Has anyone been on one of these? What kind of things do you do on them?
I did this workshop last Christmas. All in all it was enjoyable so you should have a good time with the firm. From memory I believe there were about thirty or so students (about 70% from Oxbridge) and the majority of our time was spent either in classroom-like tutorials or socialising. In addition one one of the two days we we spent a few hours in pairs shadowing a senior associate (who was very busy and frightfully annoyed that he had to entertain us and answer our questions!).
The dinner parties were very good and I advise you to take every opportunity to get to know the people you meet (esp' the graduate recruitment team). Enjoy!
