Need Management Consulting Help

I'm currently a rising senior at Harvard University thinking about applying to management consulting positions among others. I was wondering if the MeFi community had any advice or tips regarding what to do to prepare for the interview and what Management Consulting firms look for in an applicant.

How do I keep my anger in check?

Often, when I disagree with, or I'm arguing with someone, they'll ask me "Why are you so angry?" I don't FEEL all that angry, but when I look back at it I certainly act like an ass, saying things I don't mean. I'm not sure what exactly to call this, so I'm falling short on searching for advice. Thanks!
