    Not heard either. From last year, the gap between invitation and interview was pretty short.

    Keep watching your e-mail and hoping, just like me!

    Nothing here either.

    Whilst it's obviously possible, with all the chancery applicants on here I would be a little surprised if they'd sent invites and we hadn't heard.

    Haven't heard anything here either, thought it had just been a rejection by silence but they could be running behind schedule

    Has anybody heard from Ten Old Square? Interviews are supposedly taking place on Thursday, so I guess I can take that as a rejection by silence.
    Nothing yet for me either.

    Agreed. Then again, there's always the Radcliffe fiasco

    Edit: Thinking about it, do keep an eye on the post as well - if I remember correctly, that's how they send their mini rejections, so not sure if it's the same for pupillage.

    I think I got my mini response from them last year by email and post, but definitely by email (I just searched my inbox).

    I guess we shall probably see tomorrow.

    Indeed.

    I'm also calling Radcliffe tomorrow to clarify, so I'll post afterwards (if I don't get anything in the morning mail). I know it's obviously a rejection, but I would at least like some confirmation over the phone, considering most others got both an email and a letter.

    Just checked. For Ten Old Square in 2015, it was 26th January for interviews on 29th. Don't panic!

    If a cover letter is explicitly for email, do people usually treat it as though it is to be sent by post?

    By which I mean, using addresses, telling them to find a CV 'enclosed', that sort of thing?

    Are Pump Court Tax expecting applications by email or by post? Their website says

    "... applications for pupillage beginning in October 2017 should be made by covering letter and CV, addressed to the Pupillage Secretary and marked “Pupillage Application”, by Monday 1 February 2016", and "All enquiries relating to pupillages and mini-pupillages should, where possible, be made by e-mail to [email protected]", but is an application an 'enquiry'?

    I usually include addresses and a scanned signature but tell them to find the CV attached rather than enclosed.

    No idea but it's a very good question. I am also yet to find out what format Gray's Inn Tax want the applications in as I didn't have time this week.

    My view would be that it isn't, and I think that is supported by the layout of the page: if they wanted you to submit pupillage applications by email I would expect to see the email address nearer to the application instructions.

    If you're having doubts, an enquiry about their expected application medium is certainly an enquiry, and could therefore presumably be made by email to that address.

    Hm, interesting, thanks.

    I think they provide an email address on the Pupillage Gateway site that applications can be sent to...

    XXIV rejections out via email, personalised (though they misspelled my name )

    Also called Radcliffe, it's a rejection, but apparently they're having a 'second round of rejections' being sent out today/tomorrow, which is probably why some of us hadn't heard anything yet. They've taken approx 16 people through to interviews.

    Pump Court Tax have said email applications are fine, though I'll likely double mine in the post as well, just in case.

    Good thing I called them then, as I still haven't received anything.

    Edit: Nevermind, just received it.

    Emailed Radcliffe and got the rejection email through. Has anyone heard anything from 10 Old Square yet?

    Not a peep, but I think I've nearly worn out my f5 key.

    There's no email address for Laurent Sykes on the website. Do you know where we're supposed to send it? Only email addresses I can find on their website are [email protected] and [email protected]
