I don't know what the rules are in the USA (where you are) but in the UK, those questions would not be asked and would break several employment laws/rules. Employers here are not allowed to question someone's family situation or, in the case of a woman, their plans for children. I can't imagine what relevance they thought your tuition fees had.
I would not work for anyone whose interview included no questions or information about the position. If that happened in an interview, after the first couple of questions, I would probably ask "Please can we move on to discussing the actual position and my specific experience, qualifications and skills for that position?"
