    Hey guys! I'm filling out the application form for the GDL and I'm not sure where I should list my work experience (things like mini pupillages). I've entered everything under the employment history section, and then written 'work experience' instead of full/part time, but now I've seen that they mention work experience for the personal statement. Should I write about it there instead?

    I think its fine to mention them in both, as long as youve mentioned it. In the personal statement then try and give it a different angle by explaining what you got out of it and your motivation to study. I honestly thought all they really wanted was your money. Dont overplay it.

    Do people get turned down from GDL's?

    That's great, thanks! No, I don't think anyone really does get turned down, so I'm not overly worried about it, but don't want to fill out the form some weird way.
