    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

    Hi LGF92,

    Won't be joining you for the Spring Scheme, but have an interview for the Jones Day Summer Vac Scheme on Monday and wondered if you had any tips you would share?
    I'm a non-law grad just started on my GDL with a previous career behind me. Have previously got to last round of T/C apps with Eversheds and Pinsent Masons and both times got feedback that they felt they would be taking too much of a risk on my related commercial, but not commercial law, experience. Shame neither of them thought offering me a vac sheme was a good solution As you'd expect I'm desperate to secure a vac scheme as I can't really remedy the lack of experience without one. Any tips would be very gratefully received! Thanks

    Hi guys! I was wondering if anyone could help me out with my query? Does anyone know the exact wording of HSF's open ended question? I haven't applied for a winter VAC scheme, but I'm thinking of applying for a summer one.

    Thanks for reading and wish everyone the best of luck for their applications!

    Hi, I've got a phone interview for Hogan Lovells next week. I was wondering what sort of questions they asked you and how it went.

    Thanks

    Hey, does anyone know what an acceptable grade is for the Watson Glaser test? Is there a threshold above which you'd be invited for the next stage of the application process?

    It will vary from firm to firm. You don't get a percentage or pass rate, you will get a percentile (you are ranked against other people taking the test). The benchmark of that percentile will be different from firm to firm.

    This is not true for Hogan Lovells, they have a set pass rate that each potential candidate must achieve. Confirmed with graduate recruitment

    No I haven't completed the test. I'm guessing that's a link that they send you?
