    Hi all,

    I’ve just submitted my Mayer Brown VS application and I was under the impression there would be online tests immediately following. However, all I’ve received is a confirmation email with no mention of tests.

    Has anyone else applied? Did you receive tests immediately? Or not at all?

    Thanks!

    A lot of firms check whether you are eligible to apply first before inviting you to tests. This is a fairly easy process but obviously needs someone in the office to do so.

    Thanks Jessica, I thought that might be the case. I’ll wait until Monday!

    Many teams are not back until the 6th so don’t be surprised if you don’t hear until that week.

    I believe the online test is Stage 2 in the application process for Mayer Brown, so your appication has to be progressed by Grad Rec. It took me 18 days to hear back from mine.

    Interesting. To me, the website suggested it was both at the same time. It does make sense for the tests to be ‘stage 2’ though so thank you for your input!

    Hi Oliver,

    I’m in the process of applying for Mayer Brown. Have you got any tips that can help my application stand out?

    Thanks.

    Just to say I applied in November and only just heard back about being progressed to the tests so this seems normal.

    I actually understood the very same, but I had to wait 1 month to receive the invite (application: 20/11 - invitation to tests: 23/12). + The email reads the following : 'I am pleased to inform you that we would like to progress you to the next stage in our recruitment process.'
    Now I am wondering if HR will screen our applications once again or if we will automatically be invited to the AC if we pass the threshold. I did not do that well to be honest but well...!

    congrats! the SJT was pretty straightforward, the verbal test was really wordy (you have to read long paragraphs for some individual questions) but not too terrible.

    Do you automatically get told if you’ve made the benchmark after you’ve completed the tests?

    Oh that’s annoying! I wonder if they’ve started reviewing applications yet after the tests.

    You only do the tests after they've reviewed your app.

    The stages are:
    1. Application Review
    2. Online tests
    3. Telephone Interview
    4. Assessment Centre

    So, do you think we'll automatically be invited to the phone interview if we pass the tests?

    Took the test 3 weeks ago, still nothing! But I applied for direct TC so the process might be longer :)
