    good luck! I've just got one too and was rejected from my IM video interview and it went really badly so really nervous for this one. Are all the questions competency based or would it be good to research the firm a bit more too?

    Do some firms silent PFO for vac schemes? I have sent off a number of applications (each had 31st Jan deadlines) and haven't heard back.... I'm 96% sure they are rejections but it would be nice to have the email confirmation so I can move on

    Hey, wondering the same thing - especially about Taylor Wessing and HFW - has anyone been rejected by these?

    Sorry to hear about your IM interview, it wasn't the nicest of interviews! If you don't mind me asking, which office did you apply to and when did you hear back? I've not heard anything since I did mine.

    How do assessment centres usually work when you are on a year abroad? Do the firms expect you to fly to London for them or is it usually possible for them to make alternative arrangements for you?

    I'm still waiting for replies from Hill Dickinson (despite emailing asking for an update and I applied 3 months ago) and Boodle Hatfield - I haven't heard of any rejections for these firms apart from one from Hill Dickinson after they emailed for an update, so assuming they might be silent PFO's?

    ..... You would think that spending so many hours on an application would warrant at least a generic rejection email from their part, right??!

    Yep, especially after emailing for an update but they just said that they are still reviewing applications I know that they are shortlisting their vac scheme places in March so if I've not been invited to interview by now I don't think I will be, so that's why I think they might not even reject people

    I decided to fly for all of them since they offer you around 100-150 for expenses anyway. I guess that if there is only an interview you could arrange to do it via phone. Slaughter and May offered this arrangement and I guess that it is not the only one out there.

    AC for BLP after not hearing for over a month! I applied for a vac scheme and a TC in my application and the email says I will be assessed for my suitability for a TC. Am I to assume that it's a straight TC assessment centre? I've emailed grad recruitment to find out exactly but was just wondering what anyone else thought?

    my email from them says the same thing as yours. Weird cos there's no specific interview mentioned, so I presume it's for a vac scheme as they tend to interview at the end of the scheme. Confusing...
