    Hi All,

    To my surprise I have secured a place in the semi finals. If anyone wants to form a group for us to bounce ideas around, let me know.

    Additionally, if anyone has anyone guidance to impart for semi finalists please share.

    Hi Charlie,

    I think in the interest of all people who stumble across this thread, I'd be happy to discuss how we got here (I am a semi-finalist), here - and also what to expect for the semi finals? Do you have any ideas.

    My initial thoughts are that we must have excelled on other fronts as well as strictly our technical knowledge and structure of answers. Harri from AS alluded to this in Tuesday's call last week.

    Factually speaking, I did not do better than any others I was up against during the quarters... so I think that the outlying differential must've been the opinion based questions which, to be honest, I did not feel or think myself to be technically stronger in either...

    The main thing for the opinion questions were: having a structured discussion (not too short or too long) and using your voice (intonation, emphasis and enthusiasm) to really hone in on your opinions. I think that these must've set us apart.

    I wonder what you think? I'll be at Dechert's offices on Tuesday and wonder if I'll cross paths with you and if not where you chose to compete?
