I gave it my all this time and lost loved ones in my life, I have big interview tomorrow within entertainment industry and I'd be too heartbroken or devastated to even go when I find out I failed a third time.

Unless... someone can confirm passing emails go out first? has anyone received failure notice yet? .... :(


I did. 72kb PDF


im so sorry, I'm sure I failed too, just can't look yet

Good luck with tomorrow interview!


Thank you! You wouldn't open the e-mail if you were me right? go to the interview first..

I would open it because I am a very curious person in nature. But if you think not knowing will help your interview attitude, then open it after the interview. It is a very personal choice.

I don't know what they meant when they said my total score was 266. Does that mean I justttt made it??? jeez!!

Congratulations to all those who made it. For those who didn't, believe in yourself and commit to the exam for July. As a repeater, I really believe that if you commit to this exam and put in the time and effort, the exam id doable!!

I pushed my employers hard.
I gave them 2 weeks deadline.
also, law firms usually have someone authorized to notarize.



I will try that! Thanks!

What does the subject line or font look like on the passing e-mail? That's all I saw, I'll read it after tomorrow's interview.

not sure this helps, but mine said (in all caps): pro bono scholar pass not certified notice

I think the key phrase is "pass not certified."

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!! Please take the time to enjoy this moment for the entire week (hell celebrate the entire summer) because you all deserve it.

I've been monitoring this post the past few days and I have to say every emotion expressed in this post was exactly how I felt before the results came out. All of you are hilarious and I love how everyone was keeping each other (relatively) sane!

For those that didn't pass, please don't lose out hope! I was a retaker and passed NY in July 2016 (2nd time). My total score was 267. As you can tell by my score, I barely passed but all that matters is that I passed. I know some of you are reading this and think these are empty words but trust me when I say that anyone who can get through 3 years of law school can pass the bar exam. Sometime all it takes is approaching your bar prep in a different manner. For me, I decided to take Pieper (did Barbri the 1st time) because some acquaintances I knew who did not do well in law school (in the bottom 10%) took Pieper and passed the NY bar exam their 1st or 2nd time. I could go on with how great Pieper is (PM me if you want to know more) but I want to reiterate that the bar exam is not an insurmountable obstacle. You can and will pass the next bar exam!!!

Again, CONGRATULATIONS to all the passers!!!!

Apologies if it sounded like I was shilling for Pieper. I am not a Pieper rep but someone who is very grateful!

You will CERTAINLY pass in July. 4 points is so close that you're essentially there. I know it.

If Barbri doesn't have one of those free retake policies, then I recommend Kaplan. I used them for MPRE and this bar exam. The majority of the material is really really good. I felt very prepared for the MBE portion, and fairly prepared for the MEE.

Try Emmanuel MBE book and critical pass. I used those while working full time. I feel they really helped. My MBE score was a 157, much higher than when I took it in California on barbri alone.

If they're all the same, I'll wait until after tomorrow's interview but if they are different, please share one of my fellow soldiers who didn't make it. Thank you (3rd timer here, lost everything for this round)

Congratulations to those who passed! For those who didn't. July 2017 we're coming for ya and your stupid 25 experimental questions!


Sounds like we were in the same boat. See you in July as well!
