I've noticed that the Lincoln's Inn Scholarship Applications system is open and I haven't seen another thread on the topic, so I thought I'd start one

For myself, I've found the process less difficult than I thought (honestly there are TC applications which are way more irritating to complete) but I am stuck on the "Any other information you think we should know" question. I honestly don't have anything to put in. Do I have to write something? Should I include hobbies? Given that all your academic and work achievements are dealt with elsewhere and your motivation, I am really lost on what to write here...

Hey, I'm also applying for the scholarship! I think you're right, you could probably include hobbies and interests which could link to the skills needed. For instance if you run an online business page/blog or something like that, then I guess you could mention that and explain your responsibilities and skills developed.

I might be wrong, I think I'm going to confirm this with my careers advisor!

Well, pretty much everything would be covered under school or uni achievements/activities, hence it's pretty difficult to find anything to put in there.

The most important thing is having good notes and past year mock questions then you will pass in one shot. Let me know!

So I've just heard I've got an interview next month, but where do I get past or sample questions from? I've not seen any for Lincoln's...

I buckled and emailed them last week. Apparently they're going to be releasing the results this week sometime. Not much of it left now though 😣

It's so hard to concentrate on pupillage applications until I know one way or the other 🙈

But then again, he did say "we hope to make the results available...." so I suppose it could just be any time

I buckled and emailed again, got an automated reply saying they "hope to release the results of the shortlist week commencing 25th January".

I'm just finding it so difficult to concentrate on pupillage applications right now, not knowing if I'm even vaguely in the ballpark
