    Manchester PLS. Completed my interview on the 8th but still haven't heard. I know someone said that they had spoken to Nicola Stanley and she said that we would hear by this week but the interview itself said by the 20th and it just seems really random in terms of who hears. Really like IM though so hoping for the best!
    I'm in the same position! Manchester PLS ... STILL haven't heard anything. It will be 4 weeks tomorrow since I did the video interview. If it's a PFO i'd rather they just get on with it instead of drawing it way out!

    RE: Covington not necessarily. I received an interview offer at the start of March (and was eventually interviewed on March 18) last year so there's still some hope!
    cheers!

    Got a place on the White & Case Easter vacation scheme!

    If it helps anyone, I did my video interview 48 hours after the first round of invitations went out.

    Just got a PFO from Cleary Gottlieb... in the mail. Never got any emails from them, though would've thought that a simple email PFO would be easier (and cheaper) than mailing one.
    Would you mind sharing when you applied?

    If White & Case have begun to move, it looks like that awaited PFO will soon be arriving.

    Has anyone heard anything yet from Gibson Dunn or are they one of those firms that take ages in dealing with applications?

    Ropes & Gray phone interview was disastrous. Good luck to anyone else who applied.

    Sad thing was that it wasn't hugely difficult. Very general questions, I was just very unprepared - never had a phone interview before, only ever been face to face, so I guess that threw me slightly. They launched straight in without any chit chat, so just be 100% ready. Only bad thing was they asked me to nominate a commercial story that I had been interested in recently, which I did, and then they were like "What about this story instead"? Which I hadn't prepared for, thought was a bit sneaky.

    Just know your ins and outs of basic economics and how the commercial world works. They asked me questions like "What would happen if interest rates went up". Simple, but it threw me as it was out of the blue. Good luck ! Sure you'll be fine, I was just really unprepared, quite embarrassing really. Smash it.

    I think the fact that W&C base offers on video interviews tells you all you need to know about the time they have for recruiting their vac schemers..

    Ah okay, thanks for the heads up! btw for future phone interviews, you can have notes lying around for a quick peek when you are stuck!
