    That's weird, I interviewed yesterday and already received my email telling me to get lost just now (24 hours post-interview!), really disappointing :/ so I would say be pleased that they haven't given you a quick rejection and are considering you seriously! I thought my debates with the interviewer had gone fairly well so this is quite disheartening
    That is pretty strange. I'm guessing that my interviewer may not have communicated the interview outcome to HR before his holiday, not sure what would cause the delay otherwise. Really cba to wait till next week.

    It was definitely one of those interviews, where you often struggled to see how/where you were being really assessed. See it as invaluable interview practice for TCs and so on. I definitely think Travers have a type, so not getting an offer is probably no reflection on you. I personally feel like the debates were just to show whether you were fairly intelligent and being chosen mainly boiled down to other factors.

    Good luck for W&C! Must feel pretty important now, but don't let that show in the video!

    Hi all

    Also waiting on IM video interview outcome.

    Just had confirmation of telephone interview with Eversheds (Cardiff) in case anyone is wondering about them (I applied two days before the deadline).

    Re Baker & McKenzie, does anyone know what the 'contacted' status on CVmail means? I emailed them to ask if an email got lost on the way, but they just gave me a generic reply along the lines of we're still looking at applications blablabla leave us alone blablabla
    Mine says the same thing, and when I called them they told me that it just means I got a confirmation that they received my application. I applied Jan 19th and still no news so far.

    Thank you! I am beginning to feel this might be a PFO given that some chaps here have applied around the same time and have already gone all the way to AC's

    No - I have no idea why they are so late this year. When I spoke to HR at the law fair, they said they start interviewing end of Jan? - But I think it will be beginning of March because they haven't even sent out the verbal reasoning tests to people who they shortlist yet

    Yeah I've been offered a vac scheme in the summer, really pleased! I applied to birmigham - they were really friendly and the offices are brilliant. I'm not sure how the assessment centre might differ in london but I imagine it must be pretty similar. The group exercise was prioritising the factors firms need to consider in the future while the individual one was interviewing a client about a problem then recommending some solutions. Good luck for your interview - let me know if there's anything else!
    Many congrats on getting the offer, really happy for you! Thanks for all the help, I think that's all I wanted to know for now but I will definately contact you should anything else come up.

    Do you guys think I should e-mail IM and ask an update of my application status post video interview or shall I just wait?

    The waiting game and constantly checking my e-mails is making me anxious

    Hi,

    I wouldn't worry too much yet, the deadline for my video interview was only last Friday so they would have only just started going through each VI now. So it is still early days yet! Good luck

    I am guessing they may have gotten way more applications this year than previously bearing in mind they are non-rolling. My guess is that we should hear from them by latest this Friday.

    I agree, I think for the first stream of IM video interviews the outcome will be revealed by Friday 20th. Try not to worry, not too long to go. Good luck both
