One of my friends at Loyola-NO said that a chick in his section came dressed in goth everyday complete with the piercings in mouth and nose.

Suit minus the tie.  I usually take my tie off as I am leaving my office.

Have to wear suit to work and go to classes in the evening.

Jeans and t-shirts, A-MEN.

I am looking forward to not wearing office attire on a daily basis.

I'll dress like it's Saturday and I'm out grocery shopping.

Jeans/capris, t-shirt/sweater, flip-flops/flats.

It'll be so nice not to have to go through the "Is this too casual? Does it need to be ironed?" converation every morning.

I can't wait to ditch my suits. I've been getting dressed up for work for way too long. So, it's jeans/t-shirts etc.  all the way for me.  Since I'll be in Buffalo, I'll need to throw in a sweater or two plus some warm boots, but I cannot wait to not have to wear suits anymore. Did I already say that?

I think jeans pretty much every day.  Probably not t-shirts and sweatshirts, though.  Cute tops or sweaters.  Yeah... until finals time.

Most people dress the same as they did in undergrad, "dressing up" only when there is a big event where they want to impress someone.  Wearing a sport coat to law school (at least in the Midwest) will have you labeled "tool" faster than you can sew elbow patches on tweed!

I think wearing sport coat everyday anywhere will have you labeled as a tool. Unless, of course, it is required, or maybe part of your work attire. 

I wear jeans, shorts, T's, sweats, or whatever I feel like. Just like pretty much everyone else.  No need to "dress for success", when your success is even judged until finals.  Just my $.02
