Prepare by going through the school's web site thoroughly. It isn't great when you ask a question that is answered 3 times on the school's site. At the same time, going through the site may trigger some questions in your mind. Write them down and take them with you.

It's a little difficult to suggest specific questions, because your questions should be guided by your interests, but here are some general questions I tend to ask when visiting schools, and I have received some very enlightening answers:

1) What is a typical day like for a first year or second year student?
2) Do professors see teaching an integrated approach to busienss, one that emphasizes the interconnection of business functions, as part of their job? Or are they teaching their specific class without a larger framerwork? If it is interconnected, how do they coordinate with other professors?
3) How do professors balance teaching and research?
4) How are interview slots assigned? Is there biddign proces? what is it?

Good luck!
