    Does anyone know how we have to format the cover letter for B&M? Seeing as you write the text directly into the app do you have to formally address it, etc.?

    is anyone else massively disheartened about this whole process? i have an interview with JD but apart from that I've been rejected by 4 all like a few days after sending my apps, which I know means something is really wrong with my applications… except i literally have no idea what haha
    The fact that you have an interview with JD definitely indicates that something IS RIGHT with your application!

    All the best May i know whether these are summer or winter schemes?

    [QUOTE=thomasllf;51457615]Did anyone who applied to Cleary Gottlieb receive a receipt for their application?

    Cleary will likely be a rejection if you have not heard yet as their open day assessment is on November 10th (tomorrow). Sucks I know.

    I know, but JD was just a cover letter rather than any questions which has made me think thats where I'm going wrong! All for the winter schemes, but on some of them i think i ticked summer scheme as my second option x

    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
    I think because I don't do law there aren't many people at uni i can ask, the careers people seem very general… Thank you, thats really sweet of you, will message you

    Hey, trust me I know the feeling. It is way disheartening. May I ask when u applied for JD and when they got back to u?

    But upwards and onwards- We can do it Brucey, we can do it Bruce...BRUCE, BRUCE, BRUCE!!!
    I can't remember when I applied exactly but they sent me the request for a reference email within 4 days, and then I got an interview the day after my referee sent it. Hahaha i think i have to go watch that film now you've quoted it

    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
    No idea - I don't like the person in question very much so haven't spoken to her about it, it was just something I heard from a friend. I'll let you know if I hear anything though!

    Really? I sent my application 3 days ago... Are you sure they don't hold another assessment day? It seems odd that they wouldn't given the deadline for the summer vacation scheme is 28 Jan? Are you thinking of the winter vacation scheme, perhaps?

    Hey everyone, thought this thread is great to keep a tab on things/progress and law firm's outcomes!

    So far i've only applied for winter vac schemes seeing as i'm in my final year of law atm:
    First year I got a 2:2 unfortunately (all 2:2 bar one which was a borderline 2:1), second year I got a high 2:1 (several firsts with average 2:1s)

    I've been rejected by Stephenson Harwood and A&O already - I have also applied for Hogan Lovells, HSF, NRF, Jones Day and Clearly...

    All the best to everyone!

    Out of interest, when did you apply to Stephenson Harwood and how long did it take to hear back? Good luck for the rest of them!

    Anyone finding it pretty hard to narrow down firms to apply for?

    Hoping to boost my profile this year academically and otherwise and don't want to be ruled out of TC apps by loads of firms..

    For the Herbert Smith Freehills TC app, is the only question the one regarding extracurriculars? There don't seem to be any other open ended questions as to why HSF etc which seems odd, just checking I'm not missing anything? The question doesn't indicate a word limit either...

    I applied to SH on the 30th Oct and received the rejection on 10th Nov, so about 10/11days

    On another note, got rejected from Jones Day - not looking too optimistic for the remaining ones in all honesty...
