Was very happy from my on campus interview. I am not sure why some posters here said that a non admissions person interviews on campus, but mine was with a very nice admissions officer. The interview was 45 min long and used some of the questios from page 1 of this thread so I highly recommend going over them beforehand. Overall I felt I was very engaging with her and was able to convey everything I wanted to. I also geared my interview towards the AJD and asked specific questions about the program. She didnt have any new information that is not on the website but I still wanted to separate myself as an AJD candidate. She asked me aspects questions about my résumé ( I have 8+ years of combined work and military experience) so I also recommend being ready to give information on pervious positions.
Overall, I think the biggest advice I could give is to show interest in the school and program besides it being " a really good school ". My 'in' was the AJD (which is true, it's prob 90% of wh I am applying to NU) so I would think hard of why. Lastly, I think it should also be mentioned that you made the trip to Chicago just for the oppertunity to interview with them, spent time and money. I don't think it's something that should be taken for granted.
At the end of the interview the admissions officer gave me her card and I sent her a thank you email a few hours later.
Good luck! Chicago is really nice. Just really cold... (And it's only November!!)
