    Hi everyone!

    i had an interview a few weeks ago for a gap year placement and on Tuesday I recieved an email of rejection. I thanked the person for their help and advice however I really wanted this placement. Should I email again and just thank them again and say that if anyone drops out, could you email me please? If so, how should I write it?

    thanks!

    I personally don't think that's a good idea tbh, because usually they let you know if they're putting you on a back up list in case of drop outs. You can try I suppose I just don't think it will work, and maybe you'll look desperate?

    Hope this helps!

    Hey thanks for your reply!

    I was initially rejected first but they said they were gonna ask for some more places and if they got those, they'd put me
    On but that didn't work so they emailed me saying you have been unsuccessful :/

    I just don't want to loose this opportunity if someone else drops out if you know what I mean? :/

    It just sounds like the fact that they got back to you to say you were unsuccessful shows they have filled their quota.

    I doubt that many will drop out as all the applicants mush want the placement otherwise they wouldn't have applied, you know?

    I'm sure in the unlikely case that someone drops out, they have a procedure that they follow, such as picking the next best applicant or something. And who knows, that might be you! I just don't think emailing them that you're still interested will make a difference, as surely they will assume all those that applied are interested?

    If it would make you feel better though, you can email them. I don't see how it will affect your chances

    Hmm, well if all your previous emails have been informal, stay informal (and vice versa) but that's quite obvious. I'm sorry I can't think of any specific advice

    Maybe just keep it brief, no need to waffle on.

    If this is for the programme that Pinsent Masons run then it won't work. If someone drops out last minute they will just go ahead without that person as there is no necessity for them to have X number of people on the programme. (Did the programme last year at their London office)
