    I also got a video interview invite from Mishcon today, I was almost certain it was a PFO given that most people have already had their assessment centres, but goes to show you should never give up hope! (Although I'm aware it means I was near the bottom of the pile.)

    Does anyone know if a law firm will ring you (post AC) and it's a rejection? Or is it normally good news? Just got a voicemail from Baker & McKenzie..

    Still waiting on IM post-interview too. It seems the last interview (or last ones I heard about) were to be submitted by the 9th and after the interview it said we would hear by the 20th so should be any day now! Sorry I know that's not entirely helpful..the waiting game is horrible!

    Oh yeah I remember seeing that in the email. It's weird that they say they offer places on ACs on a rolling basis but no one has heard :confused:

    Yes! It said to do it ASAP to increase the chances of being successful? Maybe they decided just to wait until all of them were in.

    It should be good news. No point in phoning to reject given the amount of people they invite to AC.

    Sorry to hear that pal, how long did it take for them to get back to you?
    They got back to me quite quick, had the interview on 10th and found out today. Onwards and upwards I guess

    Congratulations! Do you have any tips for the telephone interview and AC?
    This wil sound really generic but be yourself. The AC groups are small so you can really shine as an individual. They do separate law and non law case studies so be prepared for law content If you're a law student.

    Everyone is really friendly so just relax and be yourself 😄

    Hey guys, I have a video interview with Mishcon de Reya. Does anyone have any insight into what to expect? Is is mostly competency questions or do they throw in some commercial awareness stuff?

    They draw the questions from a bank so its hard to predict what you might get. It's five or six questions in total - the question flashes on the screen for 30 seconds then you get a minute and a half to two minutes to answer.

    I got a couple of standard (why mishcon etc), one commercial one (tell me about a recent commercial news item you found interesting), and then a couple of competency. I also got asked how I spent summer 2014 which I was surprised by!

    My advice would be keep an eye on the timer - I got caught out on one. Prepare properly - maybe have some notes nearby if you get stuck. I think I fluffed it - still waiting to hear back a week and a half later.

    Good luck!

    Anyone heard from White & Case?
    So I've asked a few friends who applied last year, and they told me that White & Case takes AGES to respond. Usually early March is when you would start to hear back. Some people had already accepted other VS's when W&C got back to them.

    Having trawled through last year's thread, I noticed that some people who applied for a TC didn't get their PFO till December. So I guess time management isn't something Grad Rec at White & Case are really concerned about...

    In essence, with regards to W&C, no news simply means no news.

    Anyone else get an invite to do a video interview with White & Case today? Also, their email strongly implies that it's the last stage and there's no AC/face-to-face:

    '... the quicker you submit your video, the quicker you will know if you have been allocated a vacation scheme place.'

    I just got an invite to their video interview too. Think it must be the last stage of recruitment. Pretty impersonal if you ask me...
