    I didn't apply to 12KBW - I was just having a general rant! I know others that it has happened to and it can really throw you off your game. I just don't think it's very "in the spirit" of PG! I also quite like the idea that I will - hopefully - find out everything in one fell swoop.

    Anyway, commiserations. You're clearly a very strong candidate if you had a second round, so don't be too hard on yourself!

    Just a little rant - why do so many PG sets not adhere to the timeframe?! It thankfully hasn't happened to me yet but I just don't understand why - what's the point of using PG if you're not going to stick to it? It just serves to shake people's confidence in the midst of other interviews!! Ok, rant over.
    I think giving out early rejections is bearable. It doesn't hurt any more or less to get it a week or so early. If anything it might be kinder than letting people get anxious with anticipation.

    What's more problematic is the early offer because that then puts pressure on a candidate to accept when they might be in contention for gateway offers as well. I'm not sure that should be allowed if you're going to have an interview process during the gateway period.

    Thanks. People keep saying if you get 2nd rounds you will eventually get a pupillage but my experience to date is that this just isn't happening for me. I'm exhausted from the randomness of it all.

    I'd rather be put out of my misery asap personally, if I'm going to be rejected.

    Also, it seems a little arbitrary to me to object to sets handing out rejections before the offer date when they start sending out rejections from the paper sift (I'm assuming no-one's arguing that they shouldn't do that).

    I didn't ask, but was told I shouldn't expect to hear back before 1st Aug. So i'm assuming there isn't a 2nd round.*

    Guys this is torture isn't it - even worse somehow outside the gateway.

    Sorry this is isn't a helpful post but just thought I would send you all a bit of solidarity.
