    Let's hope so! Where else have you applied?

    Ah excellent, haha what're the chances!?
    I'm mixing it up slightly! Other than the ones already mentioned, I've done CC, A&O, Slaughter, Norton Rose Fulbright, Cleary, Latham, Weil and Skadden. I'll be doing Clyde & Co too then that's it probably. Considering Herbies but I'm constrained by time with January exams and their huge amount of online testing puts me off.

    What about you?

    Lovely stuff, not massively different from myself!

    Did a CC vac scheme over summer so won't be applying there yet, but will directly apply for the TC, but have applied to Skadden, Latham, and S&C, and plan on also doing Weil, Cleary and White & Case. Was going to do Herbies, but I know that I would never choose it over Freshfields as a TC, so I'm now focussing my apps on the US firms so that I can hopefully see a different perspective over Easter/Summer.

    Very nice! I completely understand that. I know if I was lucky enough to get multiple offers for vacation schemes, Herbies would not be my priority, so it feels pointless applying.

    I'm hoping to be able to do a vac at one of the US powerhouses like Skadden to, like you said, see a different perspective.

    Does the Jones Day reference request mean anything? - Also found out that rejection from Weil for the vac scheme bars you from a TC app.

    Hey guys,

    I've seen couple of people mentioning White&Case, has anyone heard back from them? I sent my application a whiiiiile ago and yet no reply. Does that mean I am rejected or they are just taking their time?

    Nothing back from White & Case here for whatever that's worth. Interview from Shearman & Sterling though.

    Ah well, Clifford Chance and Freshfields have invited me for interview! I applied last Thursday for A&O, so it was a fairly quick turnaround!

    Weird... I got told in no uncertain terms by CC's graduate recruitment team that they don't recruit on a rolling basis...

    Same, I applied months ago and was told I had passed the online test and would be contacted after the deadline in January regarding whether I had made it to AC or not. :confused:

    Aside from Weil, Simmons, BLP and Travers - Does anyone know places where rejection at the app stage bars you from the TC app?
