    Thanks, that's a great help. When did you submit your application?
    I submitted on 03/12/2014, completed the test around 7th/8th and got an interview invite on the 15th. My interview isn't until the end of this month though, as I have exams up until the 24th!

    I'm wondering this too.

    How long does it take to hear back from freshfields roughly?
    I heard back about a week after I did my verbal reasoning test, and received an offer a couple of working days later - they're pretty good with being prompt. As it says on their website, they'll still be responding within 2 weeks, regardless of the inevitably large number of applications they'll have received leading up to the deadline.

    Me too - though they make it sound like they're near the end of recruiting this cycle

    Hey - I am an LPC graduate and have been applying for Vac Schemes there are some that are only open to people at certain points in their education but there are also lots that are open to people who are further on.

    Brilliant! It is very reassuring to know that there are lots of others out there who have completed their undergrad/LPC and are applying for Vac Schemes.

    If you don't mind me asking what kind of role are you doing at the moment? Paralegal?

    :cool:

    I seem to have been very unlucky - been rejected (pre-interview) from 4 firms now! Is this usual? (No offers of an interview yet either)........

    Video interview invite from KWM. Quite surprised as this means a) they are rolling this year unlike all previous cycles b) a new stage in their recruitment process.

    Plus I have no idea how a video interview actually works.

    Do Clifford Chance not wait until after the deadline to give out interviews. That it how it has been in the previous years? Is it the summer vacation scheme you applied to?

    Correct me if I'm wrong (haven't applied to CC) but think the deadline has passed so it would make sense

    Yes, Choccy is right, the deadline has passed for CC already.
