    Just realised I haven't added my second year modules (which I haven't yet been examined on) onto one of my applications - only put my first year ones on there. Hope that isn't an issue :erm:
    Are you meant to put in your second year modules even if you're not examined on them? I haven't done so for any apps, but I'm non-law so that might be different?

    I'm not sure - some of them didn't really make it that clear! But I am a bit worried :erm:

    Yeah, they really don't, hopefully you'll be fine! Was this for a firm you really liked?

    Oh cool I was curious since I haven't made any apps to firms outside of London. I've got an offer from FF and an interview with Slaughters, so it's going alright I guess
    Well done on the offer from FF hopefully I will have some luck too! Best of luck for your interview!

    Do Cleary Gottlieb send interview invites by post as well, or just rejections? Bit worried since I live in a student house with a lot of people so post often gets jumbled up haha

    Hi, does anyone know for applications where we have to copy and paste our cover letter into a box on the application form, if we need to include things like addresses and Dear Sir/Madam....??? Because I don't want to waste words when I only have 250!!!! Thanks!!!

    What I normally do is see if they say it on the website (I have come across some that say you don't need to even address it to anyone) if it doesn't say on their website, and with such a short word count, I personally would write "Dear X, Job Title" then write the body of the cover letter then just simply "Thank you for your consideration, name". This is just what I would do - I don't know if it is correct or not.

    Has anyone been rejected by MacFarlanes yet?

    Applied 7th Nov, and curious to know if I will be in the mass reject pile considering that some have interviews already.

    For the person who applied to Macfarlanes on 7th Nov and hasn't heard back, that is odd that they haven't got back to you yet, it took them 3 weeks to respond to me. I'd assume no news is good news though: if they didnt think they would invite you to interview they'd have rejected you by now - the fact that they haven't shows their still considering it, maybe shelving your app until closer to the deadline?

    Always look on the bright side - something clearly stopped them from rejecting where else have you applied? So far I've applied to Macfarlanes, Herbert Smith Freehills, Simmons, Baker & McKenzie, Slaughter & May. I've sat all 3 tests for HSF but not heard about an interview yet.
