No, it is not necessary nor expected for students to dress up for an appointment; however we do encourage business casual or business professional attire for mock interview appointments so your career advisor can provide feedback on your attire. Plus, the more you practice in what you'll actually be wearing, the more confident you'll feel for your real interview.
