    I was rejected by Linklaters within two weeks - so they definitely have been rejecting people.
    Hey, was just wondering if this is post-interview?

    I only applied for 5 schemes and now thinking I should have done more, although as I am working full-time and GDL-ing part-time it wasn't really an option I have only had one reply - a rejection from Olswang. I had thought they'd forgotten about me as I applied in November and I only heard yesterday! I'm hoping that means they actually read my application rather than immediately dismissing it due to my terrible A-Levels. The others are:

    Addleshaw Goddard (through BPP Access to Law)
    RPC (through BPP Access to Law)
    Bristows Spring Workshop - Bristol
    Bond Dickinson - Bristol

    Has anyone heard from any of the above? I did apply right before the deadline so I am not too hopeful, but I really want Bristows.

    When did you apply? I've not heard anything from them at all since like 30th of Jan
    Well their ACs only began on the 29th of January and they've got applications to deal with that were sent right from the word go. It won't be what you want to hear but be patient, a reply will come.

    From what I hear, it's quite an eccentric interview, so be prepared for anything.

    It's only 30 minutes, so there's a limit to how painful it can be

    I had two with them last year as I applied straight for a TC. From speaking to others who did their vac scheme, the first interview I did seems fairly similar to that of a vacation scheme interview (was with one partner).

    Spoke about my background/interests/hobbies
    Spoke about previous work experience
    A lot of competencies
    Why law as a career/why commercial law/why did you choose law as a subject to study
    Why Travers Smith
    Where else have you applied (important - I messed this up in final TC interview & they didn't like it)

    Then a couple of questions were quite weird but enjoyable to think about. The first was about tax avoidance and whether it can ever be condoned, and would I ever sanction it if I was the CEO of a big company. Another was about super-injunctions and whether celebrities should ever be allowed to make use of them. The main debate was about public interest vs privacy.

    Hope this helps.
    Helps very much Thank You !!
