A few questions:

Any news from Park Square Barristers? Their deadline was last Friday but I've not seen any posts regarding interviews there.

Any info greatly appreciated, thanks!
Nothing from Park Square Barristers yet but I wasn't expecting anything for a little while yet from previous experience with other applications

Now on first interview...(5EC)
I have the same for 5 Essex Court. Since it was the only Gateway set I applied to, I can't contrast it with any others, and Pupillage Gateway applicant user guide does not help me resolve this ambiguity:

Checking the status of your applications
As chambers begin shortlisting applications the status of your applications will update in your account to reflect the stages they have currently reached. You can see the latest status by clicking on Your Account then scrolling to the Current Applications list. (Page 11)
Does "first interview" mean the stage 5 Essex Court has reached, or the status of my application specifically?

5 Essex anyone?
(Original post by Pupillage2017)
Status change for me to "Under Consideration". No email or further information yet though.....
(Original post by Thisisdire)
No change here yet. Do we know what the under consideration one means ?

Now on first interview...(5EC)
Further to my post a moment ago re 5 Essex Court, I have discovered this user guide for chambers which gives hints about the statuses—they are individualised to each of us. See page 20 §5.5: http://www.pupillagegateway.com/wp-c...User_Guide.pdf

Hi there. Yes your application - "first interview" means you are being offered a first interview with them. Status changes such as "shortlisted" and "under consideration" are used in different ways by different chambers to group applications together and as an internal tool to show which forms have, and are, being looked at. Shortlisted often changes to first interview but not always. Bottom line, the only thing you can really be sure about is an interview, offer or unsuccessful status change.

Any news from Serjeants' post first round? I know they said they would be slightly delayed in giving us the outcomes but it should be this week I would have thought....

Yeah just realised they were sent out before the 10th. Getting a little bit fed up with these silent rejections.

Same here, although I'm only a victim of one so far.

I'm seriously thinking of writing to the head of chambers and the head of the pupillage committee if I can identify it and politely put to them the cost benefit ratio of expending just a tiny amount of effort in letting the unsuccessful people know in a timely manner. I have no qualms about identifying myself and don't think it would preclude me from applying to their chambers in the future. After all, if a reasonable suggestion were to put a black mark against me for having the audacity to speak up, then I wouldn't want to be a part of that chambers anyway.

I edited through Adobe Acrobat and inserted a new page after part c then copy and pasted the box down to add more info. Hope that makes some sort of sense!

I have had a fair few now and completely agree with you in the sense that it certainly clouds your view of the chambers. Granted there are hundreds of applications to sift through but there are lots of chambers who manage to send out polite rejections with what appears to be relative ease.

While I'm venting has any clarity been gained on the 15NBS front? The only thing worse than a silent rejection is a chambers which pulls the pupillage after the deadline and iv heard rumours that this might be the case...

Are you Welsh?
Do you have a Welsh name?
Do you speak Welsh?

If not, then expect rejection.

If you have answered yes to the above, then they are currently working through their alphabet with replies, so if your names begins with a vowel - you might not hear at all

In seriousness - good luck.
