I have a BIG interview next week. As I am preping for this event, I am sort of drawing a blank on what are some good, intelligent questions to ask the interviewer.

I have most of the information about the program, so I dont want to ask anything about that.

Any insights?

Also, how many questions should I ask? 2 - 3?

Thanks.

I like to ask about alumni. You can take it in many directions.

eg if its a student "how much have you interacted with the alumni and how important are they in the job search process?"

eg if its an adcom "how do you reach out to alumni to keep them involved?" etc etc

Also, i think it was helpful that my answers to the basic questions I ususally discussed my sources ie alumni, talking to students, class visits, so by the end of the interview the interviewer actually said something like "you already know so much about our school and have talked to so many people you probably don't have any questions" so I can get away with just asking 1 or 2 questions that are more insightful rather than 4 or 5 'basic' questions.

'04 is recent enough that you can ask him about classes, professors and programs at the school where his answers will still be relevant. I like to tailor questions to what has been discussed during the interview, so try to observe some points as you talk, and include a couple of follow-ups that pertain to your own situation.

Once you've chosen your shortlist of questions, do the following:

Spend lots of time browsing the school's site to see if you can find an answer to your questions. If it's in there and you ask it, it won't look good.

Other than that, try to make questions which are relevant for you, not just general questions. Eg: I'm from Lesotho. I would like to help organize the trek/hop/whatever to Lesotho but I'd also like to attend the China one, since I'm interested in Asia. Can it be done?

Cheers. L.

I don't think you should go in to the interview thinking you only need two or three questions prepared. For the most part you should try to just have a conversation, in which case you need an unlimited number of questions ready to go. Don't write off asking questions about the program, even if you know the answer.
