How did you prepare for the interview?

"Read a medical-school interview guide, reviewed questions on SDN, came up with situations to talk about for various questions and practiced with a friend. The practicing was the most helpful as the interviewers managed to ask most questions slightly differently than expected, so it helped to have to practice answering questions I hadn't prepared for."
