    Hey! Sure - it was fine the people were super nice. Mine was with an HR Person and a partner and they both have different questions to ask you.

    It's split in half - so one half was the HR person asking me competency questions and then the second half was largely the partner asking me commercial awareness questions. It was a very informal interview and they'd go off script and just chat with me about stuff they thought was interesting - so it was very conversational (for example I was asked if I knew X or Y person from my highschool because one of the interviewers knew some people that had attended) it made it more relaxed and I actually really enjoyed chatting with them.

    They've also got your application form there and give you a chance to talk about anything on it you felt the interview didn't cover

    Are firms less likely to make TC offers to penultimate year non lawyers on their vac schemes because it's too early for them or does it not matter at all?
    No not at all. If you are good enough, they just offer you the intake they will be recruiting for in the following academic year.

    I have just had an offer from AG for the Leeds Office after my assessment centre last week but they may all be different! Which office did you apply to?
    Congrats! I applied to London. Very tempted to call them up but worried they'll say no straight away!

    Has anyone actually received a rejection from hill Dickinson (post app) or Boodle Hatfield? I don't know whether just send out all their rejections at once as soon as they fill all their VS places

    Just in case this helps anyone: if you are in a situation where you have to reject a firm after you receive an offer due to date clashes, I would advise asking them if you can change your application to a TC application. I had to reject Clifford Chance for a VS but I was still planning on applying for a TC there.

    They said to me that they can transfer my application to a TC application and all I will have to do over summer is have a one-hour interview with a partner, rather than repeating the full assessment day.

    Thank you so much for getting back to me were there any unusual competency qs that you had not previously considered or were they straight forward? with regards to the commercial awareness qs were the questions very complex or more open? its great that they made you feel at ease! did they ask any think specifically legal as i am non law :/ also sorry for the questions! but did they say when you will hear back? good luck!

    I haven't heard back from Baker at all, other than when I emailed them asking what's happening and they said I was still under consideration. Haven't heard back from CRS at all, not even a test
