How did you prepare for the interview?

"I made a google doc with general ideas for common questions like why usc, why medicine, and an issue with medicine/healthcare. Very bare bones. Also, I watched short, unbiased YT videos on healthcare in the US because I knew that was an issue I would want to talk about if an interviewer asked what I think needs fixing (and this question was asked!)"
