Hi all, was hoping to get a bit of insight about direct TC apps. I have a vac scheme in July, but I was planning to send a few direct TC applications (deadlines vary between May and July) in case I fail to convert.
1. Should I include my vac scheme (which I have not completed yet) in my direct...
I have a vac scheme this summer, but I'm really worried that I won't be able to convert it to a TC. I think I'm also under extra pressure because this is the only vac scheme I've got this cycle and would be devastated if I failed to convert.
I'm aware that I shouldn't go into the vac...
I just had two more questions that I would like to get everybody's thoughts on:
1. Bare legs
When I volunteer in court I usually see barristers wearing tights if the skirt they're wearing is above the knee. If I wear a dress that's slightly below the knee, would I still need to wear tights so...
This is an old thread but if anyone's still here please can I have your thoughts :D I have a vac scheme in London in July and I have no idea what to wear. This is my first formal work experience where I have to go into the office so I don't really know what is expected of me. And because of...

I have vac scheme offers from firm A and firm B. Firm B offered a place which runs from the second to fourth week of july (dates already confirmed).
Firm A's vac...
In case anyone is still interested, thought it'd be good to clarify what actually went wrong — sorry I posted the above when I was really emotional lol. After I had calmed down, I ended up emailing PwC grad rec because I was just curious whether it was my performance on the Arctic Shores test...
If I have an offer for a vac scheme in July, is it reasonable to ask for an early response from grad rec from firms that have been ghosting me post-VI/post-WG but have not invited me to AC? I'm aware that grad rec would be understanding of candidates who have attended ACs but haven't heard back...
