    Anyone know which firms actually prioritise RG/Oxbridge grads?

    I understand that there is a huge misconception that firms prioritise RG candidates when in reality this is largely incorrect. However, does anyone know of firms that actively do engage in this practise?

    i.e. Sherman and sterling have 4% non RG trainees.

    Hogan Lovells PFO post WG. I did feel the WG went awfully so was sort of expected - onwards and upwards :)

    Am i still able to request my WG score?
    Got a lovely PFO from Hogan Lovells aswell. But I thought I did well on the WG.
    In fact I asked for and received the WG report from Linklaters after their PFO from the winter vac, and I did exceptionally well, so what the heck were they looking for?
    I'd be interested in getting a WG report for Hogan Lovells too, but I can't find the relevant contact info.
