    Hey! Did you get a confirmation email when you submitted your application and was the test link sent to you straight away? I submitted 3 days ago and no email to do the test. Thanks.
    Hi yeah I got a confirmation email pretty soon after sending it and then had to wait all of yesterday, receiving my invitation to do the VRT at 10:50 today

    Well, got the JD interview. Seriously dreading it.

    I've also asked them if I could be transferred to a later scheme (I know this is not a good thing to do), so yeah.

    No but from what I've read in previous posts I think it can take a while

    I managed to get a vacation scheme in the summer but unfortunately didn't get offered a training contract. This is now my third time applying and I'm feeling really disheartened and losing hope very quickly. Is there anyone that can lend some advice who was in the same position? Trying to keep my head up but tbh it's making me pretty unhappy.

    Hey congrats on your interview! I got an email about an interview yesterday too!! 😊

    I did manage to book a slot but there were only 3 left I think, so they may have been taken. I don't know how the system works but maybe they will add some more slots of these have been filled? Or, as you mentioned, it may be worth giving grad recruitment a ring. *
    Hey was this a vacation scheme for winter or summer? Also when did you apply?

    Hey guys.

    Just wondering what the word limit is for the white & case vac scheme form- can't see any word limits for the questions! Thanks

    I'm in a similar position, got a vac scheme this easter but wasn't offered a TC, lost count of what year of applications I'm on - 4 years I think. We will get there! I feel like I've gotten closer each year so who knows, hopefully this year will be our year!

    If a firm has a late Jan/early Feb deadline and I'll be getting my January exam grades before these deadlines, should I wait until I get my grades to apply or should I apply earlier? I know some firms prefer earlier applicants, but due to my module choices I'm confident that my grades in January will be better than my previous grades, making my overall application more impressive.

    What are your previous grades like?

    Mostly 2:1s, except a 47 in Land Law (which is just tragic) brings my average down to 58/59%. That's the main reason I want to wait until after January as I feel confident it will bring me up to a 2:1 overall.

    I think if the firm states they don't do rolling recruitment then apply once you have your results. But if they do state rolling recruitment, it's probably worthwhile applying earlier unless any of the firms are known to be more academically focused.

    Alright, I'll have a look at what each firm says. Thanks!
