    Applied, yes; heard back, no. I applied a few days ago. When did you?

    Beginning of December. Not sure if they tackle applications as they come or if they wait for the deadline to pass to send out invitations and rejections...

    I might get a late rejection for all we know. Best of luck with all your other applications anyway, I hope they work out.

    Inconsistent grades is my first thought because it was so rapid. I achieved 67% but my years were different, 2.2, 2:1, 1st.
    Ashurst do look for high 2.1s throughout

    That is unfortunate - keep trying something with come around, better to go to firms who welcome your application rather than those that scrutise it.

    Bit off topic, but would anyone be able to tell me when I should be applying for TCs as a non-law student? I'm currently in my penultimate year of uni (and have applied for a few summer schemes), but am a bit confused because it seems like some firms open their TC application window in both early summer and then again in the autumn. Any help would be very much appreciated!

    I applied at the end of November, they interviewed me last week and I got a TC offer, so don't worry if they take a while to get back to you.

    Nope! I imagine they're dealing with VS at the moment.
