Well, he just posted. Gotta hold onto our hearts for another few hours T-T. Why don't they just post it and get it over with.

No cause for alarm, but since the link is now several pages back:

Not to be a downer but results in almost every state are worse than normal.

I know. But, there was some cautious optimism for Texas given the unique setup of the exam and the way it is graded as compared to other states.

I'm not sure what this even means, but I do sincerely wish the best of luck to all of you.

The lots are cast; my advice is to find a 2-hour stupid movie to watch on netflix. If it's blocked at work, use your phone.

I'm not sure what it means either, and I wrote it! Haha. I'm just losing my mind. I'm expecting failure so I'd rather just get it over with at this point.

Yes, they post results and send you a letter on atlas. If you pass you just get a letter with your final score and your MBE score. If you do not, you get a letter with your score and an attachment that has your grade breakdown.

I had my breakdown when the results were posted. I was mad, then sad. It sucked because I was with someone that passed and she couldn't really enjoy her pass.

OOOOh that's AWESOME! My start date for studying is Monday and I won't have to wonder which to tackle first :-). I know I'll be sad for a minute but it's not news to me, this was truly a practice for the "real" one next year. OMG I've never seen a clock move so slow!!!

Yes. The way it works, if I remember correctly. You'll get an e-mail to whichever e-mail you registered with stating that something has been uploaded to your account. If you pass you just get your total score and MBE score. If you fail you get two emails, one will be in reference to your overall score and failing and the second will be your score breakdown. Here's what I can't remember: once scores are released the initial e-mails are also sent out (so you can search for your name on the list or wait for the e-mail), but I can't remember if you get your score breakdown right away as well. I do remember that it is the same day and maybe within a couple of minutes of each other.

So we could in theory wait to see if we get one or two emails?

If you get an email from the BLE, are you really going to wait to open it?

That's my theory and that's how I want to find out myself. Again though, I can't remember if they are sent together, at the same time, or at different times (and what that lapse of time is), but I am like 99% positive that you will get two e-mails if you fail. I say this because when I check my Atlas account I have two separate messages one titled: "July 2016 Bar Exam Results" and "July 2016 Grade Breakdown" meaning that I had to receive a notification for each message once it was uploaded to my account.
