    what is the dress code for the citizenshi interview for both men and women. I have an interview coming up soon. So was curious what the dress code was?

    You should dress as if it is a very serious job interview
    (that is an interview for job like bank managers, IT
    director etc not like a job interview for cashier in a
    supermarket)

    There's no official dress code, but shorts, open toes shoes, t-shirts etc.. are not recommended. You can't go wrong with business casual.

    Sneakers (fairly new), dress pants, nice polo, but then I am in California and we prefer a bit more casual.

    Compared to others, I felt overdressed.

    Can one wear clothese that can provide a lot of information on civic tests?

    For one thing, one can have a US flag on his shirt for question"what are three colors of the national flag?"

    No US flag thongs allowed at interview.

    No, that's cheating, you would be deported.
    Also, if you wear a US flag pin with Obama's face on, that's 2 hints and it could be criminal charges.... :)

    When I arrived at my interview, I felt like an idiot.
    I was the ONLY one wearing shirt/tie/long pants.
    There were roughly 70 other people waiting for N400
    naturalisation interviews. Most were dresses casually,
    as if they're at the local shopping mall. A few ladies
    were wearing traditional Arab dresses(sorry, but I don't
    know what those are called)

    There were two women who were very revealing clothes.
    All the men stared at her enormous cleavage. (myself
    including, even though I'm a happily married man) Paris
    Hilton couldn't dress more provcatively herself.

    That afternoon, one of those well-endowed ladies was
    sitting next to me at the oath ceremony. She was
    ahead of me when receiving the certificates. I noticed the
    USCIS disctric office director staring at her magnificent
    cleavage for at least 10 seconds. :(

    As Bobsmyth suggested you can't go wrong with Business Casuals or if you like you can go in a suit. Depends on how concious you are about being dressed up :)

    Only in America will you find a woman in hijab and a woman with revealing clothes in same room..one extreme to another.:D

    Ok, ok..you can find this in other countries as well, but you get the point.

    that didn't even occur to me until you mentioned it just now.

    two extremes indeed! :)

    Only in America! :) It's a wonderful country! :)
