    Hello all, Are we writing off charter interviews tomorrow? Has anyone managed to get a response from them?

    If I don't hear anything by tonight I'll have to write charter off. I emailed them twice now (Thursday and today) and no response. Anyone else had any luck?

    Try not to worry I had a similar experience a few weeks ago where I thought I really connected with the panel and gave really well considered, well presented answers to everything and felt it was my best performance by far but then failed to get a second round and was massively disappointed. I just keep telling myself there will be others and maybe it just wasn't the chambers for me! Although, I can never help but wonder how well I actually do at these things and where chambers actually viewed me in relation to other candidates....

    Same! Can always apply again next year I guess. Onwards and upwards!

    A fellow 18SJS-er? If so, it was a great process even though I didn't get interview either. Some very able candidates that I witnessed also fell after the first hurdle! I prefer that format for assessing pupils rather, for example, than a 10 minute interview with random questions not really assessing my advocacy abilities. Best of luck

    Am I missing something, or is there no way to get a print friendly version of your pupillage applications on gateway?

    Seems a pretty obvious thing to put on the site but I can't see it anywhere.

    I haven't been able to work it out either. I just printed the website and selected the relevant pages. Alternatively, copy and paste into a Word doc - I've done that with my substantive answers but may not work as well if you want the whole thing.

    Does seem like a bit of a silly oversight!

    Anyone else had the horrific experience of receiving a phone-call from Chambers asking ' are you still coming in for interview today' and not actually knowing that you had an interview at all with Chambers as the e-mail never arrived?! It sent me into waves of panic on the weekend! Luckily Chambers is willing to reschedule but I will think twice before supplying a Hotmail e-mail address in future.
