Failing Bar Exam After Lateraling

Postby Anonymous User » Sat Feb 24, 2018 10:38 pm

Hey everyone,

I so lateraled to a secondary market with a pretty rough bar exam (don't want to say which) and I'm pretty sure I am going to fail. I'm sure my firm will let me retake, but honestly, I'm not sure I want to do this again. I would probably retake though and try to pass one more time. Say I do try again and fail, and my firm lets me go, does this in any way affect my bar admission in the state I am already barred in?

Just want to make sure I'm not messing up my life here, other than just generally being embarrassed at work and maybe lateraling back to my home state.
