    What's the convention for when one has been offered a VS place but still has outstanding applications to hear back from? I don't want to let my place go but at the same time I want to keep my options open...

    Depends on whether you're content with the VS you've got.

    If so, then you'd email HR of the remaining law firms and ask to cancel your application so you give someone else a chance at a VS.

    If not, then you wait for the outcome of your application, then email HR if you want to do give someone else a VS should you be successful.

    I'm still waiting too.. did they give you a rough time scale of how long the wait would be or are you just presuming two weeks? Best of luck! Didn't you say in another post your application status had changed to assessment centre?

    i'm presuming 2 weeks though they did say "in due course". yes my status changed to assessment day, but now the status is merely blank so i have no idea what has gone on - whether the system messed up or they changed their minds - so i'm not holding my breath. what does the status of yours say?

    I completed mine on Tuesday. Seems ok, slightly surprised by the format but I thought some of the questions could have had multiple answers, depending on your personality. Hope it goes well for you. Was just interested to see what others thought.

    Would you mind giving us an idea of the kind of things they asked? Also, how long did it take to complete? Thanks.

    Depends how much you scrutinise your answers. I spent about an hour and a half in the end. It's nothing to be worried about, just questions about what you would do in certain situations and your personality.

    is it legit to use the same application for a training contract as the vacation scheme one where you've gotten an interview and been rejected? especially where questions are exactly the same
