I just had my second interview about 10 days ago. Today I finally (the follow-up was expected to come up in 7 days actually) got an email from the recruiter in which the recruiter started by asking me how I find the interview with the interviewers. Then in the second paragraph, they told me they couldn't make a decision right now because they are interviewing one more candidate but will get in touch with me next week.
Are they trying to probe for my interest in the position or are they just starting a conversation? Anyway, how should I reply to them to increase my chance of getting the offer?
