UVA Darden or Georgetown McDonough part-time for a B4 consultant targeting FAANG, but still wanting MBB as a potential option?

UVA Pros: Higher ranking, great professors, and a tight knit community

Georgetown Pros: More established part-time program, campus for out of class collab, focus on collab not competition, feels like a good fit especially with its diversity, opportunity to have classes with full time students, lecture+case+experiential learning, and more electives to choose from

I finished the recruiter, and hiring manager interviews, both went very well. The hiring manager wants to fly me to their location to “show me the site” but I haven’t heard back for almost a week.
When I let the recruiter know I had other opportunities and needed an update, they said they were finalizing getting the panel together, so it sounds like a group interview.
This is for a senior role at a rapidly growing startup, do I just need to chill?

Accenture is recruiting across most roles, levels and NA geos - DM me if interested.
