I was really nervous last tuesday expecting the result, but not getting it was important for me to remember that my big picture was OK, and I hope that this is what counts!!
I've talked to some people that failed at the CIS part, some of them recognized that they were acting a little bit robotic, with blunted empathy, not responding to the SPs emotions with emotions, but instead with a memorized sentence like that of CSEVideos "I'm sorry to hear this, blah blah blah".. I think that would be a red flag.. So, the way you've said your sentence is not a major concern, what would be of more importance is if it sounded natural or not..
Thanks. I will be waiting for your good news this wesdnesday.
