Illinois Bar Exam February 2015

Did anybody else receive an email from the IL Board, asking you to update your contact information by April 1? I got an email on Tuesday afternoon. I'm thinking results will be released on the 1st of April.

I got this email too and almost fell out of my chair when I saw who it was from. Honestly, i'd be surprised if they have the results out as early as April 1.

The results come out april 1. They have the past 3 years. They will come out on the 1st this year. Just like July results always come out October 1.

I sincerely hope you're correct, but the il bar's Twitter feed doesn't suggest they've come out April 1 for a couple years. Fingers crossed!

I'm with LawgirlIL on this one, barring some unforeseen circumstance, I think Illinois releases on the 1st, which is like 12 days away. I know I'm not going to be able to sleep on Mar. 31st... In any event, I'm particularly curious to see what the statistics will be in light of the new Civ Pro section to the MBE... Hopefully there is a surprisingly generous curve for us all... But who knows...

I'm going to be moving on April 1... Do they send an email to notify that results have been posted to the account? God I hated this exam. I cant imagine taking it again.

Yes. Most ppl will probably be logged in already, refreshing their account page every .5 seconds.

Hah. Torn between whether I'm happy to have something to take my mind off of it or whether I'm just going to be way too anxious for the duration of the move.

You mean like attending law school, taking this stupid exam multiple times, not reviewing contracts the night before MBE?

I am looking at the IBAB twitter account where last year they stated it was a couple days after April 1. "Be advised that the results for the February 2014 will not post today, but within the next couple days." This post was from April 1, 2014.

I am not sure where others are getting they come out April 1 every year. Because I don't see any evidence of that. Although it is certainly possible they do come out April 1.

Clearly, that is not what it says on the IBAB twitter account... Here is the link https://twitter.com/il_bar/status/318812132609253376.... "Be advised that the results for the Feb 2013 will not post today, but within the next couple days. Give your F5 key a rest for today." My understanding is that was because NCBE was delayed in forwarding MBE scores...

In any event, the pattern has been to release on the 1st of April or October... The July 2013 results were released on October 1st... The February 2014 results were released on April 1st.... And the July 2014 results were released on October 1st... I think we have every reason to expect that the February 2015 results will be released on April 1st (tomorrow)...

Has anyone actually called the Illinois Board of Bar Admissions to see if they will say anything about the April 1 date?

If you call, the only thing that they are allowed to say is that "results will be released within the first 2 weeks of April".... They always say that even though they typically release results on the 1st. If you want to remain skeptical about results being released tomorrow, then be skeptical. Wait as long as you like before checking your results (I can understand the hesitation) no matter when they release them.

What I know for certain is that I am not going to be able to sleep a wink tonight, and I'll probably be glued to my account page from midnight on until the Board puts me out of my misery.

Try to get some sleep. Results aren't usually posted in your account until after 10 a.m. I didn't pass IL July 2014. I received an email at 10:16 a.m. saying I have a new message in my account.

I was in a meeting at work that morning so I wasn't able to keep refreshing my account, but it's my understanding from classmates that results weren't posted for very long before the email went out.

Good luck to everyone tomorrow!

I will try, FeeltheIllinoise. :) For anyone who is interested, the IL Supreme Court's website was just updated with dates and locations for the new bar admission ceremonies (which will be in May). http://www.state.il.us/court/SupremeCourt/Ceremonies/default.asp I have been using google chrome's page monitor plugin to watch the admissions ceremony page. They updated it a few minutes ago. I'm positive results will be released tomorrow.

Good luck to everyone, and I am sure we all passed!

I just received an email from my IL bar contact that my application was submitted for in-house review, and returned to her by the reviewer with instruction to wait until i provide updated contacts to verify my employment! Really?! They are asking for these details the day before results are (possibly) released? What are the chances I didn't pass and they still ask for employment verification. It just would not make sense. I want to take this as a good sign but I sure don't want to get my hopes up. Man, this will be the longest twenty some odd hours of my life.

I am in the exact same boat. I doubt the processors have any clue though. They're just doing their jobs.

I also received an "urgent" request from my processor with a question about my Character & Fitness application.

I failed the July 2014 exam, and they did not send such an email last time...

Random…..but when you guys log into the IL BOA website, does it have the "Start New Application" field active on your welcome page?
