    I agree with you both. I am representing a point. The examples I use on this don't reflect my own personal exp. Some of the points I bring are true and some are hypothetical -trying to remain anonymous. Usually to probe a similar issue. Also I'm talking about access to the bar today. Not 0-10-20 years ago. Access to the bar was bad then and I think a reasonable expenses scheme would increase diversity. I've saved to get here and know etc. Don't think anything wrong in trying to increase an awareness for it.

    Don't have a chip on the shoulder, I've been very lucky.

    I've made sacrifices etc and savings to get to the bar. Nor have I had handouts or expect them.
    Ahhh. I think my friends, we have established Tiny92 is a troll.

    Perhaps your initial comment calling two well respected sets an "absolute joke" for not covering interview expenses led to the comments you received.

    Because that reads as an inappropriate comment about specific chambers as opposed to a criticism of access to the bar in general.

    Please will someone post when offers are out for college chambers? I am literally on the edge of my seat here. Assuming offers will be made by telephone after tonight's AGM decision I simply cannot wait until snail mail brings the post next week with rejections.

    Thanks!

    Seems like New Square are rejecting by silence post second round, which is a bit bad. Tried to ring to find out what was going on and got told I'd have to wait till next Thursday to talk to someone who knew what was happening. Don't suppose anyone else here has got the official rejection yet?

    That is bad indeed and commiserations. To an extent, at app form stage or maybe even after 1st round (pushing it), it might be acceptable, but definitely not after 2nd round imo.

    I've got to say I have the upmost respect for those who are going through their third, fourth and even fifth cycles, this is my first one and I'm already emotionally exhausted ! The high of the interview offer followed by the crush of the rejection and the constant email refreshing in between is almost akin to some kind of obscure psychological torture ....

    Btw Tanfield was a rejection for me too

    Anyone heard from Blackfriars (Oct 2016) following interview on Sunday?

    Was told it would be the end of the week - wasn't sure if working week or not.

    This is my third cycle. It's very emotionally draining.
    One interview in my first year;
    Two interviews in my second year and one reserve,
    15 interviews in my third year and one reserve.

    My third cycle as well.

    Two second rounds is the closest I've got. Other than that, a spattering of interviews but mainly rejections on paper. It does get really depressing after a while.

    I got the news that I have pupillage at 2 Dr Johnson Buildings! I am so shocked and surprised!
    Just honestly everyone you can do it because it took me so many interviews to succeed and I never thought this day would come and it has!
    So thanks for all the useful tips and sharing in the process.
    Good luck everyone

    Does anyone know what time of year the Inns (particularly Inner) let you know about scholarships?

    Tbh I don't know of many chambers that DO provide expenses...I have had two interviews recently and for both I had to pay £150 to get to London and back so I think it's just one of those things

    I'm travelling from the Middle East - two interviews just cost me £1500! Like chucking money down a well of limitless hope, but limited funds...
