For the J16 exam, results were posted on the same night that the NCBE released the MEE questions on its website. Not sure if this means that the results will be posted tonight, but thought that some of you would be interested in this information.

That worked for me until about the beginning of October when my brain decided to play devil's advocate and go "well that's true but think of it this way. Say it is a test of minimal competence and you don't pass, that's how incompetent you are."

And now I am just floating in my own tears like Alice in her bottle.

More like, all of us are very interested in this information.

But idk why there would be any link between NCBE and BOLE -- there are plenty of states who announced and who haven't announced. Not sure they would care to coordinate with New York specifically.

I think my mental breakdown will include that line: I'm not minimally competent.

Interesting. Called them today for something unrelated and of course asked if there was an exact day yet. They said no--but to check e-mail closely this week. She stated that results could come out today--but also anytime this week. I guess takeaway, there is a potential that results could come out today.

Same! Based on data from the past nine years, they released scores on either a Tuesday (1) or Wednesday (3) for odd years.

Until someone proves to me otherwise, I am convinced you have to sell your soul at the crossroads in order to work for the Board of Law Examiners.

But is this data granular w/r/t time? Like could Tuesday mean 12:15 a.m. on Tuesday?

Applicants in prior years reported getting the emails at different times for the same test, like some just before midnight and some just after.

Right. I guess I am trying to think through a data point that says "scores came out on Tuesday": does that mean Monday night breaking into Tuesday or Tuesday night breaking into Wednesday?

I see what you mean, I figured that they meant that results were posted publicly on those days -- which I think tends to happen within a day or so of applicants getting the private email notification.

wonder why they choose to release the results around midnight. To rob us of our sleep, perhaps.

Yep it's the former. Just looked at the previous TLS thread and July 2015 results came out around 12:15AM on a Tuesday.

This is accurate


I. Feel. Pain.


Could be worse! At least model answers aren't there?

In seriousness though, I reread the questions and don't actually remember much law. I can't believe in a week I might (most likely) have to start learning everything all over again.



I did CC analysis instead of DCC for Con Law question and barely discussed trusts on the W/T question. how badly am I fucked? i'm actually flipping shit right now. what is wrong with me.


Didn't discuss trust at all.... lol?!
