Going to New York next week to check out the grad school program I've been accepted to. What should I look for/what questions should I ask/etc?

Got into the Media, Culture & Communications Masters program in the Steinhardt school at NYU. It's my top choice. Weirdly enough haven't received any financial info from the school yet but as it is a private school and a humanities field, I am not hopeful.
I've made a request to sit in on some classes, also will be meeting with the department advisor. I requested a meeting with the financial aid person for the department too, not sure if that will happen. I'll hopefully be sitting in on some classes for the two days I'm there and have also requested the chance to talk with some current students who are ideally have the same interests as me.
What kind of questions should I be asking these people? When it comes to sitting in on the classes, what should I look for?
