Hi everyone, we launched Congrapps 4 months ago to help graduates in the UK with their applications for Law Firms. Our idea was simple – to give you access to the verified past successful applications of the people who made it to your dream firm. You can then study them and understand how you need to write your own cover letter/application.
We now want to expand to Investment Banking and Finance. As this is a new industry for us, we want your opinion, feedback and concerns. Any input is highly appreciated.As we expand to this highly competitive industry we know that most of you have done tens of applications with many of them passing the initial application stage. We would love it if you could help us out by sharing the previously successful application(s) you might no longer need. Help us create the first-ever bank for past successful IB and Finance applications. We only need the answers to the application questions or cover letter. Of course, everything is anonymised (we are 100% GDPR compliant) and nothing may ever lead to a person’s identification.What’s there for you?
  1. You will get paid of course
  2. You will get free access to our database of hundreds of verified successful applications

For those interested, please DM us. You can also help us by completing this survey - it only takes 2 minutes! Let us know what your thoughts are: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/8CHSGG5

Any help is much appreciated, thank you!

How have law firms reacted to this? Wouldnt they regard it as cheating and a sort of collective effort?

We incentivise people not to plagiarise the content of the applications. The idea is for the students who are new to applying to understand what is needed from them. We believe that the process is very vague and uncertain for young applicants. You are told you should write a successful cover letter, but you have no idea what that letter should look like. Especially if you are in your first/second year of university.

At the same time, there are people in university that are more social and have more friends and they just ask around for help. Those people will usually have a greater advantage. Imagine being in first year and having a friend in third year helping you out with his successful applications. Unless you have such a "social" character it becomes much harder for you to obtain such information.

We are looking to level the playing field, but definitely not at the cost of plagiarism. We are providing content on what the best way to use these cover letters is and how to utilise them in writing your own application. As such, we have not had any queries raised by law firms.
