There is almost always a question which is asked
"Do you want to ask anything?"

This is a very important question and should be prepared thoroughly.
The last 5-10% of every interview is perhaps the most important. You need to leave a strong final impression by asking good questions. You must ask at least one question. I you do not, your interviewer might assume that you are not very interested in attending the school.
You must, must, must finish strong!!!

Also the questions should be something relevant and not something which is:

1. not easily answered by checking a website
2. directly related to you and your goals
3. A desperate attempt to ask anything.

This is a great opportunity to showcase that you have done good research about the college:

You can prepare something from the following or may be add on to the list:
1. You can ask them a bit of detail about the courses which suit you or are in line with your experience.
2. You can ask them about the different committees in the college.
3. You cant tell them that you have read the things on the net, but want an in depth explanation.
4. About the alumni base
5. About the cultural and business events happening in the college.
6. How easily accessible are the professors to the students after the lectures.
7. Listen the answer carefully and may be ask a followup question to the answer
8. Do not ask for a feedback. You will come to know it sometime later. (Totally my opinion, people may agree or disagree)
9. May be gain some in depth knowledge about the grading system
10. Ask something about the exchange program

These are the few questions which I could come up with. Will try and add on to the list.
The fellow applicants also, please feel free to add on!
Happy preparing

Regards,
Ankur

Hello from the GMAT Club MBAbot!

Thanks to another GMAT Club member, I have just discovered this valuable topic, yet it had no discussion for over a year. I am now bumping it up - doing my job. I think you may find it valuable (esp those replies with Kudos).

Dear Champ!
I am sure once you get into some good college, then your life will be twice busy as of now.So, I still make an appeal that we would want you make fresh posts for interviews and essay writing strategies too.
Hope I haven't asked much.
Thanks
Celestial
