    LPs will form 50% of your total interviewing time. Do prepare meaningful stuff. The issue is that you’re going to have to try telling a different story to each set of interviewers, so prepare 2-3 different stories for each round.

    Leadership principles are half of it. Absolutely do prepare these.

    I got a DP question for one of my rounds recently, just FYI. Wasn't a hard one though, LC medium.

      Also, make sure to prepare well for leadership principles. They aren't joking when they say they will drill into those - spent around 15 minutes each round on them. 35 minutes for coding, 5-10 for questions. This was for SDE2.
