Agree.

It's quite sad that this is the view that most law students and junior assocs hold. It will take a few years for them to gain some ... prespective ....

At the end of the day, they will either agree or disagree.

There will be enough people who agree and they will continue to perpetuate this unhealthy view of the profession... and we will be back at sqaure one.

It's difficult to fight against the tide of such indoctrination. It's much better to just do our own thing and wish our juniors well.

Hi Seniors, I attended a TC interview at a big 4 firm reputed for its corp practice. While I was given a case study for the interview, I was not questioned on my answers to the case study. Further, the interviewers also did not give me a firm answer on whether I was accepted or rejected. How long should I wait before following up with the firm/recruitment partners? The firm is located near OUE.

Thanks!

That firm gives out TCs very quickly.. usually they already know if they taking you and the interview is purely a formality (unless you bomb the case study or interview badly).

If you don't receive a TC by one to two days, chances are you not getting it already unless alot of ppl reject them. I had friends who got an offer a few days to one week after, but those were very rare.

So I can assume itís over and start looking for another firm if I donít hear back within a week?

what do you mean when you say "usually they already know if they taking you"?

do you mean purely based on the application form, or interview performance, etc.?

because for ppl who didn't intern there, you don't submit your CV as part of your application, so it's strange to think that the interview is a mere formality

They take you purely on the basis of your application, mostly grades, with slight to low focus on non-academic parts your CV (such as mooting if you are going to litigation).

If your gpa is high you can bomb the whole interview and get in.
