How badly do you want this particular job? If it is your dream job, you are in a really small industry or you just out right want it, then wait it out. Continue to follow up, expressing your continued interest, sharing that you are willing to wait and do what it takes to make it happen.
I wish there were consistencies across all hiring organizations that we could promise you, but that's not how it goes.
Always ask as many questions about what you can expect - timelines, contacts to expect, preferred methods of follow up.
