LizzyBee Posted February 23, 2012 Share Posted February 23, 2012 My daughter is a finalist in the Scholars Program (a scholarship program) at UNCG. The interview process starts with a reception on Sunday evening and ends at 4:45 on Monday. On Monday, she has a mock class, group interviews, and individual interviews. There is a parent's program that run simultaneously with the kids' interview process. She's our oldest, so this is our first run at this process. She wants to get a skirt set that she saw in the jr. dept. at Macy's. Macy's jr. clothes are not well constructed, but this line of clothes is supposed to convey a young hip professional look. Since the interviews last all day, I'm concerned about her being comfortable - including wearing comfy shoes. So, I'm thinking her black dress pants with a nice blouse would be a better choice. She has two pairs; one is longer for wearing with heels that she could wear for the reception on Sunday, and another pair that she could wear with flats on Monday. What do you all think? What do other students wear for these things? Also, what kind of shoes? She has ballet flats, but I don't think they're very comfortable. She has fake sperries, but they go with jeans and khakis, not dress pants. She has Tom's, but they have a bold pattern on them that I think is too loud. I'm thinking we should probably look for new shoes that are dressy but comfortable. Maybe ballet flats with elastic in the sides so they fit better than her other ones. For dh and me, we were thinking khakis with a button down shirt and possibly a tie for dh. Should he wear a suit for the reception on Sunday. I was thinking dark dress pants with a nice sweater for me. I have a nice dress that I could wear for the reception on Sunday, or I could wear a different pair of dress pants with a blouse or sweater. What do you think? We could really use some scholarship money (who couldn't, right? :-), so I don't want to mess this up for her. Thanks! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
