    They predominantly seem to be recruiting via their vac scheme now and they do highlight that there is the possibility of getting a TC for everyone on their VS, so based on that I’d assume that everyone who applied for the direct TC, might be slightly dependent on people’s success on the VS. There are max 100 TCs and 90 places on the VS (but they obviously may not fill all the places on their VSs or even all their TCs), so there’s a good chance that people won’t hear until after the VS depending on how many of those 10 places they have already filled. Hope that makes sense

    Yeah I was thinking this actually. Does that mean that they will hold off on rejecting anyone who have applied for Direct to TC until after all the VSs?

    I don’t think that would mean that they’d necessarily have 90 TC places for vac schemers though... they realistically know that not everyone who does a vac scheme will get a TC. Also people will have to hear back about TCs before the vac scheme because there’s another TC recruitment before the summer vac scheme. Also the vac scheme is made up of different potential intakes with people in penultimate and final year and people doing law and non-law so it’s not as straightforward as the individual numbers suggest.

    No they definitely won’t do this, there have already been ACs for the TC

    Yes, they take 100 people for both intakes together and not everyone on the Winter Vac scheme got a TC, plus there are a limited number of TCs available outside of the VS. I do think there is some correlation between the VS and the amount of direct TCs and that might result in some people having to wait a bit longer, but as with everything, nobody knows what really happens

    Anyone heard from linklaters post AC on Tuesday? I’ve read that most people heard back the very next day so I’m getting a bit anxious :/

    I've not heard of anyone who got AC's this week.. at the same time, no rejections either.

    What are LL playing at?

    I’m trying to stay positive about receiving an AC invite but I can’t help but think it’s going to be a PFO

    I know so a lot of people who have not heard back at all. Last year LL rejected people earlier on.

    I sent an email this morning for Direct TC and was told I’ll hear back by next week. Sounds grim tbh.
