Sounds good! Or better yet go with what you look the best in! Just think of how good a black male might look in a beige suit and how stupid an English/Irish guy like myself would look in that same suit!

Have you guys ever debated about going with the contacts or the glasses? I have chunky, black glasses (similar to the ones in rhyme's avatar) and I've often debated with myself what to wear to interviews. If I had more conventional and conservative glasses then it obviously wouldn't matter. But I've gone with the glasses everytime.

I would go with whichever makes you look more attractive. Some people look better with glasses, but most don't, depends on your face.

That's a negative. Sorry to disappoint you! But she does look promising based on the upper half of her face doesn't she.

Phooey, if that's you in your avatar, maybe the glasses would help cover up the gash next to your eye.

With regard to pleats, I think they look normal as part of a suit, but in general I think of pleats the way I think of elastic waist bands.

I always go with glasses. Without them I tend to give off the jock-vibe. But my glasses are fairly stylish.

Pleats serve a function to alleviate "extra" size when sitting. If you're fat you may need it. It also gives the illusion of size, so it's good for rail thin people.

Otherwise, I would go non pleats, it's cleaner, modern and youthful.

Its a mixed bag with LASIK... My brother had a great experience and no dry eye. I have bad dry eye and have to put gel in my eyes before I go to sleep. Its annoying. My mom is convinced I didn't heal properly as I didn't come home and go to sleep after surgery but rather hooked up with some girl who wanted to nail me at the time.

One thing that bothers me is the blue shirt with the white collar and cuffs (aka the banker shirt). I would imagine that look would come off as very stuffy in a college interview.

See that scares me a bit.. I've wanted to do LASIK but stories like that bug me.

I don't know if the technology is better these days... allot of that medical stuff, particularly laser surgeries, seems to be improving at lightening fast rates. But of course it still may just come down to the individual. Medical experiences are highly individual and no matter what statistics might say you are going to find non-mean experiences all over the place.

Hmm. You see, I would consider that a lawyer's shirt. Or a wordthatbreaksgmatclub-wits shirt.

I actually took the p!ss out of a guy at work for wearing one of those so much that I have never seen it again. I feel like I helped him.

Wow, a lot of anger for a shirt. That shirt/style is popular in my field, and I did wear it to the admission interview. Oh well, different strokes for different folks.

Some of you guys are coming off as a bit ghey in this thread.

I got Lasik about 6 months ago and am very pleased. I would recommend it to anyone, especially now that they individually map your eye prior to surgery.
