It means absolutely nothing. The ONLY thing you need to keep an eye on is Justice Willet's twitter account. He'll give you about a 5 minute heads up. The result will come out tomorrow. Try to rest.



Agreed. If you look back at previous similar forums they all experienced similar things and had similar thoughts. But the results were released as anticipated- a day prior to the release date roughly between Noon-2PM. Trust Willet.

And from personal experience, it's more fun not to do the CRTL + F. Scroll down to see your name.

No way I'm CTRL+F'ing it. That sounds like Russian Roulette.

If form holds, then now we're in the splash zone. Last year The Fierce and Mighty Willett spoketh upon his followers the impending results at 11:18 AM - 5 Nov 2014

LOL!!!! This is good stuff! However, everyone just RELAX! I know its difficult. I feel anxious, afraid, scared, etc. But, there isn't anything we can do at this point.

I agree. While MBE averages are down, don't forget that the MBE is only 40% on the TBE (thank God). Seriously hoping my essays and procedure/evidence made up for that disaster.

Last July was 71.39%. With this year's MBE scores down and Texas scaling to the MBE results, I can't imagine we don't see more than a 1.4% drop.

I can't afford to be anywhere within or near that drop.

Not that any of us care right now but does anyone know of approx. when selected answers are posted? I see they've already made a column for July '15.

I bet the person who got the highest score on the exam knows by now that he or she passed: "It was the day before the bar results officially came out, May 2, and I was looking online to see if I had passed when I got a phone call from Scott Brister, who is a justice on the Texas Supreme Court. He said, 'I've got good news and bad news. The good news is you got the highest score on the February bar exam. The bad news is you have to give a very short speech.'"

Tomorrow feels like it will never be here... I feel like a little kid on Christmas in a somewhat dark way...

I just hope that studying for 10+ hours and completing 100% of barbri is enough to pass!

Have y'all ever heard of anyone failing who studied nonstop? I always hear the opposite but just have to ask

I have the opposite question lol. Success stories of those who studied but life circumstances got in the way or they otherwise had to cram and still passed.

Yes. Because you aren't meant to study nonstop. You are supposed to take breaks and relax. Usually the people who study nonstop are frantic and freak out on the exam. They may agonize over MBE questions and not finish or spend too much time on one essay... who knows.

You can probably expect a call from Justice Willett letting you know you're the highest scorer any minute now.

Yes true! I just meant on average. I took plenty of breaks and relaxed. Only studied 4 hours on Saturday and Sunday up until July.
Who knows just hoping hard work pays off
