    Hey guys!

    I'm panicking because I've just submitted my application form for my GDL on CABs and I've paid the fee, written all the information they need, etc. My application status now says that the form has been submitted and I need a reference. I've given the details of my referee, but he sent me an email this morning saying that when he tries to log on it says 'reference is no longer required'. I still need the reference though I've tried contacting CABs but they haven't responded.

    What do I do?

    How have you tried contacting them and when was this? Maybe ring?

    You're just going to have to wait for a response then. Maybe get your referee to email as well. There are notes for referees here. They say 3-5 working days so if you emailed last week has it been that long?

    Yeah its been that long but no response. I've had a look at the notes n the website, and my referee also said he's not had a response either.

    You can send a reminder but other than that there's not much else you can do but wait.

    I've called the law school I've applied to to make them aware of this, and they've responded telling me that I don't even appear on the system.

    I just wish Law CABS would actually provide a telephone number if this is how unreliable their online system is... :/
