Hi,

You need to follow up with a principal, but that's a common situation for NY. Chances of being invited even with a referral there are pretty low.

Ex-MBB, Experienced Hire; I will teach you not only the how, but also the why of case interviews

Have you followed-up? If not, you definitely should.

PS: Not every referral leads to an interview, even from Principals.
