    I have a phone interview with them on Wednesday. Didn't get the call till Friday evening though !
    Congratulations! Did they call you? Ugh, my phone picked the wrong time to throw a tantrum. When did you apply?

    Same! I'm pretty sure I've been rejected though. My video interview was disastrous. I would like some closure though...

    congrats ! Still haven't heard back post-interview, almost three weeks ago. How did they contact you? Email or phone?
    They contacted me via email about a week after my interview. I interviewed on 22nd January

    There seems to be really no point in emailing for an update - Done so with Macfarlanes and White & Case now and just been fobbed off with the standard 'volume of applications'.

    The email for White & Case mentioned 'contacting them if your circumstances changed' which is pretty much what I was doing..

    @coke_addict, I'm waiting on white & case post-video, and also jumping every time I get an email!! I'm sure your video went better than you think though

    @Skkkk, as for Sidley Austin, I think you're doing well because they sent out a first wave of rejections last week, including me, so be glad you survived that!

    I've had that response too when I've emailed firms - or it's the "we are still processing applications you will be contacted in due course" despite having applied nearly 3 months ago and people have been interviewed who applied after me and other people who emailed them received a PFO.... I just want to be told whether I need to move them to my PFO folder or not

    I didn't get in - but I was close. Its was a very jam packed 2 weeks. They expect A LOT from you. It was far more intense than I though a vac scheme would ever be.

    Mine went the same. First time doing a video interview and found the whole thing unnerving and went blank. Frustrating as I know I perform well in person. I just want the PFO at this stage so I can cross them off!

    No updates from RPC or Taylor Wessing yet, anyone heard from either since applying?
    Have only seen one TW AC and offer on this forum a couple of weeks ago - everyone else seems to be waiting, including me. I assume if ACs have been held, as you might think looking at the dates they give on the website, then a PFO awaits those who haven't heard, but who knows until it happens I guess. Good luck!

    Linklaters is the last firm I'm waiting for so I just want to know whether I can be done with the vac scheme application process (aside from an unnamed firm which I'm trying to chase up my outcome and expenses from post-interview...)

    I did it for TCs last year. For me, it was very competency focused with a little bit on why Eversheds. Good luck with it!

    I know what you mean - although I have a number of deadlines this week and 2 in March - this process seems to never end! Congrats on your offers though - they are very good firms!
