    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
    how long after submitting your app for Cleary Gottlieb did you hear from them?

    Has anyone else taken the tests for HSF and still not heard back from them concerning the winter vac scheme? I'm only slightly concerned because I had some issues with my test that I thought were resolved but now it's been so long I'm wondering if not. On their website it says assessments for their winter vac scheme are early november?

    For me, so far:

    Bird & Bird -- waiting post-app
    Macfarlanes -- waiting post-app
    Freshfields -- TC interview
    SH -- waiting post-app
    NRF -- waiting post-app
    Davis Polk -- on hold until Jan
    SullCrom -- reviewed& keeping my application until Jan
    Update on my 'list'. SullCrom said my application had been reviewed by the recruitment committee and they've decided to keep it until a further shortlist in January. I'm not holding out much hope, but I guess I survived the pre-shortlist shortlist? Davis Polk has also put me on hold until Jan but that seemed more automated rather than an actual response.

    I had an e-mail from Macfarlanes saying "We are considering your application for a place on one of our vacation schemes and as part of this process we would like you to attend an open day here. The object of the day will be to give you a chance to find out more about the firm and for us to get to know you".

    They mention that there will be group + written exercises and a partner interview. Is this their assessment day equivalent? From the way that the e-mail was worded it seemed like I was on a waiting list of sorts.

    Has anyone else got this e-mail?

    From the Macfarlanes FAQ section of their website:
    "What is an open day?
    An open day is our assessment day for the vacation schemes."

    Even if anyone did know the percentile (which is unlikely), you won't know how your individual score/result ranks as a percentile.

    Try not to get too concerned about what it might/might not be as it's very difficult to know how the results are interpreted and then used without knowing the firm's process thoroughly and being qualified in test administration.

    Finally sent my first application! Took me about 10 minutes to bring myself to click "submit" - this is all far too real! :puke:
    I was wondering if you'd heard anything from Mishcon yet? I've not heard a thing :/ and sent my application off just over 3 weeks ago

    Initially I was relieved to have a break from the tedious competency questions etc, but actually the fact it's so open-ended is a bit frustrating
