We had our YC interview on Friday and were super confused after it. We sort of expected that. We talked to over a dozen YC founders and most of them said “You’ll leave confused”. However, it was an unexpected kind of confusion. We weren’t confused because we didn’t know what they thought about us. We were confused because the interview was nothing like what we prepared for. The preparation we needed couldn’t be done two weeks before a YC interview (well.. it shouldn’t). It should be done at the idea stage of your company.
