    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...
    That's all it was for the vac scheme.


    Has anyone heard back from HSF after the test? If so, when did you take it?

    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..
    Yeah really struggling with this, still. I'm kinda putting all my eggs in one basket and desperately hoping I get a VS and then a TC off the back of that, rather than having to do TC applications next year

    Has anyone heard back from NRF or Ashurst about the winter vac scheme?
    Rejection from NRF winter vac scheme yesterday- definitely not going my way at the moment...

    Has anyone got any advice for a JD or a Shearman interview? There's a bit online, but it'd be great to hear from people who've done the interview already this year! JD is for summer, Shearman for winter.

    For me, so far:

    Bird & Bird -- waiting post-app
    Macfarlanes -- waiting post-app
    Freshfields -- waiting post-app
    SH -- waiting post-app
    NRF -- waiting post-app
    Davis Polk -- waiting post-app
    Ashurst -- waiting post-app (only submitted yesterday, oops )

    The dead silence is making me uneasy. I'm not expecting many (if any!) positive outcomes because I didn't do very well at A-level (BBB...). Here's hoping they overlook my UCAS points and look at my uni grades instead (1st class three years in a row). It's frustrating how many firms have a 320 ucas point cut-off. If only I'd done a little bit better. :nooo:

    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?
    Yes I mean for winter - sorry that wasn't clear(y)!

    Hey everyone, first post on here. I only applied to one spring vac scheme - I'm a final year non-law entrant - as it was the only one that matched up with my uni's spring break.

    Anyone else applied for the Jones Day spring one, or heard back? I went down on the Wednesday a few weeks ago, interviewed and they emailed me on the Thursday saying I had a place. Anyone joining me in London in March?

    Just received an email from SH stating that they have read my application for the winter scheme with interest. The email states that whilst they may not offer me a place on the winter scheme, apparently 400 people have applied for 8 places, they would still like to consider me for the spring scheme, summer scheme and a training contract. Has anybody else received this email?
