I have my interview over lunch on Friday. Was wondering about the etiquettes for the meeting like who picks up the tab(or people go 50/50), do we take a gift for the interviewer etc etc. Appreciate any inputs.

Thanks

I guess it should be ok if you insist on paying and depending on your interviewers response, things get settled. I don't think a gift is appropriate at this point.

For which school is this interview.(Kellogg ??)

my suggestion, offer to pay the bill (be sincere about it!) and see what the interviewer says. If they refuse, gently offer again and then leave it at that (some interviewers may be offended if you push too hard). I think that's the most gracious thing to do.

Pssst.... if you read the fine print, it was part of the application fee.
Just kidding, offer to pay and if the interviewer refuses just move on. In most cases, I think the interviewer will pay. I had a meeting with a CMU alum who refused to let me pay. Apparently, you need all the money you can get your hands on when it comes to paying for B-School.
