Are interviews 1 on 1 or multiple people on one?

it varies, but for the most part (based on where I interviewed), it is 1-1

Depends, even at one school. Often, if you interview early, the adcoms will be training new interviewers, so you'll have two people sitting in to interview you, but generally only one will ask the questions. At least, that's been my experience at two schools. The other places, it's all been one-on-one, but I know some schools do panel interviews.

And some schools, like Northwestern, do group interviews. Mine was 3 on 3.

I've had panel 3-1 but most were multiple 1-1 interviews per school. By multiple, I mean maximum two or three.
