In an interview, what are good questions to ask the interviewer? Current students, what did you ask?

Please help. I do not want to get caught asking dumb questions!

Ask them why they picked school X and how their experiences at school X have helped them thus far in their careers.

I always ask if their expectations had been met so far and, in their opinion, what kind of person would not "fit in" at their school. Fluff stuff, but sometimes it leads to some pretty interesting talking points.

1) Ask them about DILO - Day in Life of?? whats average day like?
2) The offers the interviewer had got when he/she was a candidate? and why did he/she chose "this" school over the rest?

Be careful... if you say this quickly, they might think you are talking about something else.

heh, sudden.

Anyway, this is great question. I am in the process of interviewing/talking to current students and alumni and this list is certainly useful since the questions would be somewhat similar. I also asked the following questions:

1. What were your expectations going into school X?
2. In what way did school X fulfill/exceed those expectations? in what ways did it not?

Hey Raabenb,

Hope you're doing well and that you'll enjoy the reception. I have actually just graduated from Tuck, feel free to pm me if you want some (true) details also it's quite a late notice. I was actually very involved in this forum during my gmat quest but during the past 2 years at Tuck I had been too busy to follow up with GMATClub. I am just getting back at it right now.
