    Am I right in thinking someone posted on here saying 15nbs will let us know tomorrow? I am on a 15 hour flight with no wifi tomorrow so it's going to be a long, anxious time for me!

    Can anybody shed any light on popular current legal affairs topics discussed at interviews this year? I'm thinking:

    - Anonymity of those accused of sexual offences
    - Rights and wrongs of the High Court's judgment on the "absence from school for family holidays" case

    And then my mind goes a little blank.
    I had a question regarding the prosecution of elderly people for historic sex offences. All the rest have been covered above I think...

    Hello

    Does anyone have any experience of the format of a St John's Buildings (Manchester) second round interview? I have been asked to arrive 45 minutes early so I am assuming I will be asked to do some form of advocacy exercise. Just wanted to check if anyone has ever had a second round interview with them.

    Thank you

    Could anyone let me know their pupilage stats e.g. applied for, got to first round, got to second round, offers etc? First year applying and honestly a little be disheartened by the rejections...

    Don't be disheartened! Last year was my first time applying, which was my BPTC year I got nothing but rejections both on and off the gateway, I was SO DEPRESSED and felt like giving up but don't!!!

    This year I have had 1 first round off the gateway and 3 off the gateway! And I still have 3 places to hear back from! So do not loose hope! If you're like me last year and are on your BPTC year often the reason you're not getting interviews is because you don't score enough 'points' on either the education part (as you haven't got your bar results yet) or the 'experience' points bit, as they like people who have had experience actually working in the law e.g. paralegalling!

    I know a person who did not get any interviews for 4 years! Then they got 10 first rounds and 9 second rounds in their 5th year of applying and got pupillage!

    So do not give up hope especially when it's only your first year!!!

    I'm pre-BPTC and I've received 8 first rounds off gateway (20 applications) and 0 on gateway (12 applications) with 4 sets to hear back from (2 gateway, 2 non-gateway). No second rounds so far which is starting to give me a bit of a complex.

    Still no news regarding:
    1 Pump Court
    4 Brick Court

    ?

    Does anybody know whether these sets tend to interview on weekdays or weekends?

    Still nothing from 1 Pump Court for me! Can't help with the others I'm afraid. Also waiting on Farringdon, 15NBS and Nexus.

    It's my first time applying too, and I did the BPTC this year so hopefully am finished it pending results. I applied to 11 this year in the GW and 1 outside - lesson learned to apply to a lot more next time! I was rejected from my one outside the GW. I've been rejected from 7 in the GW, had one first round and waiting to hear if I made it to the second round, and am still waiting on 1PC, Blackfriars, and Wilberforce.

    It is really disheartening. Fingers crossed that things look up for you, this time or next.

    I'm in my first year applying too, in the first year of a part time BPTC. I applied to roughly 20 sets altogether (the full 12 on gateway and around 8 off). I got 1 interview for a gateway set and I am still waiting on 1 non gateway (Nexus) and 3 Gateway (New Court, Blackfriars and 15 Winckley Square). The constant rejections really get to you but I try to tell myself that its all part of the process and you only need that one set to like you!

    This is the first year I have applied for pupillage having just completed the GDL. I applied to 8 sets (5 Gateway, 3 Non-Gateway). I had first round interviews at 7 sets, second round interviews at 4 and I am still waiting to hear from the eighth.
