I had mine on campus with an adcomm and like DF said prepare for it like a business interview. I felt like mine sucked because I think my interviewer was slightly awkward reading off rote questions. As for questions, it was literally every stock interview question you can imagine:
Tell me about job A
Tell me about job B
Tell me about job C
Why did you choose your undergrad
Why did you choose your major
Tell me about a time you faced adversity
Tell me about your GPA (I am a supersplitter and when you go there they have you write down your GPA/LSAT and what areas of law you are interested in)
Why are you interested in X type of law
Tell me an instance where you showed leadership
To be honest it really fucking sucked for me because it just felt so forced. They are all given a handbook on how to interview applicants and I feel like my interviewer didn't deviate in the slightest from a predefined script.
