It's a type of interview where you have to solve a provided business problem using math and logic in front of the interviewer. For example, "Company XYZ is experiencing declining profits despite increasing revenue. How would you go about investigating this?" Usually they don't give you all the data up front, so you have to ask the right questions as well. It's quite intimidating, but can be somewhat enjoyable once you get the hang of it.

Half of my clients were out of town this week, and the other half are out of town next week.

A thank you and one follow-up is fine, but more than that is desperate. So save your one call and make it count. Wait until the end of next week, and call to check in (if you haven't heard before then). Then, even if you hear nothing back, just let it go. If they want to move forward with you, they'll let you know, and if they don't, more phone calls won't change that.

Whatever you do don't call. If push comes to shove then send a email for follow up

Thanks for the feedback, guys.

Good for you.

And you and I are right about the thank you emails. You always send one, regardless of the economy.
