    Well that's it, I'm officially done. I received offers from Jones Day, Allen & Overy, Freshfields, Slaughter and May and Clifford Chance.

    I will be on the Slaughter and May Easter scheme and I have opted to accept A&O and Freshfields for summer.

    I will be at A&O on the 22 June - 10 July scheme and Freshfields on the 13 July - 31 July scheme.

    If anybody here is on any of these schemes, let me know, we could all arrange a meet-up on the schemes. Would be nice to put a face to the usernames!

    Good luck with the rest of your applications/interviews everybody.
    Congratulations - that is an impressive list of firms!

    Did you make it?!

    Worst comes to the worst they will reschedule you for another day. But I suspect they will swap the assessments around, and you will just have to do your interview at the end of the day instead (if they can fit you in).

    They'll understand! Good luck for the AC
    They did indeed swap it round! Thanks guys. It went okay, on balance don't think I've got this one, but always good practice

    Sorry to hear that. Do you know who BLP's online test provider is? And is the Verbal Analysis test they want you to do the same as a verbal reasoning? Thanks

    I'm doing mine tomorrow - but it definitely sounds like the video interviews are trickier than the telephone interviews were last year!

    Heya sure. There's nothing much to prepare for the written case study (it's the least challenging one out of all the ACs I have been to) - no specific requirement of knowledge, very fun to do. But keep track of time though because you've only got 1 hr to read everything and write.

    Followed by an interview with HR - they're very nice and ask the usual why law, why their firm, what are your traits kind of questions.

    It is very manageable and the Ashurst people are all very nice so don't worry at all. All the best!

    Thank you my experience was that it was very personal, like they want to get to know you as a person. I had no tricky questions, however another candidate who was interviewed at the same time was quizzed on economics/politics because I think that was their degree subject!
