    Finally going to MEPS this weekend! 

    Based on the information pamphlet I received from my Recruiter on proper attire, it states "collar shirt" or business casual. I personally do not own any collar shirts, I also tend to get cold fairly quickly and based on my research MEPS location/s tends to be very cold, and since I will be taking my ASVAB along with getting a physical (meaning I will be spending a long time there) it only makes sense to wear a long sleeved (business casual appropriate shirt). Any advice? I simply would not like to be dismissed as I read online someone did for wearing a long sleeve shirt.

    Business casual is generally considered a collared shirt/slacks. There's nothing that says that shirt has to be short sleeved. Where did you see this claim that an applicant was dismissed for wearing a long sleeved shirt? That sounds like complete BS to me. I'm betting they got kicked out for some reason they don't want to admit to, but it's just easier to say it was about the shirt.

    When I went through meps no one enforced any dress code. Some people were dressed nicely others dressed in hoodies and sweatpants. I dressed in a comfy t-shirt and comfy pants since I had to be there early in the morning and stay all day. But you should dress however your recruiter tells you to.

    I have to be there early as well and the last thing I want to be is uncomfortable. I will follow your advice, because I technically won't be swearing in that day so why dress all "fancy." I will also be taking my test, and being comfortable is a must imo.

    On Y/A which after further research is not a very reliable source.

    Completely unreliable.  This particular forum, however, is made up of people that have some connection to the CG, active duty, reservists, vets, spouses, etc.  You can be fairly sure that the info you get here will be accurate.
