What are your general comments?

"I think it was alright. The interviewers were very stone-faced and won't give you any inkling as to whether they like your answers or not. The only advice I can give is to go in confident and have explanations for any weaknesses on your application. Don't second guess any of your answers. I have a feeling they were trying to get me to second guess myself at one point, but hold true. " Report Response
