    Congrats on your many achievements so far this cycle

    Maitland rejections out by email (named) and I've heard nothing yet from New Square or Erskine.

    Nothing from New Square or anyone else, but I got a mini at 39 essex, so that's something.

    I've heard nothing from Erskine either but suspect that means that they are sending rejections by post, or are just delaying sending them by email for a few days as Radcliffe did.

    Next one I'm expecting to hear from is Wilberforce, who should be telling us the news on Monday according to their website. [Also waiting for 3 and 5 Stone Buildings, but no idea when that will be].

    Same here, except for 5SB. Also not looking forward to the number of applications I have to finish and send off this weekend, though it's the last big batch of pre-Gateway deadlines, so it's gotta be done I guess.

    I wholeheartedly envy you - I've been a bit ill over the last week, so only just getting back to form in terms of work/applications...

    Someone please correct me if I'm mistaken, but I'm almost certain that Erskine interviews aren't until next week (ie. w/c 1 Feb) at least...

    You're right. [Not that I have one, but from those I know that do]

    Hey - I'm afraid I haven't had my interview yet, having it on Monday, so I'm just as clueless as you are. I'm brushing up on my company law (not formally required for the interview, but I reckon background knowledge can't hurt) - other than that, just practising articulating answers to the standard questions and preparing to expect the unexpected. I assume you have an interview too, best of luck!

    (BTW, they did offer interview slots for yesterday and the day before, so it is certainly possible that it would have already happened)

    Got a Maitland rejection but an invite from New Square.

    Just waiting on South Square now, but I'll probably throw my hat in the ring for the tax sets for the sake of it although I think my chances there are zero.

    I'm not really sure how much they care if you've studied tax. I don't even know if they mind too much if you declined the opportunity to study tax. I'd certainly give it a go - Pump Ct and Gray's Inn are both CV/Cover letter sets, so it won't take you that long to apply anyway

    Yeah that's what's swaying me towards applying. Probably wouldn't have done so if it was a long application form.

    Ah apologies - I was going off the information on their website.

    How/when did you get the New Square invite?

    I agree with Forum User, it's definitely worth giving them a go and I'm not too sure how much they care about previous tax education/experience. Plus, everyone's got some experience of tax, even if through their own personal tax returns/PAYE, so there's definitely spinning potential on 'why this area'.

    Back on the grind. Spent my Saturday evening working on my draft for my first app of the year. I'm starting far earlier than last year and will probably be getting a lot more apps in this year.

    Good luck to all!

    Which areas of law are you applying for?

    If chancery/commercial/property, etc. it's not actually that early.

    Good luck!

    Haha, yeah, "I've always gazed with fascination at my payslip".

    As for New Square, I got the invite by email on Friday at about midday.
