    Thank you very much!!

    I absolutely loved the firm - everyone was really friendly and welcoming and that made the interview immediately relaxing. I would say they are both conservative and nice in the sense that the interview questions were probing but it was done so in a relaxed setting. The associate and partner were really friendly and smiley and there were a few jokes throughout the interview.

    Interview was split into two sections - first part I was given an article and given 15 mins to read it and take notes. Then I had to answer some questions on it mainly about the argument that was being put forward. Second part was competency based - why GB, why law etc. All in all it lasted roughly 45 mins long

    Guessing you have an interview with them too?? Best of luck!!!

    Sorry didn't hit reply before so wasn't sure if you would get a notification, when was your interview for gibson and how long did it take to hear ?

    Hey.. so I just got my first year results and I'm extremely disappointed with myself and know that there's not really much chance of me getting a vacation scheme for next year.

    Grades:
    Law of Torts- 61%
    Public Law- 58%
    Criminal Law- 58%
    Contract- 58%

    I know. They're bad. My coursework was all of 2:1 (65%) standard but my exams have seriously effected my overall score and I'm very upset with myself.

    What are my options??

    (Side point: I have attended 4 law firm open days, I have a weeks work experience with DLA Piper coming up, possibly work experience with BT's legal team, work experience at a solicitors firm, part of Pathways to Law programme, I've had a full time job as a sales assistant coming up to 2 years, ABB at A level, extra curricular = netball team, representee for a society etc)

    Thank you in advance

    When it says a vacation scheme is open to penultimate year law students and LAW GRADUATES does that mean a 3rd year law student can apply?

    I'm pretty certain the answer to your question is yes.

    There are two ways you can look at this.

    1) you could sit around and complain...though this will achieve nothing and you'll be no better off.

    2) you could reflect on why it is that your grades were not as good as you seem to have expected. Make a resolution to do better next year. Even if you choose not to apply to vac schemes next year (I think that would be a poor decision personally. You should email/call grad recruitment teams to see if it's worth you trying), you could always do so in your third with - hopefully- stronger results.

    All is not lost. But learn from this.
