I have my test scheduled and want to know how conservative or casual would past test takers recommend dressing. And should I make it to the academy what's the dress code in OKC?

For the test... no dress code at all. Academy first day dress business casual. When I was there it was acceptable to wear jeans with a collared shirt, but I'd go with slacks for the first few days until you get acquainted.

Test: nobody cares. I think I wore jeans and a tshirt, but I can't remember. OKC you'll be expected to do business casual, as above posters stated. Jeans ARE acceptable. Most of us slid into jeans 4-5 days a week after the first week or so. Most wore khakis or better on PA day, but you don't need any ties or suits or dresses.

Hmmm, I was thinking of going with a black lace tube top and a burgundy corduroy pants, and a grey fedora

I wore flip flops, cargo shorts, and a t-shirt to the testing facility. I wore shorts and T-shirts/polo's at the academy some days and slacks the others. I think they were trying to get rid of people wearing shorts after I left though, but while I was there, no one said a single word to me or my classmates that did the same. At your facility, most don't say anything to you about wearing flip flops and shorts but might want to get CPC first before you do that just because unfortunately some CPS's judge you off that...

Or in some cases, the CPCs will harass you UNTIL you wear flip flops and shorts...
