No self awareness that maybe you weren't the best candidate?

Your guess is wrong. You were probably coming off as a nervous wreck/socially incompetent law student because you over-analyze shit. Or as the previous poster mentioned, there were likely better candidates. It's laughable to suggest that you've "learned a lesson" because one interviewier yawned and you haven't heard anything in one week's time.

No, I don't think that I came off as nervous or over-anxious, at all. I have been told I Interview very well.

The lesson is to strategize and be ready to increase the energy level on the room if I see this happening again at other interviews (not sure how . . . Be ready with jokes?). Also, they are going to be on-campus at a few schools still, so I would say I'm not out, but I didn't knock their socks off. I think that because this was pre-OCI, I was hopeful, but nbd.

Never hurts to throw a few jokes out there to really get things shaking.

You did not learn the correct lesson.

Real talk: interviewees don't get offers for all sorts of reasons. About the worst thing you can do is to focus in on one (likely irrelevant) thing, assume that that thing was the reason you didn't get an offer, and then change your interviewing approach in response to that thing. You're headed down a path toward making yourself a worse interviewer.
