    I really wanted to apply to No5; I did a mini-pupillage there and it was by far my favourite set. But after looking at the application form I'm not risking spending absolutely hours filling it out for it to not send. Plus I have a mac, and macs tend to not like those sorts of forms... If I'm still applying next year hopefully they'll go back to the old-faithful Word application form!
    Dedication, late nights and a lot of patience with application forms are needed if you are going to get pupillage. I would say it's worth your time if it really is your favourite set.

    I agree 100%! Not shouting at you, but if you can't be bothered filling out a simple form which is nothing compared to what you would do in practice. Then "why should we invite you to interview....."

    I pressed save on the No 5 pupillage portal (to submit it). The page just refreshed & didn't go blank - has anyone else experienced this today?

    I received a reply; the form had to go blank and not just refresh for it to send. Your DOB has to be MM/DD/YYYY and all boxes need something in them I.e n/a. Mine sent after changing the DOB format!

    Did you receive a confirmation email? I haven't. Very much questioning the reliability of the extension of their application process...

    Ok that's a concern. When did you send yours/receive the confirmation email if you don't mind me asking? I had a problem with my emails a few days ago and I'm hoping this wasn't caught in the mix!

    Hi there
    I applied a couple of weeks ago and asked them for confirmation of safe receipt in my covering email. Hope that helps. They came back the same day.

    Sounds like somebody missed the deadline for applications...

    You're a goblin, not a troll. Behave accordingly.

    I second that. They were at the pupillage fair as far as I know and they are known to offer 2 pupillages per year.

    Not sure what the consequences are though.

    Guilty! But that's because I use the Gateway advertisements to track closing dates.
