I thought I bombed the phone but still got to onsite. What should I expect? I am relatively well prepared for LC type questions and going through system design primer and designing data intensive applications book for the next 3 wks.

I am especially worried about afternoon though (fully aware odds of getting there are not that great but feel like I have more control there). I am more from full stack background and the types of projects/problem I can talk about might not be interesting for them and afraid that they might think that I lack technical depth. What area should I focus on? Ex) I did tailor my answers and stories for the leadership principles for Amazon interviews and got an offer. Is there a specific theme I should focus on? BTW, are they mostly behavioral rounds or system design/tech discussion?

I am really interested in joining TS and getting experience in trading firms as I am in NYC now, but am afraid that approaching it like typical tech company interview might not be enough.
