Grain of Salt Disclaimer: speculation.

From what I've gathered, networking is what you make out of it. So, "what are the chances...of landing a "real" interview?" The odds of getting an "official" on-the-books interview is directly proportional to what kind of relationship you foster with the mock interviewer. So treat it as if it is a first stage interview that you were lucky to get through school connections. It's what it is.

Build a good rapport, then follow up on it. You can't do anymore, you shouldn't do any less.
