"You had best un-f*ck yourself or I will unscrew your head and sh*t down your neck"

There are lots of questions that one can ask at OCI. You can always ask the interviewer why they chose the firm--it gives him/her an opportunity to tell you a little about him/herself and what about the firm attracted him/her. You can also ask about the firm's growth prospects--it shows that you are interested in where the firm is headed. You can ask about whether there are any formal mentoring/training programs. If international work is important to you, ask how much of the work is cross-border. In short, there are any number of questions that you can ask. Your school's OCS should have some sort of handout on interviewing and what kinds of questions to ask.
A few rules of thumb, though: avoid asking questions about salary, benefits, etc. (that is for after you get an offer) and also avoid asking any questions that you can answer easily by simply looking at the firm's website.
Its not that easy to be specific when all the firms seem to be the same
Terrible advice. Unless the interviewer is new to the firm, do not ask "why did you choose this firm". Why, because 200 other interviewees have asked that already. Also do not ask "does your firm offer formal training", because every firm offers formal training. Be more specific with your questions.
