    just got an email saying I'm through to the 2nd stage which sounds like it involves various online tests. More details to follow next week apparently, including deadlines for completion

    Weightmans - through to stage 2 of their recruitment process, which I believe is the final stage. More details of online assessments next week - I wonder if this could sneakily include an "online interview"?

    Oh that seems pretty strange - considering the small intake, guessing that market demands have forced their hand. I wonder if they'll be recruiting more than usual for 2017.

    I interviewed for the vac scheme and you really need to be able to articulate why Kirkland/why US/private equity and why not MC. Need to be really on your game in terms of commercial acumen,Kirkland's place in the market and so on.

    Also, don't under-estimate the lunch session where you can mingle with the lawyers/HR.

    For anyone tracking applications... interview invite today for Arnold & Porter. Couldn't accept since their scheme conflicts with my other offers.

    I know - I even called to say that I had obviously failed the vid interview so would I still be eligible for the TC in the summer, but was directed to e-mail instead and never did! Phew.

    Have only read chambers etc, which seems to indicate no interview, but written, oral and group tests - but no more detail - I guess prepare for everything, and ignore the chance of an interview at your peril! I'll be there on the 23rd. Gulp!
    Hi!! How did you find it? I just got the email on what we have to prepare....nervous is an understatement!

    Any news from shoosmiths yet? They're my last chance at a Vac Scheme, all my other apps have winded up unsuccessful

    Guess my only chance of a TC this yr is from straight TC apps...
