Congratulations! Weren't you legit worried that you didn't pass? I hope that your story will be similar to that of others who are still waiting.

Yup, I was legitimately concerned about it, I was not a good studier. Hopefully if I passed, the rest of you will be just fine!

Thanks, everyone!!! Such a relief. :mrgreen:

Congrats everyone! Does anyone know if IL passers will actually find out their score? I'm curious about my MBE score because I may have to move to another jurisdiction eventually. Thanks!

No. But you can pay 25 bucks each to see if you got a 145 for MN, or 135 for DC.

If it helps anyone still waiting, I spent 15 minutes on an essay, which I totally bombed. And when I say "bombed," I mean that I didn't use any of the key facts, including the facts pertaining to the injury of the plaintiff! I misstated the rule of law and included issues that were not even implicated in the fact pattern. I might as well have left it blank.

So for anyone stressing about a particular essay question, you can make up any points you think you may have lost with solid performances on the other essays. I don't know my MBE score, but I was a slow test taker and I didn't get to two questions on the AM session.

Good luck, all!

I didn't even use the term water rights in a water rights question, and I passed.

I passed too. All the way at the end of the alphabet. Didn't find out until I had already "liked" about 20 friends' statuses.

That was the cruelest thing I've had to endure...

No. But you can pay 25 bucks each to see if you got a 145 for MN, or 135 for DC.


Or 150 for what North Dakota? iirc I think it is 134 for DC? Nothing like setting the bar low. lol


MASSIVE CONGRATS to all our our Illinois bar takers! :)

Can you do ND too? ILs form doesn't give me that option. Only DC and Minn. I'm already doing DC, so I'm going to pay the extra 25 to see if I got a 145.

Yeah, North Dakota is the third jurisdiction that'll let you in if you just score a certain amount on your MBE. A google search confirms, 150 is the score.

If you waive into DC, you have to attend a CLE class in person within so many months.

I thought about waiving into DC, but why pay the extra expense? I have a great gig in Iowa and I can practice in the US Tax Court in any state I want without being admitted to the bar there.

Just gotta decide if you really need a DC license or not. If you are still job hunting, just list on the resume "meets requirements" to waive into DC.
