"Good. It was my first interview, so there are always cobwebs when going through the motions for the first time, but I didn't find the interview stressful. However, I feel comfortable in groups. For others who aren't extroverted, I can see how the setup would be intimidating. Their response time is fast and much appreciated. I was notified about their decision within 14 days.
