Indiana results just posted to our BLE accounts. As a second time taker, I was very thankful to pass.

Best of luck everyone.

Expedia too. Tickets wasn't the main issue this time but accommodation... A decent place to stay costed me a fortune! :cry:


Yep, a decent hotel is easily 200 plus a night. Did you find a cheap testing site? Usually the rural testing sites have cheap hotels.


Yes a motel a couple of miles outside Albany as all hotels in the centre were fully booked when I looked.

I did rent a car to drive upstate from JFK, which proved to be really handy for the exam too.



please please no retake no retake no retake


Indeed

Results in for New Mexico, Florida, Illinois, Iowa.

New York, Minnesota and other states too close to call.

happyhour - Then I will apply again for the next annual lottery and keep working in Europe.
I will still try to apply for US jobs, but the applicable H1B1 visa makes it virtually impossible without support from a future employer (and its a big burden for the employer, not just financially!).


You are in Euro? You took an international flight to take the bar exam? :shock:


Wow H1B sounds like a burden.
I saw a lot of people in the exam site that flew international to take the bar exam.
Imagine having to come back for the interview and the swearing in ceremony... @.@


Most states don't have interview. But it will be such a pain to adjust the time difference for the exam. I would arrive at least two days earlier prior to the exam.


I'm based in Europe too. Already crossed the pond 3 times the past 9 months (twice for the UBE and one for the MPRE) and if I pass I will have to come back a fourth time for the interview.[/quote]

PersistentAttorney - seems to be a NY requirement with the interview attendance in the US? For CA admission I just have to go to the US embassy!

Every state is a little different, some states even allow a public notary to take your Attorney oath.

Jesus, how much you spend on air tickets? :shock:



I hope you don't fly United for your interview.....because they could drag you out.. its possible you know...you don't want to miss your interview.


Nope only European airlines :D


BA, Norwegian, Al Italia and Deutsche Lufthansa are the main European airlines with US flights, aren't they;-)

Lufthansa to Euro, Cathy, EVA or ANA to Asia. Never UA or AA.


BA has better deals & locations for Euro - US!

Never flown in one of those. Comfy? Last time I flew with Lufthansa it was a smaller airbus and seating was a bit uncomfortable.

Oh I had no idea! Will check it out. Although one would want to fully experience his/her admission, no?

If you compare the February 2017 applicant list with the passing list, 20/62 people passed Maine's exam (32.2%). I don't know how many people were no-shows, but that's really low for Maine. Compare to last year's 60%.

Maybe I'm missing something - I only compared the list of applicants with the number of numbers on the passing list.
