    Just sent my RPC application off. Definitely my best application so far and the one I invested the most time into. Hoping it yields some sort of result other than a pfo haha. Still not heard back from Hogan Lovells regarding the online test, sending my application about a week ago. Hopefully a good sign.

    Hi all!

    Thought I'd get involved here after, quite frankly, being a bit of a lurker. I have sent off four apps over the past two weeks and now constantly (and slightly too eagerly) checking my emails!

    Anyone else applied to Stephenson Harwood or Mishcon de Reya? Haven't see much chat about them on here.

    Going to start looking into completing an application for Burges Salmon. Probably the only law firm outside London I would be willing to work at, maybe Osborne Clarke but definitely just those 2.

    If you've had previous employment, it would definitely look questionable as to why you haven't put down a referee.

    Does anyone know whether you can put down your sixth form tutor as an academic referee. Might help with explaining some mitigating circumstances...

    If they want an academic reference it's usually university. If you want to provide details of someone to verify extenuating circumstances prior to that, add that in any "extra information" section.

    Mishcon, yes.
    SH, possibly–I received an invite for the WG test on the day following sending my form. I don't believe it was automatic as their website states "If we’re impressed by your application form, we’ll ask you to take part in our online reasoning test."
