    are many people still waiting on BLP/Simmons and Simmons/HSF after doing their tests? Did them all a week ago and haven't heard anything...
    I'm waiting on HSF post tests for Winter VS. I'm assuming no news is goods news (for now anyway) as I've got friends who have been rejected after the taking the tests. Fingers crossed!

    When did you send off these applications and were they for winter or summer vac schemes? Hope you get some good news soon!
    All sent in October for Winter Schemes, except for Freshfields, which was for a TC

    Clearly will be a rejection as their assessment open day is on Monday (Nov 10th) and so far I have not heard anything.

    Hope that helps!

    Sorry to hear that, good luck with your other applications! I applied to both about 5 weeks ago.

    Hello my fellow lawyers-to be.

    I was just wondering if anyone has applied to wragge law for their winter placement and or has any experience with their verbal reasoning test or any verbal reasoning tests for that matter as quite frankly I suck at them.

    Thanks

    How many apps have people sent/planning to send?

    Seems pretty quiet on here..

    Also, am I right in saying that rejection from a vac scheme bars you from making a TC app to that firm until final year?

    Did anyone who applied to Cleary Gottlieb receive a receipt for their application?

    Also, has anyone had an interview at Jones Day? If so, have you got any tips?

    Thanks! Do you happen to know how long it took for her to hear? I know they recruit on a rolling basis, so not sure how long it'll take them. Good luck for your application - let me know if you hear anything

    Hey - when did you hear back from Jones Day and when did you apply? Still not heard back from there though I applied near the closing date for the winter vacation scheme.

    Thanks

    I applied for the 2015 summer vacation scheme around 3 weeks ago, and I heard back from them about a week after my academic reference was sent.

    I know exactly how you feel, if you can get a careers adviser to go through them with you maybe that'd help. I'm happy to review one with you as well - this is my second year of applying after not getting a TC from a vac scheme last year. Feel free to pm me
