    £12k award plus earnings in second 6 - i.e. around the £14k-£15k region in total, as they keep you very busy.
    £2K - £3K for six months [very busy] work doesn't sound particularly attractive.

    Oh I assumed that meant 12k + 15-16k?

    Any tips for cover letters?
    I only only did a few but the advice I was always given was to make sure that they don't read formulaically. There's always some similar structure, but you don't want it to come across as if you've got the same letter being sent to a dozen chambers.

    Remember to always evidence what you're claiming. If you say that you're a hard worker and a strong advocate make sure to give examples but don't just say that you mooted and got a 2:1. Show why you, compared to others, have experiences which show your skills more effectively.

    Also make sure to get a few different people to read over your letter (not just one).

    Hope that helps!

    I suspect we'll find out the week before the open evening. Most likely to be w/c 13 June.

    Thank you! I've seen you on TSR a fair bit and I always wondered in interview waiting rooms whether I was talking to various people I knew on TSR...

    I'll post here as a couple of people have asked so it's probably easier than sending out a bunch of individual messages

    I interviewed at:
    1COR Brighton (2nd rounds)
    25 Bedford Row (up to 3rd rounds)
    2 Bedford Row (1st rounds)
    Atkinson Bevan (1st rounds)
    Goldsmith (1st rounds)
    John Coffey (single round)
    Red Lion (1st rounds and single round - 2014 was a two round process, 2015 was single)
    187 Fleet St (2nd rounds)
    Carmelite (2nd rounds)
    15 Winckley Square (Preston) (single round)
    St Johns Buildings (Mancs) (1st rounds)
    Lincoln House (Mancs) (2nd rounds)
    KBW Leeds (2nd rounds)
    New Park Court (Leeds) (1st rounds)
    Dere St (Newcastle) (1st rounds)
    Trinity (Newcastle) (2nd rounds)

    Edit: This sent accidentally before I could say good luck this year!!

    Mine Still rests on 'Applied' meaning that I am, albeit it naïvely, holding out hope.

    Pretty sure they're doing it in batches. I know of some people who have been rejected already, some shortlisted and some still say applied. I assume the applied ones just haven't been looked at yet. They're a huge set and receive a huge amount of applications - over 500 apparently. This is all hearsay though my status says shortlisted.
