Alright team, how's everyone doing? I'm starting to get that antsy, refresh-page mentality and trying to let it go and stay relaxed. So I thought I'd commiserate with y'all.
) says results will be released over the next three weeks, with a trend towards next week or the week after. Given the huge influx of takers and the UBE, though, who knows. July 2016's admin (large number of takers, first time UBE) released the latest in awhile -- about two weeks after they released the year before!

Good luck to those of us waiting (and to the DC Bar Committee for handling all of our craziness).
Hey, feeling the same thing here..
After I got that one sentence reply saying I gotta check their website everyday instead of knowing the release date, I just realized that the deadline for July is May 3. I thought it is possible for them to release the result even after the deadline, so emailed them asking whether those applicants who are waiting for the feb result could get some extension for July application, and are waived for the late-application fee.
Again there answer was devastating: We all have to submit and paid July application before the deadline and no late-fee will be waived. I emailed them again how absurd it would be for those possible retakers like me to apply for the next exam without knowing their result. I will let you know here if I get any reply on that.
Further, their new online application system is a mass. According to their instruction, it says: "... who have taken the D.C. bar exam within the past 25 months may file a copy of previously submitted Law School Certifications, transcript(s), or course descriptions with this application." So I assumed we dont really have to get all those docs again for the application. However, apparently, their new online application wont allow me to proceed unless I post the scan of docs all over again.
I emailed and asked about this, and they again told me to submit all those documents despite of the fact that I already submitted all those doc and took the feb bar. Now I have only a week to get those documents ready from school and so on. Maybe I should be glad that at least I dont have to do C&F thing again for this.
If you guys reached them or some info to share regarding those problems, please post it here so we get be in the same page. There were some of people PMed me, but as I told them, it would be better to continue the conversation here in the thread for other ppl's benefit.
Man, I dont know how DC bar people works. They are not even a big state to begin with, but they do much worse then them.
