At HBS they just wear black tie formal, except for Friday..white tie formal

But for real, you can wear whatever you want. You’ve exercised good enough judgment to gain admissions, don’t doubt yourself now (regardless of the program)

If you’re really nervous, just go with slacks and a button down w/ a jacket over the back of your chair and a tie in your backpack on day 1. After that, you can adjust based on peers
