    Idk, it did suggest that they only had one vacancy left on an open day, but they may hire a couple others and see them another time - they did have a note saying 'if neither of these days are good for you, contact grad recruitment.' that might suggest they still have some flexibility? i doubt they're already full, theyre open till 31st jan!

    Again, anyone going to the Tues 13th Day?

    What does that mean there is no point applying to Macfarlanes now?
    I would be hugely surprised if those are the only blocks they will offer to at all - many firms do several batches of open days/assessment centres, so you may only originally be offered a certain set of them (with then the option, as TykeDragon said, of other dates being available, if you're unable to make the dates offered). For example, I was only offered two slots by Jones Day, but I'm sure they will still be recruiting a good number more candidates. Hope that helps

    Thanks, that makes perfect sense!! I just wanted to relay the fact I was given only 2 choices and wondered what it meant :P The only apps I've sent off so far have been HSF and Macfarlanes, and so far I've been put through to all of the HSF tests, and invited to Macfarlanes :O feeling lucky!! now i've got to learn what they want to see on the assessment/interview day haha

    Assessment day invite from Norton Rose Fulbright, at 11pm last night! I wonder what graduate recruitment were doing reviewing applications at that time.

    Just to tag on to what mrlufc said, just because you only get offered a couple of slots, it doesn't mean they are the only slots left! For example I've only been offered one slot by NRF but I know they're running assessment days up until mid-February (I'm their brand manager). If you e-mail firms they will often be willing to book you in on a day/time that is convenient for both you and them.

    Have a good Christmas everybody!

    No worries, gotcha!

    That's great news, congrats - where else are you applying?

    Best of luck for the assessment centres!

    Don't know about HSF assessment centre invites - I've not heard from them since I did my VR and Logic tests!

    @mrlufc: I'm applying for Simmons, Ashurst, Nabarro, Baker & McKenzie, Clyde & Co, Addleshaw Goddard. May add/remove a couple, I'll see! I'm making very slow progress on Simmons for some reason do they do an online test between app and interview, or is that just for TC?

    Got no idea what to expect and how to excel on the macfarlanes day, i've got no experience of this - got a lot of prep to do!

    Simmons Simmons never sent me an online test, so I don't think they send one.

    Hate to be messaging on Christmas Day but... does anyone know which law firms bar you from applying for a TC in the same year if you arnt successful for their vac scheme? I'm talking about Hill Dickinson, Irwin Mitchell and Fieldfisher in particular. Is there any other way of finding out or should I just call the firms and ask?
    They sometimes say it on their website, but I find it better to connect with the HR on the phone. I find that many firms also appreciate as it shows interest in the firm! But other people might disagree with me.

    Do you guys know if Slaughter and May replies after the deadline closes? I don't want to apply if all places have been filled and I feel like a few people have already been offered places.

    Has anyone who has applied to Cleary Gottlieb's summer scheme received a receipt or acknowledgement email? It'd be nice to be assured that they've actually received my application!

    Applications have already closed for the Easter scheme.

    With regards to the Summer scheme, I'm not sure if they recruit rolling. My gut instinct is to say that they don't but I'm not 100% certain. Sorry!

    Have applied for the Easter scheme and I have heard nothing. I heard a rumour that they're very traditional and send out interview invites/rejections by post.

    If it's for the summer scheme, I already got an interview invite last week, so I hope that helps

    Has anyone heard from Linklaters for their Easter scheme? My application still says it is under review. Do they normally send out rejections by email?

    On Vac Scheme application is it common to ask for a cover letter aswell as to answer a number of questions? The one I'm working on now does ask for a cover letter even though they asked a number of questions...what should I include in the cover letter? Sorry for so many questions, I haven't done a vac scheme application before!
