Hogan Lowell’s PFO. Do they share WG results if asked?

Hi,

re HL, I remember seeing on this forum(several times) that people emailed grad rec if they got rejected because they wanted to know if rejection was because of the app or WG scores(in the end it was because of their application IIRC). Perhaps it might be best to contact the graduate recruitment team at HL? They’re very speedy at responding in my case.

also I haven’t heard back yet, if you can remember , may I ask when you applied and did the WG? I haven’t heard a peep, fingers crossed. Good luck for all the other apps!

Yeah and they said that they would only be in contact with successful applicants post-app, so that's why I'm asking here regularly

Don't think there's anything else that can be done except waiting
Oh okay i see.
Just to let you know, there’s a phone number contact on one of the recruitment pages for graduates (I’m not sure if this is firm wide or for the London office). Perhaps that’s the only line of contact we as candidates can have with Paul Hastings as of now?
Thanks for letting me know.

    Interview invite for Akin Gump TC. The email says I will receive a short article the day before that will form part of the interview. If anyone has any experience with this or just advice/tips in general I'd be very grateful.

    Would also be good to know how long the interview lasts if anyone has already done it
    Same here, would be extremely grateful!

    Hey, I recently did an article interview for Freshfields and was successful, I’m not sure how similar the format of your interview will be but feel free to drop me a message as I’m more than happy to share how I prepared if you think it would be helpful! :)

    I'm still waiting to hear, I sent grad rec an email this morning asking if they had a timeline for when we can expect to hear and if they'll provide the Watson Glaser score, I'll let you know if/when I get a reply! Good luck
    Hiya - did they respond to you by any chance? Was invited to the WG to be completed by the 6th of Sep - so clearly the recruitment process is still going.

    Is there a way to contact them? No email on their recruitment page (from what I can see).

    Just in case you guys are wondering I've just had an interview invite (which I had to decline). I suspect given how late in the cycle it is there will be plenty in the same boat as me.
