    Does anyone have any advice on how to rate computer skills on an application form? The options are: poor, basic, good and very good. You're requested to provide details after selecting one of the options. Thank you!!

    Don't be nervous. You'll have so much more experience than you did before. I'm sure you'll be fine. You've done so well just to get to interview.

    Do you know anyone whose received a reply? IM was the first app so I'm not sure if the long wait is normal or not

    Nope, I don't know anybody who has received a reply yet.

    Having for all intents and purposes been rejected post-interview by Freshfields, I'm now wondering if it's a good idea to hedge my bets by doing a few last minute applications. Does anybody know of any non-rolling largish firms who are still open for applications? (I remember there might have been a list floating around here somewhere but I'm on my phone and can't seem to find it)

    I'm quite sure that Davis Polk are still open and aren't rolling. Worth a try given the application is only a cover letter and CV? Only issue is that they aren't a great firm to use as a hedge given how ridiculously competitive they are and how few places they offer. Same applies to Sullivan & Cromwell.

    Not sure if they are your cup of tea, but look at the US firms like Gibson Dunn, Cov & Burling, Davis Polk, Sullivan & Cromwell, Vinson & Elkins, Debevoise & Plimpton, K&L Gates, White & Case, Baker & Mckenzie and Sidley Austin. None of them roll.

    Also most firms which are still open will be receptive to an application.

    Congratulations!
    Thank you - Good luck with your upcoming interviews. Not much consolation, but interview performance is only likely to get better/Freshfields interviews are pretty hard too from what I hear.

    I wouldn't be reluctant about applying to some of the rolling ones at this time as well. For the December / early January deadlines, I know a fair amount of people who applied one or two days before the deadline and have still received AC invites

    Great - thanks a lot, mate.

    Congrats on the A&O offer

    Thanks a lot for the recommendations, didn't realise all of those were non-rolling! Am very much open to the idea of US firms so will certainly check those out.

    Haha don't be silly, you have a trillion interviews lined up at least! I've only got one more (which I fully expect to bomb) and then I have no idea what's going on with any of my other applications.

    I think full sentences are most appropriate.
    (Original post by J-SP)
    Doesn't really matter either way as long as it's written well (e.g with bullet points don't make it too short, with full sentences don't make it waffly) and is used consistently.

    Only thing with bullet points (especially if your C&P from another document) is to check the formatting in the online application. Before you submit, try printing a copy off (if you can) and check how it looks on the final version.

    Congrats to everyone who has AC and interviews! Best of luck!

    I've applied to 6 firms (mostly in Dec/early Jan) and had a rejection from one (Mishcon). No news from any others - with this being my second round of applications (last round only 1 interview), starting to wonder if I'm doing something majorly wrong!

    Is there a right way of answering the 'why haven't you managed to secure a TC so far' question in an interview/has anyone ever been asked this before?
