    I haven't heard yet. Not expecting much though as their application form was a pain in the arse.
    Ha! I thought the word limit was pretty harsh! When did you apply?

    It was so harsh, and the guidance from their head of grad recruitment says 'try and write more than 3 or 4 sentences.' In 60 words?!

    I applied beginning of January.

    I know!! How did you tackle the "summarise what makes withers stand out"? In 60 words? Feel free to PM me if you'd prefer (:

    I applied early Jan too

    Deadline is over so I guess it doesn't matter if people know what I've put it wasn't a great answer because there wasn't enough room for much detail. I wrote about the international scope of the work coupled with a client led expansion approach.

    Ugh looking at it now it just isn't very good.

    That sounds similar to what I did - did you tie is back to yourself? I literally just gave an overview of 3 points I felt made them stand out - so difficult to elaborate on anything.

    I'm sure your answer is ace!

    No I didn't tie it back to myself at all, I think when the world limit is that strict you just have to answer the question and not read other aspects into it. Who knows though

    Hi there!

    My deadline is 11th Feb.

    That's great advice, thanks! Can you recall how long you have to reply? I had one which was 2 minutes and another which was only 1 minute - makes all the difference in terms of pressure.
    Thank you for letting me know! Not heard of anyone hearing post-interview so maybe they respond after everyone has completed it? Who knows!

    It is 1 minute yes- I found that a real shock as my other was 2 and like you said it makes a difference. Best of luck!

    Hi guys, new to this thread. I've got an interview with Davis Polk next Monday. Has anybody ever had an insight or open day there before and able to tell me a bit about your experience of the firm? Would be hugely appreciated ! Thanks, James.
    Went to an open day at the firm a few weeks ago - was unfortunately rejected for the vac scheme, so well done!

    Everyone was lovely, make sure you know that the firm is essentially a M&A/Capital Markets firm. I'm sure you'll be fine with all the general stuff, but they are looking for self-starters and people who know the direction that they want to take their career.
