I had a really negative experience today. I went in for my last round of interviews and I felt I completely bombed it. At one point I was answering one of the behavioral questions and the Managing Director completely zoned out. The only time he responded back was when he apologized for having a "short attention span" after the senior analyst repeated to him my question. Not sure if I should take this as a sign of rejection? Overall, I feel very discouraged because I really tried to do well.

I feel you 100%. I got rejected today after my superday last week for a firm I thought I had a great shot with. Sorry to hear about your experience.
