I applied to A&O, HSF, Freshfields, Norton Rose. Weil, Simmons and Simmons and Baker Mckenzie. I know I passed the test for A&O but I haven't heard anything back since. All of my other applications say 'under review' but I don't know if I passed the tests or not. Anyone else in the same situation??

I'm waiting on the outcome to two schemes now. I think we just need to be patient and let things come as they may.

Did anyone hear back from hsf about the interview? Also, if applicable - was anyone asked to send over their uni exam transcript?

Got an email from them asking for my results on a word doc which I thought was a little weird and also difficult to comply with because they are all on blackboard. I can't download them separately without the essays and as a word doc. Ended up screenshotting them and putting them on a word doc :lol:
I've still not heard anything, and I would have done exactly the same thing with those results.

I'll update - Do we know if that means they are full and everything else is an expected PFO?

Ah, good stuff. Well, in that breath, congratulations!
Do you know of anyone who has been rejected post VI/TI? Trying to see how they are working all of this.

Hello, I was offered Baker after a VI, and I also know of others who've had rejections after a VI. Unfortunately there is no conversion path straight to a vac scheme or TC for Baker.

Did anyone else do a Weil telephone interview last week? Should I assume a silent PFO?

Cheers all.

The silence from by VI at Weil turned into a PFO. I'll update the big list.

Hey were you asked to interview for the HSF first year workshop/scheme? I read online that they didn't interview on bright network.
