I literally can't believe that 95% sure we will all have our results in 10 hours. I'm buggin! Not me personally, this is my first crack at the bar but my buddy failed by 8 points. Idk anyone who failed by more than 20 points but there has to be several in existence. I hope we both passed feb, so that we can celebrate and watch the draft on Thursday/Friday.

Ugh, sad!! If I had to take the MPRE again I'd just cry. Like I forgot everything already...pretty sure I forgot everything bar related too...

Haha, I would cry too. That MPRE was difficult and the NYLE was just a procedural PITA.

2pm...9 hours to go. (Counting down until 11pm, since in my mind the answers are likely to be released after that. I could count down from like, 11:40 or 11:45 but whatever).

9 hours to go, 5 hours til I can leave work.

Right?

PA and NJ only required I get a B or higher in the course, which I did. You think NY will every be more reasonable? Probs not! haha

Now I'm wondering if my Aug. expiration is too soon...w/e, I'll cross that bridge when I get to it. Waiting on these results is stressful enough.

NYLE deff feels like "Ok Court you are going to take away our NY specific exam, then we present you this gem!" haha

But, I would still take it over the traditional NY bar with this extra hoop ANY DAY!

You should be good, because you are passing! (BTW obsessed with Pugs, so your picture makes this stress less painful! :) )

I'd re-check that- I know PA requires you to take b/c my friends all had to take. I think the passing score is a 75 for PA. NJ requires a C or better in an ethics course and you don't have to take the MPRE.

haha thanks :)

i love how we've all become 1 big family on here. All my non-law friends/fam are like "but it's just an exam?" like no you don't get it bye.


It's so annoying when people say that. Like, yes, it's just an exam, but it's the exam that allows me to actually get and keep a job and move on with my life?

Otherwise I'm stuck in this weird limbo where Macy's wouldn't even give me a job...seriously


I've legit considered applying at Sephora, they'll probably be like oh you have a JD? you're overqualified sorry.



So funny you say that bc I just got a pt job at planet fitness and was told I was clearly overqualified but still got the job...having a few gym membership has helped me deal with this stress like you wouldn't believe lol

A friend of mine who graduated in top 10% of law school failed her first bar by 22 points.
131 MBE and rest essays. No one could believe her essays grading could be that low. Luck really does matter...

I think that happens to more people than we think. The essay writing on the bar is not as pretty as some of the best law students wrote. I was a legal writing and research TA for 2 years and some of my best students didn't pass the first time around, citing essays.

It is SUCH a different beast than law school!

Yeah I applied only at B&N so that I could get a discount around the holidays and on the Starbucks stuff in the cafe. Even though I quit before having to work the holidays, they were like, in case you get poor while you're studying and want some more hours we'll keep you listed as an employee. I was thrilled because that meant I kept my discount through the holidays, which was awesome.

Haha same. It had been so long since I've done actual legal writing though, it felt slightly uncomfortable. I did fine on MPTs in my last bar, it was the MBE that mostly brought me down.

In 10 years we are going to look back to this day/time period in our lives and just laugh at all of the anxiety we went through. We will (hopefully) all be kick-ass attorneys by then
