Hi all, if I received a VS offer firm but was unable to accept this offer, do I mention this under the same section I talked about a VS I had at another firm? Or should I leave it out? Thanks! :)
No - you leave it out unfortunately.

People don’t highlight what they chose not to do in applications.

I’d wait to see if you are successful at getting an interview, and if you are, at that stage then inform them of the discrepancy.

It does matter, but there’s little point informing them until you know you have been shortlisted.
