    Hello TSRians. lol

    Erm. I was reading through one of King's College's college prospectuses and I saw this particular statement, and i quote:

    As we are seeking to identify your suitability for a clinical environment, we expect our interviewees to adopt the dress code required of clinical medical students at King's.
    SOURCE: http://www.kcl.ac.uk/ugp10/programme/687

    What do they mean by: "dress code required for clinical med students"?

    I means, do they expect us to turn up in a white coat whilst wearing surgical gloves with a shiny steth. swinging round our necks for the interview??

    Since when did a (clean) suit stop being suitable for an interview.

    I don't whether if King's is attempting to display some form of academic humour, or if there's been a typo/mistake.

    Someone please clarify this ambiguous phrase. Be nice.

    Suit, but not pinstripe or something too city. 17 and 18 year olds look silly in pinstripes.
