How frustrating! Though obviously closing apps doesn't mean there's no hope, because the application process is so long.
Also, numbers-wise, I was told that there are 12 positions for consultancy in London, and I was about the 5th or 6th person recruited.
I got my AC after badgering. I emailed them a couple of times, and then emailed them notifying them that I was going to be out of the country for a month over Christmas. I think this focussed them, because the next day I was offered an AC. I imagine somebody dropped out, or something, and I was first in their mind because I'd contacted them.
I wouldn't email/phone them incessantly, but if it's been a couple of weeks since you last contacted them, it's worthwhile communicating in some way, even if it's just to ask how long they would estimate until you'll get one, or giving some dates that you can't do, which shows you're thinking about it (though wouldn't recommend if you can actually do those dates because then you might be shooting yourself in the foot
