There are plenty of threads discussing interview clothes, what to pack for interviews, etc etc...

But, I am confused, what do you actually bring TO the interview?

Should I bring a copy of my application, is that expected? For job interviews, you should bring a copy of your resume, so I don't know if this is along the same lines.

I saw a post from 2002 where the general consensus is NO to backpacks. However, I would feel silly with a briefcase...I am too young to pull that off, and I don't want to look like an over eager pre-law student. Do I even need to bring anything? A notebook...a folder...or is it assumed the med school provides these?

They have all that application stuff on file, no need to bring it. In fact, I wouldn't even bring anything into the interview room with you. Treat it as a "friendly" conversation. I know if you have to check out of the hotel before your interview, schools will let you bring your luggage, bags, and everything else into the building and you can pick it up before you leave.

No backpacks, but what I do recommend is a leather portfolio with a notepad like this

You can store a pen and any loose papers you get during the interview. Also, it has a pad for writing your own notes on the school or for the interview.
