Don't worry about it. To be fair, it has given me a kick up the butt to try and get a better CV, even though I thought mine was good enough already. Plus I was told by grad recruitment that it's much harder for you to stand out without any university grades yet, ee favouring four year courses.

Anyone had any news from Simmons & Simmons?

Well I actually am on a four year course so I have my first-year grades.

I got my rejection email from Allen & Overy this morning. Here's hoping for Linklaters and HSF, but if not I do have my DLA Piper place anyway.

I found it alright because it was a combination of situational judgement (which I had done for A&O's assessment), a Watson-Glazer (which I had done for Linklaters' Pathfinder scheme) and then a personality section which I was just honest for.

I did the HSF test and it said I'd hear on the next page how I did? but it just said processing go to assessments page to see, But there is nothing there. How do I find out how I did? or does it take a few days ?

You will get an email telling you how you did within a day or so.

Can I ask, when did you apply to A&O? Congrats on DLA btw.

Not for everyone - I took the test a week ago and haven’t heard anything yet.

Presumably it’s if we failed the test we don’t hear then. Have you tried logging into your account? I found out AO rejected me after passing the scheme by that.

The ninth of February I think from looking at my records, why do you ask? Thanks

Just got a phone interview for A&O. Also just heard back from Baker McKenzie with an offer - would love to connect with anyone else doing the scheme.

I asked because I applied on the 10th , and was just wondering if they respond to everyones at certain time periods, or if they respond on a case to case basis within their 21 day requirement.


Good luck with DLA.

It shows “Under Review” still.

Ah I see. It's seemingly a bit random then.
