    Not yet, I’m also waiting to hear back from links. My application status is still ‘On hold’ though.

    I just checked my portal and it is in progress, but hasn't been updated since January, so I wouldn't necessarily place too much weight on what the portal says.

    Thought so, I think that is just an automatic response you get 6 weeks after you applied.

    Hey did you apply for the TC on the 16th of June? On the 1st of June I was meaning to apply to Links but their TC was no longer open(it only showed an Internship in India), so I assumed that the Deadline was on 31st May

    No biggie if so- just curious! Always the next opening :)

    Since the vast majority of Linklaters TCs are offered to vac schemers, I wonder if they're holding fire on some direct TC applications of borderline quality until the last of the 3 vac schemes has finished (the 10th-21st August).

    Have they actually accepted anyone for TC interview yet? It might be they just rejected people below the WG cutoff so far

    well, they usually have 100 places for VS across 4 different schemes and they offer 100 TCs and there is a TC for everyone on the VS if the person does well. Some will not accept the offer, some will be for a later intake (there was the option to choose between 2022 and 2023) and some will not get offered a TC altogether. But direct TCs will basically only go to a limited number of people depending on how much room there is left after the VS... it’s why I applied for the VS instead of the TC, I’d recommend doing this should you not be successful.

    I’d estimate that on an average year Linklaters probably offer around 80-85% of their vac schemers and of those offered about 80% will accept. Still means there could be a good 30 training contracts being offered directly.

    The acceptance percentage might be slightly higher this year, but even if it was 90%, would still be roughly 25 TCs.

    Yes that sounds about right. I think they offered 85% for the winter VS and it was 86% for the first summer one. There are definitely less direct TC places, but by the end it probably also depends on how many applications they receive for VS vs TCs.

    Things don’t change much, even after 15 years!!

    The key difference between deciding whether to apply for a direct TC and a vac scheme application at this time of year really is, do you want a job ASAP or are you willing to wait another year.

    Other considerations I have written about here:

    VS vs TC

    Why do we think higher numbers of people are accepting TCs this year? Keep seeing this comment for other firms too.
