    Also waiting on VWV... They're certainly taking their time, but it can't be much longer. Fingers crossed!

    Does anyone have any advice on video interviews? I've got to complete on for my BLP Brand Manager application, and I genuinely have no idea how to impress tbh. Would have much preferred a phone interview, or even a proper Skype interview, but ah well.

    In terms of preparation, I would do exactly the same as if it were face-to-face. Before you start the interview, you should be able to test your camera/microphone (if not should be able to do it on your webcam programme). Before mine I just recorded myself saying a few sentences just to see how it sounded/looked and adjusted accordingly. Also check your background and what is in the camera view!

    Finally, in your interview try and look into the camera to make 'eye contact' rather than look at yourself in the little box that appears. You should be told how long you have to answer each question, keep an eye on the timer when you are providing your answers. I wore a suit when I did mine too! Best of luck!

    Cheers for the advice! I just find the whole idea of talking into a webcam with no on there so awkward haha. Sure it'll be okay though, I mean everyone is going to be in the same boat.

    Although no one seems to have heard, maybe they haven't let anyone no?

    I also haven't heard, I'm presuming its a rejection to be honest though. However, nobody from my university (that I know) has heard back either, so I suppose there's always a chance they've missed their own deadline, but this seems unlikely.

    Would seem so haha.

    Also, quick question. Have you ever been successful in your applications through Aspiring Solicitors? About 90% of the applications I've sent off externally have been successful, but with AS I've never received positive news.

    Just trying to decide if AS schemes are just extremely competitive, or if I'm potentially not 'diverse' enough, meaning I shouldn't bother in the future.
