    "Please tell us about a recent commercial deal in the press that has captured your interest. If you had to choose a side, which would it be and why?"

    Is the second part of this question asking whether I'd rather be, for instance, the acquiring company or the target company? Bit bemused by it

    Anyone heard from Mishcon post video interview?
    No.. Starting to think maybe it's a bad sign. Have you?

    My efforts so far, mix of winter and summer vac schemes (I forget exactly which is which..!). I'm a final year non-lawyer:

    Hogan Lovells - WG test --> Phone interview --> Final assessment day --> Rejection
    CMS Cameron McKenna - WG test done
    Jones Day - Interview --> Waiting for result
    HSF - Tests done, waiting on outcome
    Weil - Waiting
    Skadden - Waiting
    Cleary Gottlieb - They asked for my results transcript..don't know if that's good or bad
    Mishcon de Reya - Video interview --> Assessment day to come probably in the new year
    Travers Smith - Interview booked for in a few days time
    White and Case - Waiting
    DLA Piper - Waiting but they're not rolling so will be a while

    If anyone has questions which I might be any help with feel free to ask
    NotMikeRoss - can I ask how long you had to wait after your video interview to hear that you had a place at the assessment centre (Mishcon)?

    I haven't heard and I submitted mine on the 16th of Jan. I know they were still inviting people to take video interview on Monday just passed so maybe they are waiting to view those ones? That other person you have asked I think didnt hear back for three weeks! But that was before Christmas so could be different for those invited earlier.

    When did you submit yours? I was confident about mine so would be disappointed if I didn't get through!

    I submitted mine on the 7th so I'm pretty apprehensive now!! Yeah I think that's true I'm sure they had less interviews to look through before Christmas so maybe it's just taking longer.. Haha I'm glad yours went well, mine was awful but I'd just like to know either way!

    Quick question, the DLA app has a 50 word space to write my interests/activities. Would you this would include my positions of responsibility?
    I didn't. Just did a short list of my extracurricular activities etc.

    I'm in my second year of non-law so not applying for that much right now but I will in october. I just wondered, you seemed to get such an impressive number of first/second interviews, do you have any previous experience in law at all? I don't and I'm worried it will hinder my applications, even though I am trying to get some for this summer.

    Managed to get a White & Case application in at the eleventh hour. Wasn't able to give it the same degree of thought as any of my others though, so not getting my hopes up.

    I did the exact same thing. Bashed it out in an hour or two. I just did it for the sake of it. Not overly bothered since they do not recruit from vac scheme (i think).

    Hey, I applied on the 16th Jan and heard back just before 5pm today. I applied to the Northern scheme too (not sure if that makes a difference).
    Thank you! I applied to the London scheme so maybe it takes a bit longer!
