Its the same comment on this thread and frankly i'm tired of it. This type of thing is normally spoken by people who couldn't secure a MC training contract or a full time offer at a top BB investment bank.

Yeah but you didn't know that barristers may also work for law firms so lets not belittle OP for making mistakes. I'm surprised somebody who hasn't even completed A levels is speaking in a patronising tone to a young girl.
Right, and belittling someone that's "belittling" someone is really going to get you somewhere.

Also, what has not completing A-levels got to do with anything? I'm a law student at university, so if anything I'm studying beyond that at the moment.

Midget's a law student

OP is clearly a mid-achieving dolt who knows **** all about anything, so crediting them with awareness of the fact that some firms (most of them non-MC) have in-house advocates is a bit too much.
Yes we all agree OP needs to do her research frankly its quite embarrassing but its not right for "midget" to patronise her and i think we can both agree she probably didn't even know that barristers may work at law firms.

Christ the arrogance on this forum is astounding even with my a*s i suffer impostor syndrome.

echelp123 In my previous comment I meant that students should not obsess about the magic circle when there are plenty of other excellent firms. I believe this especially important when one looks at how fierce competition for them is. Peace out

You don't really learn either way though do you?
Not really. A levels are important for law.

p.s you can't really be beyond something if you haven't completed it especially given that most firms want A levels.

I haven't secured either but I don't like seeing comments discouraging people from applying to the top firms. You really are immature but your comments are just annoying.

You literally just told me that my Access grades pretty much aren't going to get me anywhere.

So which is it, are you a white knight or an egotist? :lol:

Honestly I'll be bitterly honest with you - theres absolutely no way you will secure any sort of training contract because 1) you didnt do A levels 2) your university isn't highly ranked.

Best of luck though.

I've done first year schemes and spoken to some of the recruiters about my situation already, the majority of them said that if I perform well throughout my degree then I shouldn't have a problem securing a TC.

If I didn't have much hope then I'd very much doubt I'd be accepted onto these schemes in the first place.

Its not arrogant to speak the truth. I'm surprised somebody of your old age isn't as blunt with her as I am - i guess its because of your strange entj ways.

The cliquishness of this forum is pretty annoying, I must confess. Everyone jumps in on it like a package of teenage lasses on the blob and clicking fingers like some sassy bishes.
