    Not the only one, I'm still waiting too! Don't worry


    Posted from TSR Mobile
    Yep - I'm waiting too. This happened with the WG responses too - I only got mine about six hours after the first ones heard, so I assume it will be the same this time round. Good luck all!

    Anyone Squire's yet? Seems like they're leaving it to Thurs/Fri!
    Someone mentioned earlier in the thread that they have an AC for Squires Manchester. What office did you apply for? I still haven't heard anything!

    Also been invited to a bird & bird interview. My internet is awful unfortunately, skype tends to drop calls every 5mins or so.

    Well I can take Bristows off the list - that went terribly!
    Hi i have an interview with Bristows this week. May I ask what went so terribly and are the questions mostly competency based?

    I've had another email from Linklaters, saying that I'd been rejected for the vac scheme (I'd already been rejected by email the other day) but inviting me to apply for a training contract

    I'm London. They've said that they'll be contacting this week ("hopefully"), so fingers crossed tomorrow

    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..
    Thats a huge improvement on last year lol - I got a vacation scheme with them from just filling out an application form last year.

    Should definitely take it as a good sign. Means that they were impressed with your application but have already given away their places.

    I am expecting a rejection by the end of this week, since in the acknowledgement email they mentioned that the last AC was scheduled to be last week.

    Edit: sorry just realised that maybe you are waiting post-AC.

    Thanks - though it couldn't have been that they'd already given away all their places as I applied in December

    It was a video interview and I waffled as I had no reactions to go off of. The questions did not go much beyond what was asked in the application form in terms of why law, why Bristows etc.

    ...or they simply think that your application for a TC is good enough even without their vac scheme on it. :wink2:

    Still no peep from IM, Boodle Hatfield or any other firm I applied to! Do firms generally silent PFO for Vac Schemes or do most actually send rejections by email?
