It is very important that you come to your interview prepared with questions for the interviewers. Having prepared questions shows the panel that you are keenly interested in what they do, specifically, at their university.
Remember that people like to talk about what they know! By having insightful questions prepared, you are setting the stage for the interviewers to tell you many important and helpful details about their process, and their educational facility. Keep the majority of your questions academically related. Asking too much about the culture, social life, and extra-curricular activities may cause you to appear unfocused.
Here are some ideas:
- If you could give me any piece of advice, what would that be?
- Is there anything in my application, or anything that I said in today's interview, that I can clarify for you?
- What is the most important thing I should know about my first week at your school, should I be accepted?
- Can you tell me about some of the exciting opportunities I could take advantage of, should I attend your university?
- What do you feel is the most unique offering at your school, compared to others in the area?
