    Hi everyone,

    I have been a bit absent on here of late and that is because I was unsuccessful with Latham after my VS with them and it was a crushing disappointment in all honesty, as I am sure you guys can imagine. But, everything happens for a reason and I have taken my time to be upset and pick myself back up. This does mean I am reapplying this year (today was my first proper delve into researching events etc) and I will be more involved with the platform this coming year!

    I also just wanted to say I spoke with A&O's grad rec team today and for those applying for direct TC's they said not to worry about applying really really early. I was concerned as I have not met the firm yet and wanted to wait for my uni law fair and an insight evening with them before I apply. It seemed to me that a late October/early November app would be ok. Just thought I would share as I appreciate the timing dilemma! They are rolling though and said that December apps would be considered late so just keep that in mind, I would say October would be good timing :)

    Great to hear from you again Alice. Desperately sorry and understand your pain. Do you know when the insight evening is - I cannot locate it?

    I've no doubt you'll secure a training contract soon as you're such a capable candidate, thanks for being so honest!

    Thank you all so much you really are so kind! And everything happens for a reason! :)

    @Helena I am going to one at my old university and i think it's called 'Get to Know A&O' but maybe it would be worth emailing grad rec and seeing if they would consider letting you do any of the evening events somewhere else if your uni is not easy to get to?

    Seeing some rejections for Mayer Brown on other sites, has anyone else heard back? I am still in the dark.

    I sent them a follow up email two weeks ago and no news yet still. When did you do your online tests? I did them in mid August. Are you still waiting to hear back since the tests?
