They just want to add to their reputation.

Reporting live from inside the committee on admissions: the lady keeps saying she's waiting on the webmaster. I asked her who this webmaster was and if she'd checked on why it hasn't been posted yet and she keeps saying she doesn't know, that even though this is our highest priority she doesn't know what's on his plate today so we just have to be patient.

Can you ask her for the physical copy? Take photos? Share it online?

YES. Why is there so much concern about where and how this thing is posted? Just post the thing ANYWHERE for god's sake.

I bet they'll think twice before stating an exact time in an email again :roll:

This is so damn cruel and frustating. If they knew it wqs posting today, why not be prepared already? They are a bunch of incompetent clowns. This is unacceptable!

Feel bad for you guys.

Absolutely ridiculous. The results are clearly and obviously done. I'd imagine whatever "print out" there is to post is done. What harm is there if they post a hard copy now and figure out the web stuff (which is a joke unto itself) later? There is no reason to do it like this.

Definitely agree it was an error to set a time, especially one so random "After 1" clearly means in common understanding "soon after 1pm" not the hyper technical "well 11:59pm is after 1pm!" Type of BS. They were better off just stating "results by close of day on October 26th" yes the whole day would be a shit show for you waiting, but they'd avoid this crazy and unnecessary frustration created by the 1pm stated time.

Good luck to all! I'll be there with many of you in January.

Good Luck, Ladies and Gentlemen. I did not make the "cut", but hopefully my score is at 260, since I accepted a job in Alabama. Wish you all the best.

PASSED THANK BABY JESUS! Congrats to all who passed and my condolences to those who did not. I'm sure you'll get it next time.

So, in NY, the list of the successful candidate is on the New York Law Journal, on the next day.

Is it same in DC?

Will any paper publish the list of successful candidates?

Hello everyone. This is my story about passing the bar exam.

I was concerned about not passing the bar exam, so I follow everyone's advice and bought Barbri. I bombed the simulated MBE horribly. (Think, way below 100 raw score). At that point, I almost gave up. I was depressed about that score and felt that I could never pass. I didn't give up, though. I practiced Barbri questions over and over; I still never made it past the 60% mark. I probably did a grand total of 500 questions over the summer (and that's counting the 200 I did for the simulated MBE). I never did Adaptibar or any other program out there to help you get a better score. I took the bar exam, expecting to fail.

I got my results today, and I passed. For anyone who may be reading this (and your state has yet to release scores), cling on to hope. I never expected to pass; my simulated score was terrible; and, I didn't even hear about all those other programs until there was maybe 3 to 4 days left before the bar exam. You can do it, too.

If you were not successful, try again. Don't feel bad. Life happens. Dust yourself off, and try again.

So the only swear-in date is December 4? Also, does anyone know if there is some required one-day ethics course that we need to take, and if so, if that would be offered on the 4th as well (or near that date)? Somebody told me DC does that but I couldn't track down any information or dates.

The Mandatory Course is offered once a month every month. You must take it within a year of getting sworn in, but you can practice law as soon as you are sworn in and issued a bar number.

More info on the Mandatory Course here:
