    Surprisingly, yes!
    Great!! Which day are you going? Also - can't figure out if there's an interview involved or just group exercises, do you have any idea?

    Thanks!

    In need of some advice....

    I've been invited to the final stage assessment centre/selection days for Bird&Bird and BLP in London, but I'm currently studying abroad in Asia.

    I emailed them both to see if I could do the assessment in their Asian offices or via video but unfortunately I need to attend in person.

    Feeling pretty disheartened as I cannot really afford to fly back, plus then I'll be jetlagged and will miss classes at Uni out here, but I don't want to deselect myself out of the process.

    What do you think I should do? Is it worth asking if I can have my application deferred/ transferred to a TC app or something so that all is not lost?
    That's really annoying. I'd definitely ask if you can defer your application or switch to a direct TC app, they're obviously interested in you as a candidate so you might as well try!

    Thank you for your application to Penningtons Manches LLP for a vacation scheme placement or information day.

    Although we read your application with great interest, we have not been able to shortlist you for our vacation scheme. You are, however, still being considered for a place on one of the information days that we will hold in our London office during July. These interactive days comprise a variety of activities including a series of presentations about the firm as well as an opportunity for you to meet us and ask any questions you have about the firm and our trainee recruitment process.

    We will be in touch during May with further news about your application. If, in the meantime, you would prefer not to be considered for an information day, please let us know, so that we can amend our records.

    Penningtons Manches LLP

    Has anyone else received this?

    Im now uncertain whether even if I get an invite to the Information day, (although they only take about 15 for that- so very competitive for that too), do they offer TC for those attending Info days? Pretty much most or all offers would go to the Vac schemers.

    Bit strange to ask, I know, but is it acceptable to turn down an Assessment Centre invitation? I have already accepted a vac scheme offer, and I have to focus on academic stuff right now so don't have time to attend? Is it really rude to say no?

    What other careers are people looking at beyond law? Im starting to wonder if I should reconsider my career choice after no vac schemes and a ridiculous amount of time spent on apps and interviews

    Anyone heard from Gibson Dunn this recruitment cycle?
    Not heard anything from them, thinking of sending an email about it. Does anyone know if they've done all their assessment days yet?

    Offer from Eversheds Leeds office, over the moon!!
    Congrats on the offer. I assume you had to sit an AC in Leeds? How long after your face to face interview did you receive an invite to the AC?

    Thank you No, it's telephone interview, then face to face and offer after that. You have to do an AC on the VS to be considered for a TC - sorry about all the abbreviations haha!
