Thank you for the encouragement!! I wish I had done this from the get-go, but navigating recruitment on top of school/work was overwhelming. I'll put in some more applications here and there and see what I hear back!

I sent 30+ applications during my master's. Got 10 test invites, 5 interviews and 1 offer. As others have mentioned it's a numbers game. Considering you went to final rounds to some T2/MBB it means that you are almost there, but something minor is lacking - try to find out what it is if you had any post-interview feedback.

I'm still looking for something full-time...do you think it's worth applying to other consulting firms that didn't recruit from my school even though this is a little outside of the normal recruitment timeline?

Yes. Don’t give up if that is what you want.

I can sympathize. I had four interviews lined up with IB right before the recession and I had to really work to get into consulting after they all fell through.
