Do you think that a small gift could be misconstrued as being inappropriate?

If you work at Victoria's Secret, umm probably a bad idea. It could be appropriate, but depending on the gift. I would maybe go the route of a gift that adds humor to the situation as opposed to a gift that is more serious in nature.

It's an artwork print reproduction. Although lingerie could make for a very unique story and it would probably make me a memorable candidate.

Umm...I wouldn't. I would probably mention it to show a little humor and that you remembered. For example, if it's a Monet reproduction. I almost brought the Monet reproduction that you asked for last time, but I'm working on sending you the original. That's just me. Of course, it depends on the person. A more serious person would probably find that dumb.

In addition to a portfolio/padfolio containing extra copies of my resume, business cards, etc., I also bring a bottle of water as well. Talking about yourself for upwards of an hour straight invariably dries out your mouth and it's nice to have water with you.

I had a great experience with an interview prep / mock interview service. I decided to invest in that instead of the GMAT prep courses and materials, knowing that interviewing was my weaker area. Ended up with offers from my top two targets and \$ from one. The connections I made with other MBAs through the service helped enormously during FY recruiting. For reference, I'm a female MBA who was recruiting for startups / VC in New York and San Francisco.

Not sure if my coach is still offering mock interviews, but happy to discuss the process with gmatclub members. Just message me.

What do you think?
Under normal B2B circumstance gifts are fine but B-school admission it isn't.
If you are working with a company that sells stuff online give him/her a discount code.Do not bring anything physical at the interview stage,but if it is a first interaction (pre-application visit)then you can bring in some samples.
Hope this helps.
