Re: July 2017 Texas Bar Exam

Anybody know whether anyone who took the February 2017 exam (regardless of whether they passed or failed) received a survey email?

Good job, you just sent a bunch of already frazzled lurkers into an unnecessary tailspin.

I took and passed the February 2017 exam. No survey email. Husband took and passed as well, no email. I highly suspect the survey is a new thing (nobody got one with the July 2016 exam, pass or fail) and was almost certainly sent to everyone.

Wasn't my intent bitter Betty. I really don't think it means a damn thing quite frankly but I have the right to speak on my experience. Don't come for me unless I send for you...okay?

I received the email. It made me paranoid as though the BLE is tallying the final results, and my study habits will somehow be taken into account in determining a pass/fail for a possible border line grade. Ugh! Paranoia may destroy ya!

I didn't mean to sound bitter. I did mean to point out that you injected more stress into a thread that's already filled with nervous wrecks. It can be easy to post your own experience without thinking about the way others will take it. I thought you may have misjudged what you were doing. But if I was wrong and you were just trying to be unkind, then you succeeded.

Definitely not. It could easily be a sample size thing. Either way I’m sure they are not connected.


90% sure they are not connected. This happens s every test administration. Some people get emails, some don't and there's no correlation. Last time around me and a friend did not get an email and he passed and I didn't.

LOL! I’m afraid to fill out the survey for this reason. But then I think “oh, what if they’ll automatically fail me if I don’t fill it out?” It’s hilarious on one level, but I feel completely pathetic on another.

As I stated initially I don't think it is an indication of anything just speaking in my experience which is no different from what everyone else is doing in this thread. I would never intentionally want to cause distress with anyone. You took my post and are trying to make it a way bigger issue than it is really. Chill out is what I'm saying. You can see other people didn't have my experience at all. That is why we are here to a sit results and share experiences.

I wish you the best of luck and success :D

EDIT: Of a note is that Texas Bar website has a registration form for new lawyers (that is, those who presumably passed the Bar Exam). They say that the registration is available 2-3 days after the results are released but I suspect that TBLE send the pass lists to Texas Bar a few days earlier. Worth a try.


Where did you find this form?


Texas Bar Website -> Membership -> New Lawyers Oath & Fees-> Click Here to Register. It’ll ask for the last for digits of your SSN and your DOB.

Yeah, I did that registration thing, but it didn't work. Honestly, I think they are smarter than that. At the end of the day, it's likely we'll just have to wait the good ole fashion way to find out. Best of luck all!

I've been around this block a few too many times to know that there's absolutely no "indications" whatsoever about whether you passed/failed before the results actually come out. No surveys, no emails about C&F, no attorney registrations, nothing. Trust me. The only way people have found out sooner (a few hours earlier than the posting on the ble website) has been when they know friends/colleagues who work at the S.Ct. of Tx. And then there's Justice Willet - whose texts were notoriously off the mark last time - not his fault, of course, it was the ble trying out the whole Atlas thing and something went horribly wrong. If BVest is the be believed, Willet, J. is taking a hiatus (and BVest is rarely ever wrong).
So calm yourselves (as much as you can, b/c I know it can seem impossible). You already either passed or failed the minute the proctor said, "STOP!" for the last time. You will know when you will know. This is nothing but a hurdle we all need to overcome. It counts for absolutely nothing on how good a lawyer you can become. All the shitty lawyers you know, they all passed the bar. Try not to make it seem like the end all be all of your career. This is just the beginning.

First time I took the bar exam people were freaking out, because we all received an e-mail. Some of us received one and some of received two. Had no bearing on it. Second time I took the exam people were freaking out, because some of us received an e-mail and some did not. Both me and my friend did not receive an e-mail, he passed I did not. I swear this happen every test administration and no one remembers from the past time and it always causes a freak out. Results are either done at this point and they're going over borderline people or they're about to be finalized. Either way, you won't find out until they come out and there are no tips or tricks you can use to find out (unless you know somebody).

Edit: I had to add this edit. My ex-boss actually received an e-mail from the BLE like a week or two before results were supposed to come out. That didn't stop me from failing.

I started to play with the numbers and looked at my previous numbers to see how much I need to improve in order to pass. Hahaha. I was completely fine up until this week.

I know what you mean. My worst essay is definitely going to be the trust essay (I was not expecting that and I completely BS'ed it), followed by the commercial paper (I knew what to say, but I forgot some of the rule statements), and then the RP (I knew half of the answers regarding the RP, but I missed the O&G part, while the other RP I knew the answers but I had no idea about the rule statements). I'm unsure about my Wills and Administration, although I feel like I did fine and the Family Law are also a toss-up. I feel like I nailed the BA essays and the secured transactions. I did okay on the consumer law, I knew the answer, but my format was so off.

The other thing I keep going over is that I keep saying I knew the answers, but I haven't gone back to look at the essays, I hope my confidence in my answers isn't wrong. Hahaha.
