    Has anyone been invited for an informal interview with Winckworth Sherwood? What does it mean by informal? Any tips would be much appreciated!

    Hi what office was this for? I also applied for the DWF vac scheme (Manchester) and have an interview but they did not say that about the TC direct and I also ticked available 2015.

    Thanks
    This was the London office so maybe that's the difference?

    Hi, yeah, London office. I ticked available 2016 TC. I am certainly not available this September, that's when I start the LPC! I think it's for those who can commence TC 2015/2016, and applied for London office.

    Oh why so? Do you already have vac scheme with conflicting schedule?
    Yes, I'm unfortunately already booked up for their only scheme dates... good luck though!

    It's been 6 weeks since I completed the Freshfields test and I haven't heard anything. So many people on this forum seem to have received interviews and offers, have they just forgotten to PFO me? Or do some firms not respond to everyone?
    Hey! They do not send out their PFOs via email. You have to log on to the application system to check your inbox messages.

    Hey! I've got a Dechert interview invite as well but I'm already at a vacation scheme for their second week, I was gonna try emailing to see if I could rearrange a week, have you tried that or is it not possible? Congratulations by the way

    Notified today of Withers interview - if it helps anyone, I applied pretty close to the deadline.

    Waiting to hear back having done White & Case video interview, and have Covington & Burling interview next week. PFO from Sidley Austin.

    Thanks, you too - both for the interview and the vacation scheme offer! I considered it, but my first scheme covers the exact same dates and my second starts the Monday right after. So I don't think there's much leeway there. Besides I think three consecutive schemes would be pretty exhausting! I'll phone and apologise tomorrow, hopefully my spot can be put to better use.

    Has anyone heard from DLA Piper, post Skype interview for the Birmingham office?

    I did my interview last Thursday for the Birmingham office and I haven't heard anything back yet.

    Am I right in thinkings if successful your on the scheme without having to attend a interview?

    PFO from HSF with a lengthy email about what they are looking for. "There are many more high calibre applicants than we can accommodate and you should not be unduly discouraged." Kinda hard not to be discouraged with all PFOs so far.
    So sorry to hear about this. May I know when you applied?

    Congrats! is this vac scheme or TC? I still haven't anything since my online application.....uh-oh!
    Its a vac scheme offer for easter - they dont have TC assessment days till June/ July.

    I think if they fill up - they will offer you a place on their training contract assessment day

    Good luck
