    when answering commercial awareness questions, do you have to put a source from where you got it from? e.g. professor Phillip or time magazine stated that or would you just word it yourself as your own?

    They really do seem extremely picky. Haven't heard of anyone who's been offered an interview yet.

    I have an interview - Also have a host of PFOs so I think it just depends (very standard applicant)

    I think A&O is a firm where it definitely paid to get your application in early and they seem to prioritise those who did one of the first year open days.

    Would figure, given that I failed to get on their "First" programme last year and didn't send off my app until Christmas Eve.

    Ah well, you win some you lose some. It's my first PFO though so it's worked well as a reality check - know I need to knuckle down and get serious about my interviews now

    About two weeks ago. It sucks, because I don't know whether my rejection was because more down to when I submitted it, or if it was just terrible. Or both.
