My mock interview went very poorly. What are people doing to prepare? I'm not really unsocial in person, but I shut down when I'm put on the spot in an interview situation.

It should be noted that Dunbar's is the dive-iest dive I've ever seen.
Oh god, it makes me feel dirty just walking in there. And bring cash, they don't take plastic.

Just do the reading the day before its due. If you have time between classes you should take advantage of that to read for the next day. Also, for one of the tougher classes, I would meet with a group of people to discuss the reading for about an hour before the class.
I don't make my own outlines. I suggest getting a good outline from your mentor or some upperclass friends near the start of the semester (preferably recent and from the same professor) and then just updating it with anything new/different the professor says. It will save you a lot of time and typing. I also found that not needing to type everything that was said let me actually think about what was being said and absord it better and/or gave me more time to play the dumb default games on my computer. Do yourself a favor and don't do the latter.
Once finals are a few weeks away, make sure the outlines are in order and buy a commercial outline or supplement to help you answer any questions you have once you start really reviewing for finals. I began my major review a week or two before finals (I was not good about reviewing during the semester, but I would recommend some review to make sure everything fits together). Then for the week or so before finals and during finals I became a hermit, devoting almost all my time to studying, reviewing outlines, reading supplements, and taking practice tests. Probably better to do a little bit more during the semester and a little bit less during those last weeks, but that basic structure served me well.
