    Do you mind my asking how the AC was? Was the partner interview okay?!
    I actually applied to the Sheffield office. I had my AC last week and got told I was successful today just have a partner interview now on Monday. Think the Sheffield process is slightly different as the partner interview is on a separate day. Good luck. All I can say is that the firm is really really friendly!

    Hey!

    I had one on Thursday and was told 2-3 working days. Got an email on Friday saying I'd hear this week. So far no response and it's killing me!

    Question, I was just wondering, firms like it when you tailor an answer to their firm, how would you tailor a generic 'why law?' question to a firm when the proceeding question is why them specifically?

    I don't think for that sort of question it is important to tailor the question as such, but simply get across your passion for the profession and particular things that attract you to the firm. However there may be certain circumstances where you could tailor it slightly. For instance, you could write that you have enjoyed applying your theoretical knowledge of the law in a practical context through pro bono initiatives and that you are particularly pleased with 'X firm's' own passion to promote corporate social responsibility... Something like that maybe?

    Oh good luck! I have no idea how mine went - I think the interview was okay - but the analysis part at the start was tricky!

    How about you?

    I am starting to get progressively less upset by PFOs. Don't know if this is sad or what.

    I had a similar experience! Didn't finish the analysis and hadn't looked at any figures for years so my maths was a bit sloppy :/

    I had a similar experience! Didn't finish the analysis and my maths was a bit sloppy considering I hadn't looked at maths since GCSE haha! Probably took the wrong approach but wouldn't have called it a disaster :P
