It's been 12 days. I emailed the recruiter after 7 days and that prompted no response by either email or phone.

It all makes me feel like I've done something terribly wrong, but I thought the interviews went pretty well. I have fully accepted that not getting the offer is by far the most likely outcome, but it still feels weird. Any thoughts on what might be going on?

This is also part of the MBA recruiting cycle (which would tend to be a well-oiled machine I would think), so it's not some off timing/special situation

Hi,

Why don't you just reach out to them? You want to be a consultant - you should learn how to get the information!

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

This is surprising. Unlikely you did something "terribly wrong" though, these are the easiest cases and lead to a quick call "thank you, sorry, good luck".

I'd reach out again to the recruiting team. Nothing to lose

Have you considered going in person to the office and speaking to the recruiter?
