I know that preparing for interviews can seem like a waste of time sometimes. In the basic sense, it is just having a conversation, so why not just go in with the attitude of: "I'm just gonna go in there, be myself, answer their questions with great stories, and knock the interviewer's socks off."

Fall quarter hosts a huge recruitment rush (don't worry though - there are opportunities in the winter and spring too!), so it's good to be a well polished interviewee.
