    oh yeah, mine says that too. I guess it's a no. Can't even say I'm disappointed at this rate. Been expecting this for the past couple of weeks. Hope they do formally let us know though.
    Does your application have all your answers missing?? I have just checked mine, and it looks like I didn't answer the application questions, but I wouldn't have been able to move on and submit without answering them all, plus I know I did answer them because I have spent so long on it

    Yeah, my answers have gone too. I don't know what's happened. Oh well I guess...

    Yeah but they’ve just opened for new applications so I’m just taking it as a no

    Anyone who has already done the Freshfields AC got any advice? Particularly in relation to the analytical interview.
    HI, a bit late but for the analytical one its usually a case study and id suggest watching a few MBB case interviews as I had a business case not a legal one. My feedback was that I wasn't confident in my answers even tho they were right so focus on a self assured delivery :) best of luck

    Anyone successful with travers smith know, is it a big mistake if we didn’t explicitly say we’re applying to the firm because of its PE and corporate strength in the cover letter? I implied that I’m interested through writing about work experience in venture capital and by saying this led me to be interested in the complexity of such global work
    I vaguely mentioned its corporate practice (talked about its corp governance work), FS reg and litigation - didn't mentioned PE at all and I got an interview for direct TC so I don't think it matters. As long as you explain your motivations clearly + link this to the firm you should be fine
