Crisper on the case ... try to get more specific and direct feedback. Worked at M for 20 years ... that feedback could mean many things, some of which could be helpful as you prepare. Sometimes means “can’t think of anything wrong, just not enough right” Im which case I’d try to be higher energy, creative, take some risk with your ideas. Sometimes means “wasn’t quite smart enough”, in which case I’d try to burnish your academic performance credentials and achievements a bit more.

Depends if there was any pre-heating and on how high the heat has been since. If you’ve been exposed to 350F, I reckon that’s good enough to make it real crispy.

Just had an interview with a jeopardy multi day winner, multiple degrees and majors from top schools, ex-mbb, and held a major position in a major US city governance, while now being a director at a F50 company. All before the age of 35. Makes me just so feel so dumb and insignificant despite knowing that's probably not healthy haha. Anyone else have a similar experience? What was that peron's background?
