Do rely on your cohorts for information. If possible, find out who else interviewed with the organization so that you can keep each other in the loop as to when you’ve heard back from the recruiter(s). In general, communication at a given school should take place around the same time. Some companies will invite candidates back in waves, or in sequence (a company has a set number of openings and won’t invite the next person on the list unless the one before him or her has turned down the invitation). If jobs are in very different groups within the company (finance, marketing, operations), the timing for follow-up interviews may be all over the map, depending on that group’s needs, when the group’s managers are available to conduct the second rounds and so on.
