    Hi Jessica,

    I managed to secure some vacation schemes in 2018 but have had little success in recent cycles. I think my answers are strong but I think there is a possibility that my extenuating circumstances for my A-level grades might be a hindrance. Do you have any tips on how best to navigate the mit circs section in terms of wording?

    Hi there - I saw on the thread that you have a first stage interview at Bristows. I was wondering when you found out about this? I received an email two weeks ago saying that partners were reviewing my video interview and wondered how long it took for them to reply after this? Thanks and best of luck with your interview!!!!

      Hi! I completed my video interview maybe a week after submitting my application (so very early on). I received the same email as you about the partners reviewing it on March 5th and I have been invited to the first stage interview on Friday (13th) early morning. I know someone who got rejected before I got my invite so could be positive if you have not heard back yet? Not sure but hope this helps! Thank you so much!

    Hi Jaysen,

    I have messaged you on Linkedin about this, apologies if you read the same thing twice! As you have interviewed with Arnold & Porter, are you aware as to if they sponsor international students? I have not been able to find any information online, graduate recruitment have also not gotten back to me. The application does ask if you require a visa to work in the UK.

    Kind regards,
    Suhail

      Hi Suhail - wish I could help but I'm afraid I didn't interview at Arnold & Porter - the post you saw was likely me posting on behalf of an anonymous candidate! In terms of whether they sponsor international students, your best bet for a response would be to call them :)

    Hi Jessica,

    I am a practicing lawyer in India and I have cleared my MCT exam under QLTS Scheme. I also got LLM offer from the UK university.
    So with this aforesaid qualification, after my LLM can I apply and get a training contract before clearing my OSCE exam?

    Regards

      If you are looking to take the QLTS, then a training contract would not be appropriate for you as you would have qualified

    Hi Karin, I saw that you did PWC career conversation. Would you mind telling me the format, types of questions they ask and any suggestions you have regarding it? Thank you so much!

      Hi! Congrats!

      Be prepared to answer a lot of competency questions and talk a lot about your interest in the firm. I am a law student so I was asked one technical question.

    Hello! I've seen from posts from last year that you had an AC at AG last year. I have an AC coming up on Monday and would be incredibly grateful for any advice that you can give, particularly any obscure questions / details on the case study. Thanks so much :)

    Hi, Elizabeth. Hope you are well! I saw your post regarding Macs AC and was wondering if you were able to get through? Do you have any tips for the in-tray exercise?

    Hi EJ,

    I trust you are well. Congrats on securing an AC at Burges!

    I applied and unfortunately did not make the cut this year. Felt as if I had a strong application and I am not sure where I went wrong. I would really appreciate if you could let me see your answers to the application to get a feel of what they are after? My email is j.prior@my.bpp.com.
    Thanks in advance!!
