    Congrats! When did you apply and do you know if they have ACs throughout Feb? My application has been under review for a week now.

    Hey! I applied well before Christmas, sat the online tests just after Christmas then got an offer to attend an AC towards the end of January. When selecting an AC I only had two options of dates and presumed they were coming to the end of interviewing. However whilst at the assessment day the Graduate Recruitment Adviser stated they still had a lot of interviewing to do, in addition I could select from any of the three summer schemes, presumably meaning none are yet full. As I applied so early I presume my AC was one of the first, so I wouldn't be phased by the fact your application is still under review! My assessment centre was less than two weeks from the day I got the offer so there's still plenty of time, they only invite 8 at a time.

    Is it wishful thinking that I'm thinking that they did actually read my app with interest and they are actually inviting me to apply again?

    I had my interview for the VS today and it was 20 minutes long. Is yours for a London or Regional scheme?

    Any rejections or any more video interviews from Hill Dickinson or Boodle?
    I made an absolute woeful hash of the video interview about a week and a bit ago but strangely I am yet to hear from them, so I'm thinking that perhaps they do everyone and send out all for the rejections and acceptances at once

    Ah, I am applying to the regional scheme so that is probably the difference. I believe that the business exercise is a bit like an AC.

    Hi, I applied to DLA Sheffield vs and I have my interview next week, do you have any tips? I've never done a Skype interview before! Also can I ask if they asked competency or commercial questions? Or a mix of both? Thanks!

    Compare that to the following which was received within a few days of submission.

    Dear XYZ

    Further to your recent application for a summer vacation scheme with Norton Rose Fulbright LLP, I am sorry to inform you that we are unable to proceed with your application on this occasion. As I am sure you understand, each year we receive a high volume of applications and competition for places is fierce.

    Due to the large number of applications we receive, we are unfortunately unable to offer feedback at this stage.

    I am sorry not to be able to give you a more positive reply and wish you all the best for your future career.

    Hi

    Just wondering if anyone is still waiting on Latham? Saw there were a few rejections yesterday and I still haven't received anything (applied beginning of January).
    Was wondering if the rejection emails were loaded onto the apply4law portal page too? Thinking I may have lost the PFO in my spam folder!
    Thanks!

    I applied end of November too, I don't know whether to just sit and wait then rather than emailing (they did say that they shortlist vac scheme places in feb and its nearly mid feb and I still haven't heard)

    good luck

    DLA Piper PFO :/

    Anyone heard from BLP post-verbal reasoning test? (Took it around 3 weeks ago)
    I haven't heard back either. With waves of rejection, I have come to realise that no news is good news. Guess we are still in the running!
