    I applied mid-Jan and got my invite less than 24 hours later. All their A/Cs are this month so I imagine they have quite a few dates left. All the best!
    Thank you, you too!

    I got a PFO from Fieldfisher as well. I really want to know what this objective criteria is because I thought it was my best application. Maybe I could have included more of the firm's cases but there's only so much you can include in 250 words.
    Ditto! Felt mine was quite detailed as well but since the assessors are partners and senior associates I guess that it is fair since it is up to them to make the decision sooner or later, subjective as it may be.

    Hi, I was wondering if anyone knows what factors firms consider in determining whether an applicant makes it from first interview to AC.
    Is it based on the interview alone or do they review it in conjunction with the paper app?
    Thanks

    It will probably help to scan B&M's website in great detail/note down the competencies that they look for - Don't lose sight of the role of a trainee.

    Probably best to go with your first instinct. Have the mindset of not trying to do too much as a trainee or too little. Try to find that balance when answering. There are some questions which are quite obviously outside the remit of a trainee, i.e attempting to delegate to others.

    That's good to hear! Out of curiosity, when did you submit your application? I submitted mine on the 17th of Jan and have not heard anything

    I sent mine to B&M on 28th December and not a single word - at best I'm in the 'meh if we have any scraps left at the end we will consider him', at worst I've been PFO'd and they just haven't got round to emailing me yet!

    Has noone heard from Sidley Austin yet?
