Ok kids... who has suggestions for how to stay distracted while we wait for Friday? Not sure how I'm supposed to get any work done. So far my plan of repeatedly logging in to see if the bar examiners accidentally uploaded the results several days early is not working.

In another state, a classmate of mine found out she got in the 18th percentile on the MBE portion of her bar. She still passed. I keep reminding myself of that because while I think I did well on the PTs, the MBE was brutal for me.

Perhaps try using something that is still legal?

How do you know who's grading that Q? And, what did he/she do to piss off a bk trustee (they usually piss me off)?


I don't know about your district but the Central District, they are pure evil. I don't know if a BK or UD or Fam Law lawyer or DUI or lemon law lawyer is grading it. I saw some youtube on PTs with this older woman named Vivian something thinking oh shit--she was a grader once.


Damn I'm off my game. I thought you were speaking literally. Fuck it's gonna be a long week. Hell, I even spoke to someone and was talking like it was Thursday.

Statistically speaking, approximately 48% of us likely did ;)

I prefer to go by the ABA %. But you paint a more complete picture, I guess.

If you hit hit the refresh button on the exam results page while holding control+[your file number]+DOB, and then wait a few seconds and then your page will refresh and tell you how many days left until results!!!

Those are good. Since everyone says you're supposed to visualize yourself passing, I watched a few like that a couple days before the exam. Have to say though, it never occurred to me to post a reaction video but if I did, I would try to make it look like I wasn't surprised to pass.

Same. Just a casual shrug of the shoulder and a "Finally". [Turns off camera].

It was pretty non-dramatic when I passed. Just a thumb up to my boss, maybe a smile? Relieved and glad. Free pizza!

Then again law school stole all my emotions so interpret my lack of screams however you want

I imagine this is the approach Kobe [had] when he [used to] hit game winners. Ice in your veins. Envious

Solid find. Thought I found the July 2015 statistics until I saw a table for "special students" (seems inappropriate?) and realized I was looking at the wrong thing.

Can we get a second pair of computer eyes on that file?!?!? Can we dig further?

Saw that too. Stats for first year law student exam. What is that again? Any correlation to actual exam? We got time to kill...
