College interviews for the class of 2024 are almost over.
But after each interview, I couldn't help but wonder:

"Everyone keeps saying that interviews carry little to no weight unless one completely messes up.
What is the definition of messing up?
What are some examples of "glaring red flags"?"

I would be grateful if you answered these questions for the future generations of CCers.
