    Is it worth applying for US law firms direct TC applications like Weil, Goodwin and Orrick. Has anyone had any luck with these direct TC applications.
    Second this. I know Orrick and Goodwin have a pretty consistent direct TC intake. Weil appears to be, for all intents and purposes, a sole recruiter from its vacation scheme despite having a direct TC option, however, if anyone has info to the contrary I'd love to be proven wrong as I'd really like to apply in the summer!

    Sorry if this is a stupid question, but what are people’s thoughts on accepting an Easter Vac Scheme if you have accepted another in summer? If you accept a TC from the first one, are you still able to complete the summer one and potentially change your mind? Thanks!

    You can’t sign a contract and then do a vac scheme elsewhere. I know some people who have asked the tc they got at Easter to give them an extension to make the decision but not all firms say yes

    I did my VI 12th December😭, they confirmed 6th March that they are still going through VIs and will get back to us in next few weeks😩
    Very strange, I did mine on the 12th of January and they got back to me with a PFO on 15th of Feb. It was a month turnaround for me. Maybe it's a good sign and you are being considered?
