The best advice was given earlier -> plan your interview timings very well. Try to schedule your first choice firm first, not last.

Ahhh but my first choice only replied to schedule my interview a week after the other B4 scheduled an interview with me, so it was quite impossible to schedule.

Is it common to withdraw from TC after accepting or not very common?

The only ones who withdraw from TCs are those who were offered JLCs, to which the firms would understand. Hopping TCs from one firm to another is NOT socially acceptable, especially within the big firms.

Handle it like an adult.

If you are really leaving with a good reason (and there's no reason why this can't be because you think you fit better into a different firm, ofc don't be an idiot and say "I think that firm is better than yours"), be upfront about it, email the partner and cc HR, thank them for the opportunity to interview and explain why you want to withdraw from the training.

If you are leaving for very superficial reasons, lie.

Personally, I think the timelines are very unreasonable and TC withdrawals, while not common, are not rare either.

Just some honest advice, the legal industry is extremely cut throat. If you can't navigate such a situation, I don't think you can survive in the industry anyway.

SLB is a dying firm whereas A&G is one of the top. But A&G will work you like a dog.
