What are your general comments?

"The whole day was great, but I felt like I didnt click with my interviewers. It was much more "scheduled" than other interviews I went to that ran over. We stuck to the time limit. I liked both interviewers, it's just that something seemed lacking in our chemistry. Maybe I just feel that in retrospect because I didnt get in. I got waitlisted, but they waitlist everyone."
