Is anyone else still waiting post app for BCLP? I applied in late November. I really don’t get it! I’ve seen people who applied a few days before the deadline of 31st Jan to be given interviews and then got VS offers. Have they not read my application yet? Am I in the hold pile? I don’t understand
Yep - I applied mid-Jan, did the assessment, and haven't heard anything since :(

    when you apply to Debevoise 4 days ago but still get an invite :rolleyes::D

    Is everyone who applied just being invited to open days then ?
    Wow I didn’t realise that deadline was actually a new deadline I thought it was a glitch.
    Has anyone still not heard anything?

    I did this VI for my top firm just over two weeks ago and since then total silence!

    I am getting really frustrated and restless, constantly checking my emails. I know quite a few people who have been progressed within a couple or so days after completing the VI, and most of them completed their VIs after me...I just don’t understand why I seem to be waiting much longer than other people. Especially since they said they will be reviewing the VI on a rolling basis.

    I feel like it won’t be good news but why take sooooo long to let me know?? I also think what if they didn’t receive my video responses? This is such a nightmare and I don’t know how much longer I can take this.


    I don't know, should I email or wait more? Anyone have any thoughts? I genuinely am getting so affected by this and hate feeling like this.

    Maybe I am missing something but I feel like it's not that hard from a firm's perspective to send out a mass email to candidates who have been waiting over the wait period specified on their website i.e the way Osborne Clarke did it where they sent an email that it will be two more weeks of a wait for a response. It definitely stands out to me when a firm sends an update that it respects candidates time.
