    Hey All,
    I wanted to compile all tips for conducting interviews, whether it be pre-interview preparation, or post-interview inquiries, or interview tips. If you have something to suggest, like what to bring, or what kind of questions to ask, or how to do the thank-you note at the end, or what to say when asked this or that, or whatever, just post it here.

    1. Know everything that you can about the school and know why you belong at that school, not just med school in general.
    2. Know why you belong in med school in general.
    3. Realize that your interviewer knows more than you about med school and can spot BS-ing.
    4. Don't be afraid to admit when you do not know something.
    5. Don't bring up controversial topics unnecessarily -- that's just playing with fire.
