    Going to the compsci applicant day at Warwick and I was just going to wear jeans and a hoodie but my parents are telling me I should be wearing a shirt and tie. It's not an interview or anything, I already have an offer, so that seems like it'd be ridiculously overdressed.

    Jeans and a t-shirt, as long as they're clean and not ripped, is more than good enough.

    Smart casual, don't wear a tie! Just some clean jeans and t-shirt as innerspeakers said. That's what guys at the Exeter Open Day wore

    Thanks for the answers.

    Do people usually take their parents to these things?

    Yes. In my experience (from working as a student ambassador at various applicant days) about 75% of people attending the applicant days bring parents. Others bring friends. Very few that I've seen come alone.

    Most people do, a few people don't. I think you're overthinking this too much if you're worried about what to wear and bringing your parents, do whatever you're comfortable with

    Be comfortable, no one will remember who you are when you're there. No need to wear a tie. Perhaps smart casual - I wore a shirt and jeans for me applicant day last year.

    That's interesting. I've been to all of mine alone (Billy no mates ). My parents were like 'people go with their parents?!'. Maybe their attitude is a working class thing. Lmao.

    T-shirt and trousers will do
