I just bring a leather padfolio with a notebook and a pen. Oh and mosts schools want you to bring a picture of yourself with your name and AMCAS ID # on the back.

i didn't bring my primary or secondary app...i brought my laptop with me, though, which does contain those files. on the actual interview day, i just had photos, publications, pen, and a cell phone.

I brought myself.

I started with bringing my apps and a notepad, etc., but then I realized I didn't really need it. Maybe having those things makes some people feel at ease. I don't see any problem with bringing a leather portfolio along or nothing at all. It's up to you. Whatever makes you comfortable.

having some water in interviews was way more valuable than anything else

Bring a pen. Anything more is a prop.
