Dear folks,

someone I worked with connected me to a member of an admissions comittee of a b-school I would really like to attend.

I do have a chance to have a phone call with said person, but have not been in such a situtiation before.
I am very exicted about the oppurtunity, but I also don´t want to ask the wrong questions.
Could you give me some guidance? :)

Best regards,
Arro

You want to avoid asking questions you could have found the answer to yourself. One good area for questions are those where you are asking for their advice or opinion -- after all, there's no way to get that info except by speaking to them directly! If you find something interesting on their site, via a visit to the school or via a conversation you've already had with someone associated with the school (current student, alumni, etc) you could also reference that but go even deeper to learn more. Again, you want to be careful to avoid asking anything you could have easily found out on their website etc. But referencing what you've already learned & then going DEEPER with additional questions that build on what you've already learned can be a great approach - and it also gives you the opportunity to let them know what you've already done to learn about the school. Good luck!
