What to wear for a college interview – any suggestions?

I've got my first college interview lined up next week, and I'm sweating over what to wear. Should I go full business formal, or is something semi-formal okay? If you've had an interview, what did you wear and how did it go? Looking for some advice so I can make a good first impression without overdoing it.

Congratulations on getting your college interview! This is your chance to make a personal connection and leave a positive impression. It's generally best to aim for business casual attire. For instance, a nice pair of slacks and a button-up shirt or blouse would be appropriate. If you feel more comfortable with a blazer, go for it, but it's not strictly necessary. Avoid clothing that is too casual like jeans, t-shirts, or sneakers. It's about finding a balance where you look polished and professional without being overly formal.

Remember, the goal is to look put-together, which will help you feel your best during the interview. Good luck!
