I actually did a pretty poor job of preparing for most of my interviews. I would look on interviewfeedback.com (it's on the fritz this year, unfortunately) for any tips I could glean and maybe check out SDN for good measure. I would also try to thoroughly read the school's webpage for insight into the place and sometimes bring a printout of some web pages or their bulletin (if I had it) with me. I tried to think of answers to typical questions, and I never did any mock interviews or anything. In hindsight this was a mistake since a few times I ended up putting my foot in my mouth so many times I swear it bruised the back of my throat, but on the other hand, I had some really first-rate interviews through spontaneity and candor.

I think it would be great if we could get a list started as to what people did to prepare for an interview. For example: certain books, magazines, articles or even websites. Thanks everybody.

Also - when your interviewers ask why X school is a good fit for you, don't just focus on what their school has to offer you (ex. I like PBL) - tell them what YOU have to offer THEM.
