I am scheduled an interview with Information Systems on Friday. What should I do to prepare for the questions part?

How would you answer if they ask questions like SMU or NTU?

Please help!!

1. What should be the dress code? A formal pair of pants and white/coloured shirt, perhaps?
2. What are the questions that SMU interviewers would like to ask, apart from " Tell me about yourself" type of question?
3. What are the questions that u have been asked yourself? [ This question is specially directed to current/past SMU students ]
4. What are the qualities that SMU interviewers usually keep a look-out for?
5. How long does a typical interview session take?

Responses are greatly welcomed and appreciated. Thanks a bunch!
Question 1
Based on my personal experience, you should wear your clothes that best highlights your personality. For eg. if you are very outgoing, enthusiastic, hyper, wear a red T-Shirt or Blue Jeans for example. Of course, you must live up to your characteristics, else you'll better off wearing formal.

You'll definitely stand out from cookie-cutter formal clothes from the rest. How outstanding can you get if you wear formal like everyone else? Right?

Question 2
Depending on the panel, they'll like to ask vague questions.
For eg. "How many Pianos are there in Singapore?", "How may barrels of Tar required to make the roads of Singapore?", "How many manholes (drains) are there in Singapore?", "How many Macbook Pro owners in Singapore?"

The worst answer you can give them is a numerical answer right from the beginning. These questions are meant to highlight your thought process. They are really not interested in the correct answers. You'll wont get the correct answer anyways! So just give reasonable assumptions that would derive your numerical answer. So, you might say something like,

"How many MacBook Pro owners in Singapore?"
1. Assuming there the population of Singapore is 4 million, let's break them down into several demographics ...

2. Assuming that 95% of the population are literate. (eg. kids 3 to 12, teenagers 13 to 19, adults 20 to 70)

3. Out of this 95%, perhaps 70% are computer literate.

4. MacBook Pros are generally catered towards consumer use rather than corporate use, so assuming the bulk of the 70% are computers which are Windows-based, hence we would give MacBook Pros of about 5% out of 70%

.... ( you can take your time and give as many assumptions as possible, to highlight your thought process) - important!

Good Luck !
