trying to be calm until i need to be, though it is easier said than done. but check this out. this morning, i got an email from newegg.com, saying it had this deal going on: http://imageshack.com/a/img28/3517/l4r5.png

i im'd an offline friend saying xbox has a "brack friday bunduru" (recent south park reference). later he got on and started getting excited about bar results as always (he usually seems more agitated about it than i every single day). either i'm in denial about my whole heaven-or-hell situation, or i'm just cold hearted:

me: got a newegg newsletter this morning
there is an xbox brack friday bunduru

The file no. is the one you use every time you sign in on the state bar website. My file no. is 7 digits (starts with a zero - but once I've signed in, the website displays it as 6 digits, without the zero). If you don't have this number, the calbar website will email it to you upon a failed login.


My number is 4 digits on my badge (though started with a zero on the ticket). Do we know whether or not we're supposed to enter 4 digits or 5 digits?



Same question...which do we use? Ahhh. (Freaking out has officially started)

Ok.... officially signing off.

Everyone, just remember-- no matter what happens, life goes on.

If you pass, celebrate. You've earned it. You're officially licensed! This chapter of your life as a law student is closed. Be proud of getting through one of the hardest exams in existence. Tomorrow is a beautiful new day.

If you don't pass, tell yourself this: You will take the test again. It will be better the second time around, because you'll know what to expect. You got through it once, you can get through it again. And Passing this time around doesn't guarantee employment. I've had friends that passed the Bar last July and are still looking for jobs. Passing guarantees you are licensed, but nothing else. So don't be discouraged. Don't give up. Your time will come.

Here is a quote that has helped me put things in perspective, as a repeat taker, and is giving me strength today:
"History has demonstrated that the most notable winners usually encountered heartbreaking obstacles before they triumphed. They won because they refused to become discouraged by their defeats."
- B.C. Forbes


I just joined this thread, but I think we deserve to all be proud of ourselves for making it this far. Congrats to EVERYONE for getting through the July 2013 Bar Exam.

Good luck to you all.

Fuck. What of those who sured up a job before bar results, but are pretty sure they failed at this point? Holy less than 1.5 hours.

The information that you have entered does not match with a name on the pass list.

Are you sure you entered the numbers right? One of my friends last year reversed them.

Mine is telling me to call a phone number. Am I the only one getting this? I think there might be a problem with my score because my computer crashed and I had to get special permission to upload the test late.

Don't treat not passing as a reflection of your self-worth or your intelligence. This is a game. You'll fare better next time. I also think one should avoid forums like this before and during the exam.

I started on TLS back as an undergrad in 2008 when i started contemplating law school. I used TSL a ton in the application/LSAT process and to transfer to my graduating school. This will likely be my last post on TLS but I'm forever grateful for this community for helping me through the process and leading me to passing the CA BAR exam. Thank you TLS and Ken for all of your help!!!
