Impossible seeing as California is a 3 day bar.

I had the same idea because of my employment situation. But yep, from what I understand (I'd be happy to be corrected him I'm wrong), you pretty much can't take any other Bar if you're doing CA.

It's really fucked that MA won't let you waive in either. "Oh, you passed the most difficult bar in the country and you're trying to practice in the state with the easiest bar in the country? Sorry, bro."

You can waive in after you've practiced somewhere else for 5 years. Very few states let you actually waive in based on your score, without the practice requirement, so Massachusetts is totally normal in this.

Oh, shit. I assumed that the other states that allowed waiver didn't impose a time spent practicing requirement. Well, then those states are fucked up, too. :(
