    Does anyone have experience of the one-day selection process at Lamb Building? Three interviews and a written exercise sounds intense

    Just to let people know who are calling to arrange Goldsmith interviews they need your application number, which is found by opening up your applications on the gateway and looking at the numbers that appear the the end of the address bar.

    Following on from this, can anyone remember what the woman said the structure would be? I have written down to arrive 10 mins early and that there will be a 30 min problem Q and 15 min interview... So does that mean we'll be questioned for 45 mins or we'll have 30 mins to consider the question and then 15 mins to respond...? Anyone have any further info?

    Is that a lot? I thought that was about average.

    I'm starting to feel a bit despondent now - without wanting to put them down, Goldsmiths were my fallback plan and now I'm thinking if I can't even get shortlisted for them, what are my chances on some of the other heavyweight chambers on which I'm still waiting responses???

    Does anyone have a slot at the "pre-interview selection evening" at St Philips, Birmingham, on Tuesday 21st June that they are willing to swap for 5:30 on Wednesday 22nd? Unfortunately I simply can't do the Wednesday as I won't be in the country.

    Thanks!

    Nope, I also haven't heard anything at all. Strange when people have been hearing both ways

    I literally just got an invite to the pre-interview. Seems like they're just taking their time.

    I would try not to let it get to you which is so much easier said than done I know. But there have been a number of sets I thought I completely fitted the profile for, particularly a number of regional sets where I have shown a clear commitment to the region, and iv been rejected but then I have received interviews from sets which I thought were completely out of my league. It's such an arbitrary process.

    On a separate note, I have currently had (or have coming up) 6 first round interviews from non-gateway sets but 0 from gateway sets has anyone else had this problem?

    With regards to the number of applications to goldsmiths I would say that is quite low in comparison with other sets as I know a number of places that receive in excess of 500 applications.

    On a final note, has anyone heard from Nexus yet?

    You shouldn't be. Goldsmiths is the only PG set that have rejected me so far and i've had final rounds at top sets like 42BR in the past. So don't let this or any other rejections get you down….we are all on the same boat!

    I was very concerned with a post here about 15nbs pulling their pupillage vacancy, as I spent a lot of time on the application. So I called then and I'm glad to find out that this is not the case. I was advised that they are still going through the applications and would contact candidates soon.

    Although she refused to specify any timescale when we should expect to hear back, but at least the process is still ongoing.
