How long should I wait after R2 until I can assume that it's a no?

My interview for Bain was 8/3, should I give up now? I thought the average wait time was 1-2 days.

In a similar boat, but I saw on the other thread a user said the partner who called him said more calls would be going out early this week. Keeping my fingers crossed

There's a million things that can delay when an offer is made, and as a candidate you have zero visibility. If your interview was Wednesday 8/3, it's only been a couple workdays since the interview so I wouldn't panic

If you don't hear anything by EOD Thursday then a quick note to your recruiter on Friday morning could be appropriate

Is reaching out to your interviewers directly to follow up bad practice?
