    This is going to make clear just how neurotic I am, but we received interview invites at 15:20 on a Sunday, so I'm expecting that the 2nd round invites will be sent this afternoon/early evening. Until then, I will be checking this thread and my email... Often!

    Interviews are next weekend. I def won't be back for final round. Wasn't 100% tight in the first one. Enjoyable though

    Curious how many others here are going for a Gray's Inn residential scholarship? Has anyone seen figures for average number of people vying for it in past years?

    No idea, fwiw I'm not, although I am waiting to hear back about an ordinary scholarship.

    considering only ordinary scholarship winners are even considered that means only around 40 potential candidates for 4 spots. i'd guess personally that most people applied so around 35 i'd say

    I wouldn't think most people applied - I didn't and it appears someone else on this thread didn't either, if that's anything to go by. Just a tip, I've spoken to someone who has a residential scholarship and he said it's good to show your commitment to Gray's, so I'd be sure to know a little something about the Inn and show that you'd actively contribute to life at the Inn. Good luck!

    I'm not so sure about there being that many—those aiming to do BPTC outside of London (presumably) wouldn't intend to live here.

    Haven't applied for residential scholarship either. Anyone else enter the Lee or Bellof competitions and have any news on when we might find out?

    Nothing.... Unless none of us on the forum have been successful it seems they might still be waiting to send out the invites/rejects. Frustrating! Half thinking of calling them?

    To my knowledge there's no dedicated 2016 BPTC scholarship results thread, although there's a GDL thread and a thread for next year's BPTC scholarships.
