As the interviews start kicking into high gear soon, what is everyone’s best questions to ask the school’s representatives when they ask that question that always is coming: “Do you have any questions for us?” As with job interviews, I am assuming that the questions you ask can either be a big plus on your application or a big red flag. Thought it might be good to hear what some people with more experience in these interviews than myself had to offer for a question brainstorming session. So, which are the best in your opinion?

Candidates stress out about asking the "right" questions in preparation for that terrifying moment when a business school interviewer asks "Do you have any question for us?" Their brains shut down in the process. First, ask yourself what you honestly want to know about the school to help you decide if spending one or two years there is the best investment of your time and money.

I think effective questions share similar attributes -- they indicate that you have done plenty of research, and are gathering additional information that will help you to make the most of your time in the program if accepted, given your unique academic goals and career aims.

For example, let's assume you are applying to HBS and you've been reading up on recent changes in the first year curriculum. One of those innovations is the FIELD Course which includes a global immersion experience. You are a candidate who is interested in working as a consultant in emerging markets in the future. You might ask the following:

"I have been reading about the new FIELD Course in year one. As I mentioned, I am interested in working in an emerging market -- I'd like to know a little more about the January global immersion experience -- specifically I am wondering if students are permitted to choose the country they will work in."

That question meets all of the criteria I described of an effective question to ask a business school interviewer. You can use the attributes I listed to test your list of questions and identify the ones that are the strongest contenders.

Best of luck on your interviews!

Honestly, ask them a question you want to know the answer to. The answer to this question should not be easily answerable within 30 seconds of googling.
