For what its worth, I took the bar twice. The first time, I felt like a rockstar. The second time, I felt horrible and couldn't sleep each night of the exam.

Moral of the story - don't worry about how you felt because that really isn't an indicator of whether you passed. The real moral of the story, I took the bar twice and even though that period after I failed felt horrible and studying and taking it again was a special type of purgatory, it does not matter now. I am a lawyer now, no one cares that I took it twice, and even I have forgotten about the struggle I went through.

Ease up, today's wait is going to suck, try to do something to take your mind off of it. Like check out videos of the new Tesla Roadster. 1.9 seconds people. 1.9.

Saw that. That thing is stupid fast. In the price range though, and with that speed, I hope they're considering doing something with artificial exhaust noise. I don't want a silent 1.9 0-60, do something like that movie with Vince Vaughn and Kevin James where they were engineering and selling their exhaust technology.

I have a Model S, and trust me, the noise is not a problem. Instead of exhaust noise, you get this spaceship whizzing acceleration noise. In driver's seat, there is noise enough from speeding past everything outside.

But the noise thing is a bit of a personal preference thing too.

I was under the impression that Tesla was known for, and prided themselves, on creating very airtight and quiet cabins with noise-reduction technology to eliminate outside noise?

I also like the crackles and pops from downshifting something that has a lot of power and sport exhaust setup, which can occur even at low speeds.

The cabins are farily quiet, but you can still hear noise especially when accelerating.

Does anyone know or have an idea if the site will allow us to check results by smartphone?

Yes, you can check by smartphone. I did so in order to get a snapshot of the pass screen.

It's really a unique time. I have been through some fairly stressful times in my life and i'm not so sure any one of them was worse than waiting for results. Failing sucked, and taking it again (while the gf started her practice) doubly sucked. But, proving myself made it somewhat worth it. Nevertheless, even if you fail all is not lost. For those of you that pass, congrats. We're all rooting for all of you guys.

Anyone else starting drinking before they get their results? Bad idea to numb the possible pain?

Can anyone confirm if the leading 0s on your applicant number must be entered? The badges and tickets don't include them.
