    Had my first Law interview today - could have been better, but it could have been much worse. The actual interview itself was OK, but the case they gave me beforehand freaked me out a bit. Hope I got the gist of it correctly! My interviewers were so lovely though and put me right at ease.

    Although, it's a bit worrying that everyone else's Law interviews didn't go well (from what I've seen on here) - I've heard that if you found it horrible you've actually done well, but if you found it OK you've actually done really badly...

    Haha I wouldn't worry mine was terrible and there's absolutely no way it actually went well 😂

    Hey guys, I'm staying at St Hugh's from the 14th to the 15th and was hoping to get to go there on the 13th already to avoid stress and to get to settle down (I'm from overseas). I sent them an email about this a few days ago but they still haven't replied. What do you think I should do? Just wait? Send another one or try to contact them in some other way? I'm getting pretty nervous since I'll be traveling on my own without an Internet connection, and my London hotel reservation (I'll be staying there for a couple of days) ends on the 13th and I don't want to end up having nowhere to sleep

    Call the college and confirm that they got your email! I'm sure they would have no problem accommodating for an extra day but double check so that you're not left stranded. They have all the contact details on their website so call and speak to whoever you can

    No :/ Oriel and St John's.
    I was just wondering if anyone had received some sort of schedule for the day, but I don't think anyone has

    Sort of-- basically I was so nervous in my first interview that I wasted lots time on some questions... ended up the tutor just seems inpatient and turns out I was asked less questions than others... guess this doesn't happen a lot...

    Yeah, that's fine - tutors are really going to pay no attention

    Law interview was so difficult I almost broke down basically had 1 question throughout the entire interview

    Me too!
    I felt like every answer I gave was responded to with a question and absolutely no indication of right or wrong... so when I went off on a tangent it was horrrrrible!

    I applied for human sciences but I totally feel the same way, every answer I gave they just kept asking more and made me feel like I hadn't been clear the first time or something so they were trying to get a better answer that never came hahaaa, oh well that one is over now

    I know exactly how you feel... they just kept drilling the same question over and over!

    For me, it didn't help that the other person sitting in on my interview kept making weird noises, almost like she was laughing at my answers?!
    So hard to have any idea if it was good or bad...

    Which college are you at?
