Yeah, don't get me wrong, I have still been neurotically clicking "refresh" on the results page all day! I hope you are right, but I'm trying to keep my expectations in check. This is the worst.

Do we think today is the day?


I'd be very surprised if we get VA today. The VBBE has been pretty specific about October 31. Their website front page even says "October 31, 2013: Results for the July 2013 Bar Examination" under the "Upcoming Dates" section. You've gotta think that if they were going to release "as soon as the results are available," they wouldn't be so specific about the 31st.

For me, I am just hoping we get results early in the morning like these lucky (and/or unlucky) NY folks. I cannot survive waiting until the afternoon to find out if I'm a lawyer or not.


Last year they released the day before around 4 PM, and from what I've heard, they've done that for the past few exams. But then again, who would have thought that NY would release results before VA.

They better come out tomorrow. I'm not prepared to make it to Friday without my results.

I'm still constantly refreshing though. Job productivity is quite low right now.

NY getting their results last night upped my stress level considerably. I've accomplished very little today other than excessive coffee consumption and manic googling trying to find some clue or indicator as to when I can expect my results.

I'm a little amazed that someone hasn't compiled a list of what day and what time TX bar results have come out over the last couple years. I should be able to look something like that up on google in less than 5 minutes.

From what I can tell from my own manic googling, sometime between noon and 2 PM sounds about right.

This is what my co-workers have told me.

Why would they release it at such an awkward time? Right in the middle of the day so that you find out while you're at work. Screw you, Texas.

That's when I got Illinois, right in the middle of a meeting on my second day.

What makes it worse is that all the partners/associates are like "Knowing you, you'll be fine."

How stupid will I look/feel if I don't pass? I need to find something to distract myself.

Waiting on Texas. Many comments have indicated tomorrow. But when I check the license dates of many attorneys in Texas on the state bar site, it says either November 1st or 2nd. And then some random comment stated that "historically for over 20 years" it has been released on November 1st.

On top of that I have an interview in the morning, need to show that I am not distracted that results may come in a few hours.

This. It obviously didn't happen today but that's the first time in years I believe.

Best of luck to you bros waiting for Texas results. Hope you all get them today so you can have a 180 Halloween party tonight.

Being at work when results come out has the potential to be super awkward.

I am just gonna get up from my desk, push in my chair, and roll out if I fail because I am fired anyway. Why make it awkward?

Partners told me two things yesterday:

1. Either way my job is safe.
2. Either way I can leave the office early.

I am still looking for a job (which obviously sucks), but fortunately, I guess, I don't have to be around a lot of people if I fail. On the other hand, I have a call back next week for a job that will only be offered to me if I pass.
