Question scheduling an interview: early, middle, or late?

what do you all think? should you interview early and get it over with, somewhere in the middle of all the other candidates, or towards the end to try to be as "memorable" as possible?

If its a prog you really want, then schedule in the middle. The point being you can schedule others earlier, and use them as great prep for that one. You'll be more confident and well versed in your responses by then.
