suit with a skirt that is at least knee-length works well.
Women - Do #2
A pants suit, with pants that are loosely draped, is a great choice if you might be interviewing in colder climates.
Women - Do #3
A dark tailored suit with a single strand of pearls looks classically professional.
Women - Do #4
Navy is a great choice if you want to avoid black or grey.
Women - Don't #1
While this suit is very nice, avoid light colors and short sleeves on blazers.
Women - Don't #2
Avoid short skirts (or the dreaded formal shorts), multi-colored blazers, short sleeves, and big jewelry.
Women - Don't #3
Capri pants are very jaunty and cute, but they are not acceptable interview wear.
Women - Don't #4
Make sure that your suited pieces match for a professional look. These pants are too tight and too short, as well.
Women - Don't #5
Light colored and shiny fabrics are not appropriate for interviews; neither are these capri length pants.
Women - Don't #6
Stay away from over styled blazers with piping, even one this cute.
Women - Don't #7
While neon jewelry and bright pink pants may be work appropriate some places, this outfit is far too trendy and casual for a medical school interview.
