    my first interview is in a week and i'm curious as to how much prep other people put into theirs
    my plan is to review my applicaton for a few hours...review the schools website for a few hours...and then go over the major ethics topics so I know the points I want to make if asked....is this enough? i dont want to be underprepared
    just wondering what other successful or unsuccessful students have done

    in addition to what everyone else above me said, I:
    1) search SDN forums for the name of the school - you find a lot of really interesting things
    2) I try to thing up 2-3 questions about the school...
    its really awkward at the end of the interview (or in my case, 10 minutes into it) when the interviewer goes... "Ok what can I tell you about the school" or "do you have any questions..."
