The office indicated that they might have a better projected timeframe by the middle of next week, and recommended calling back next week for a better update. They also recommended that we apply for the July exam even if we haven't received results yet.


w-t-f. So the deadline to register for July will pass before they post our results? WHAT is going on.

I'm honestly not sure. He was really nice but couldn't give me more info beyond a projected timeframe of the end of May and to apply regardless of whether we know the results. He indicated that the fee would be waived as the website states.

The late fee may be waived, but will they refund your money if it turns out that you passed? This is horrible news! I doubt barbri will let us re-enroll for free without us having our results. The results also impact whether I take summer courses as part of an LLM program.

Can someone let Above the Law know? They helped solve a previous DC problem when they had an extremely late swearing in ceremony.

This is completely absurd. The latest other jurisdictions are released, I believe, is May 18/19. To advise people to register for the July 2017 exam - thereby losing at least the registration fee - is not okay. If anyone else calls the court, please post here for sure.

Not to make everyone flip their sh*t (famous last words), but I heard from a good source (though still technically hearsay) that there was a problem with the grading of our exams and so our results may be significantly delayed. Has anyone else heard something like this? Really just trying to gather info here and not meaning to upset anyone or spread a rumor. :| :?


So... was it true after all? :cry:

Can someone else who calls please update us as to their discussion with the Admissions Committee? Let's make sure this isn't a cruel joke.

Any idea as to how delays in grading can impact pass rates ? Like.. maybe they're trying to do it quickly and they grade easier? **shamelessly desperate for any hope**

I also called the DC Bar for advice and they said they're completely separate from the Admissions process and couldn't recommend an avenue for redress.

What about the CFPB? This seems like a consumer issue to me.

If they need help grading the exams, I'd gladly volunteer my services.

Did they find out one grader was randomly assigning scores without reading? Just like Boston rogue chemist?

I just called. The lady was pretty rude.
I asked for an update on when the grades will be out. She said to call back next Friday and hung up.
This is garbage.
