(I have had an account on this site before but have only been lurking recently!)
Just a thread for general chat - all Inn's students are of course welcome for chat/questions about scholarships, dining and BPTC shenanigans.
I'm a member of Lincoln's Inn and received my BPTC scholarship interview letter on Saturday, is anyone else attending an interview with Lincoln's Inn?

Mine is earlier than that thank god, but I believe they are all in the evening (or at most, late afternoon).
Not that prestigious but I have a good CV and various/varied experiences so hopefully my 'merit' is to their liking!
Where do you go to Uni? Oh I'm sure that will impress - nay - DAZZLE them! (But seriously... if you want to be taken seriously then I would lean towards a more traditional colour...!)

Hi guys, I had an interview at Lincoln's this week.
I'm not going to lie, it was tough and I got a bit of a grilling but I think that this was the case for everybody. I had the chance to speak to some of the other candidates both before and after the interviews and I get the impression that people largely had the same sort of experience.
If I'd not have seen any other candidates I would have come out thinking it went terribly. I came out of the room with a smile on my face, however, and there were a few people who came out looking as if they were about to burst into tears! So, all things relative, it probably went ok.
edit: I'm surprised you only got asked about mooting. I got asked about my last moot and they seemed satisfied with my answer and didn't have anything to say so moved on. I got asked about an area of law which I found difficult but enjoyed, I got asked to come up with an idea for a piece of parliament legislation, and I also spent a lot of time talking about my job.
I wish that my watch hadn't stopped so I knew exactly how long that interview was!
