I have an alumni interview quite soon, and I'm really nervous about it.
What kinds of questions should I ask? It's in Starbucks, so is it okay to dress relatively casually?
ANY TIPS AT ALL would be appreciated.

Casual...but that doesnt mean jeans and a t-shirt. A nice pair of slacks and a well-fitting sweater (dont forget decent shoes, no tennis shoes....and a belt that matches the shoes...) should be fine.
Just remember its always better to overdress than under-dress.
Be sure to have a few questions ready for you to ask the interviewer. It lets them know that you are seriously interested in Cornell and have thought about it beforehand...but not menial questions that you could of found online or on Cornell's website (How many students are at Cornell?)

Anyone can have an alumni interview. You will be contacted for one.

No, I'm applying to CAS. A day or so after I submitted part 2 online, someone emailed me, and we set up a date.
Thanks for the fashion advice, folks. No brown belt with my black shoes...
I don't understand what people mean by "good questions." What types of questions might this be? I know not to ask, "What's the median SAT" or "So, what's the chance I could transfer into Harvard?" (just kidding...)
But what counts as a good question? Would it be fine just to ask about that person's experience? What types of things did others ask?

You're in luck, I just interviewed for cornell arts and sciences two days ago. The alumnus was very friendly, but a little phony. I think the interview went poorly (because even though it was my third, I was still nervous). Anyways, just relax, and try to impress them with vocabulary (that always works). Just try to be likable!

What's the deal w/ CAS interviews? The Red Book says we don't have them, and so does the AdCom, but why are people having them??????

I was accepted to CAS. I didn't have an interview or anything.
