Tips for how to not mess up a final round interview? Lol

I was on the hiring panel many times, here are some of the reasons I said no to candidates and tips:
1) don’t “psst” at your interviewers then ask them to give you hits on the case
2) don’t tell them you want to work at their company bc your family lives in that town, have a reason related to the company
3) don’t tell your interviewers you’re billing time to clients while you are out interviewing
4) don’t dismiss your interviewers and HR
5) don’t be sexist
6) if you need to find the bathroom, don’t barge into conference rooms without knocking, and def apologize for interrupting regardless of gender (in America we respect women too, not just men)
7) don’t take work calls during interview break

Top MBAs, don’t automatically mean common sense and respect 🤦‍♀️

Who is the final round with? PPMD? I got rejected after the final round.

Interview for what

Do well? What do you want us to say

The final round, especially with PPMD, usually is a fit round, to see if you can work the hours needed while not being an a hole.
