I've been asked to attend an interview for a KCL law scholarship - the dicksoon poon. I know that they're gonna talk about my essay, but I really don't know what to expect, and I'm especially nervous considering I haven't been to any uni-based interviews
Has anyone had a Dickson Poon related interview or had any scholarship based interview for that matter?
I'm desperate

Yeah, they e-mailed me two/three days ago
I don't know about everyone, but they asked me to book an appointment for my interview and when I went to the site a bunch of other people had already booked some in as well! I don't want to be the bearer of bad news, but...

Hey I feel exactly the same!! I've got an interview too, got literally no idea what they would ask aside from the essay we wrote for the scholarship. Not sure if it will focus on Personal Statement or the LNAT Essay etc? Mine is on Monday and I couldn't even get a good time as most of the slots were gone :/

Hi! I have mine in a few hours...I'm getting a bit worried because I haven't received a notification on Skype yet, are we meant to call them or do they call us? How did it go generally? I heard that they present a hypothetical scenario the way they do at Cambridge, but I really don't know what to expect.

Mine's at half 11 I'm super nervous as well! Just trying to make sure I know my application essay and my personal statement really well but there's not much else you can do I don't think
I haven't received anything either, I think they call us considering we don't have any of their skype info - I'm just gonna have my skype actually open half an hour before I start my interview
So far I noticed there was 45 of us, and they give scholarships to 30 people so you've got 2/3 chance, which is loads!
Just believe yourself, and remember that even if you dont get it, you still have your offer!
Good luck!

Hey guys. I've got my interview tomorrow and for those of you that have done it, is there actually a section for reasoning or is it many discussion of current events/ personal statement/ essay? Well done to all of you that have finished!

Hey I don't if you've done yours by now but if you haven't, it was mainly based on the personal statement, with them just drawing out your views and opinions on the things you've said there. There was a also a very short reasoning but it's nothing to worry about. They were super nice!

Mine was... interesting - I feel like some bits wen really really well, and other bits didn't - but they were all opinionated questions so I can't really be wrong
I got asked two questions about my personal statement, two about the themes of my essay and then a law based scenario in which they asked my opinion on a legal scenario (I wouldn't worry about that one too much though because a lot of people haven't studied law at A level (I'm not!) so it's probably just to see how you think!!!
Hope you do well and we might see each other tomorrow for the open day!
Good luck!

Hate to disappoint, but there are actually two rounds of applications. So it's probably more like a 1/3 chance. Still, hope to see you make it and meet you there!

Hey, me too! It looks quite new and nice, although they keep showing the same picture on their website...are you now going to accept their offer? I still can't make up my mind...
