Facebook hire or reject?

I had 4 rounds of interviews onsite:

1. Behavioral : Ok. (10 minutes left after all soft skill questions and the guy asked me a Dynamic programming medium. Solved it and Coded well but then he asked me to prove it by dry running it but I couldn’t do that part)

2. Coding: Good
3. Coding: Not good.
4. Design: Great

What would be the outcome?

    Nope. Perfection is required. Apparently they only hire Gods and Goddesses.

    So, passing 2.5 out of 4 rounds at FB. That would be a "Try again next year"

    If you were asked to prove correctness by dry running your code, it's usually a hint that you screwed up somewhere. The interviewer is hoping that you'll notice the bug as you dry run and fix it.
    It could go either way but I'm leaning towards reject.

      I wrote exactly the same code on my computer after getting back from interview and it worked perfectly.

      Did you test for all edge cases?

    I thinks quite possible for Yes. Behavioral asks coding when behavioral is good. Then 10-15 for possible coding. To get more data pint

      2 coding rounds: I was able to complete the code and run testcases
      1 coding round: I finished coding but had no time to run the testcases
      Design round: I know I didn’t perform well as I had some brain freeze moments

    Reject. Even one mistake will get a reject.

    Lol no way you solved dp medium correctly in less than 10 min unless you've seen it. But from the sound of it, if you couldn't dry run it, I'm guessing you probably didn't get it correct
