    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.
    Come to think of it I have also been unsuccessful with AS stuff in the past. I think AS must have their own way of doing things with applications etc

    I understand that Aspiring Solicitors receive a very high number of applications for the events that they hold. The Bircham Dyson Bell event that I attended recently had over 200 applications and only 15 of us were selected to attend the event. I'm not sure what their selection criteria is; I don't come from a diverse or unusual background.

    They never got back to me about a time slot, despite inviting me...

    Considering that it is May, I reckon that they know that anyone actively waiting on them will still be interested even with a few weeks notice.

    I can't understand why they've delayed it so long, they can't even be that inundated with applicants. Not the end of the world for me if they don't get back to me, but it would be nice to have some closure to all my applications.

    Hi guys, if anyone reading this has actually received an invite to the Barclays legal work experience week telephone interview please let me/us know. Fine with being rejected but just want some closure and no one who has already posted seems to have been successful. Thanks

    Fox Williams said they'd let people know beginning of May so hopefully this week or the next.

    Nothing from Barclays, assuming it's a silent PFO.
