What are the questions usually askes during interviews?

What's the best approach to answering those questions?

If the interviewer asks: do you have any questions? What kind of questions should we ask? and what kinds of questions should be avoided?

    just be yourself; usually the interviews are just conversations. They are actually enjoyable

    My Princeton interview: (I'm a RD applicant)

    Interviewer: 20 something--just graduated in the past few years, very excited about Princeton.

    very few questions, he ended up asking me what other interviewers had asked because he couldn't think of any questions.

    He took no notes and would not accept a resume or DVD of my piano performance because he was not allowed to ( you might want to bring resume anyhow)

    I told him I was applying to Yale, Harvard and U Chicago as well. He asked "Why Princton?--Chicago and Princeton seem to be at the bottom of the list."

    Asked me in detail about ECs.

    Sorry can't remeber much more. But try to have fun and try to be truly interested in what they're saying.
