Why would there only be two allowable colors for a tie?

i think grey with red stripes is the norm ... the stripes should be equally spaced too, else may god have mercy on you.

thats crazy, i've never read anything that says you have to wear a certain color tie, just keep it muted and not flashy or anything and you will be fine as long as you match haha

actually, the tie needs to specifically be in the school's exact colors....if it is one shade off, you will be jeopardizing your interview

If you go commando, you'll definitely want a winter weight fabric for your suit. You could freeze your nuts off! (depending where your interview is I suppose...)

edit: I moved this to the Off-Topic forum.

you do not even need to wear a tie - totally depends on who and where you have the meeting. but if you are going for business dress, just wear a conservative suit not necessarily certain colors.

This. You want to show them that THEY should need YOU, and not vice versa. If you wear a suit it will show that you want the job too much. I'd suggest coming in a TAD bit hungover (not too much though) to really show that you don't need the job too much. It's like getting girls, if you care TOO much then they won't even want you at all.

Of Course nobody wants to wear a tie, as someone says you don't even want to wear a suit to show you like the school so much, But is that true, I don't think you want to take the chance of not wearing a suit or tie.

This. OP I'd consult a color wheel; you don't want to get dinged for something as minor as kelly green vs forest.

Generally, these interviews are supposed to be casual at best. T-shirt is acceptable if it's warm, but, if it's cold, I suggest one of those Russian hats and snow pants. It shows you're adaptable, which is really the point of the interview process.

Also, when in doubt, go with plaid.
