For a CB? Why would you skip? If you had time to go on the CB but told them you'll pass on lunch, then yeah that's pretty stupid.

OK thanks. School actually starts the next day so skipping lunch would allow me to take an earlier flight up but w/e.

Forget school. Your potential future job comes first.

Be normal and sociable. Don't spill anything.

What usually happens after lunch? Do they just say goodbye or do you guys walk back to the firm?

Also do firms usually take a taxi to the restaurant or walk? What should I do with my padfolio?

Lunch is usually with young associates who have little say in hiring decisions and are just happy to get a free meal. Don't worry about it. You can bring your padfolio with you or leave it at the main desk. You will walk if the restaurant is close or you will take a cab if it's far. Afterwords, you'll do whatever makes sense for everybody.

Not really. It's usually nothing. Just relax.

The fact that you are asking all these questions and are this paranoid about something as simple as eating a meal is distressing.
