July 2017 NY Bar Exam Results

Postby L_William_W » Tue Aug 29, 2017 11:49 am

Did anyone get the results for NY? I got it and passed (on attempt #3- miracles happen). This is way sooner than I expected- usually the results come out in October.

As someone who took it a couple of times, how'd you feel about this MBE? Did you leave feeling like you definitely passed the MBE portion? If you don't mind sharing, at what level were you getting questions right on the practice exams (assuming you were taking them)?

Thanks and Congratulations!

I didn't get the actually score breakdown (at least not yet). I had mixed feelings about the exam. There were six essays- torts, wills, secured transactions, evidence/crim, con law, and civ pro. I felt very confident with the torts essay. I bullshitted my answer on the secured transactions essay. The other four essays were in between.

As far as the MBE, I found some sections easy (Torts, Con Law), moderately difficult (crim), hard but not impossible (property, contracts, evidence), and sadistically hard (civ pro). I always pwned torts. Conversely, civ pro was the bane of my existence. Crim and evidence were harder than expected. Property and contracts were easier than expected.

I used Strategies and Tactics, Finz, and the giant Kaplan book. I also signed up for a course in which MPTs are graded, since that was my weakest section (also get this book from Mary Campbell Gallagher).

no way this is real. TLS would be blowing up right now. At the very least I would be able to find reference of them releasing today on Google and I can't.

I think the OP has it wrong. I received an e-mail notification from the Third Department today indicating how to apply for bar admission in that department, but the letter from the Third Department gave no indication about New York State bar exam results.

Epic fail OP in thinking you got your results already. You should know better. Good luck in October/November when results are released, but this isn't a good sign.

All that's saying is that when the second department gets receipt of the notice of certification, contingent on you passing the bar exam, from BOLE, you can apply to practice law. But in the meantime ie) while you wait for your results, you can start your application now

I agree that it's poorly worded and can easily be misconstrued. But given that this isn't your first bar exam, I also agree that you should know better

I spoke to some of my friends from law school. They received the same message. I totally misread the email. I got all excited for nothing. I was literally about to head to a bar and get pissy drunk.

Don't sweat it. I had to read it a couple times before interpreting it correctly.

Could the mods delete this thread so I can retain the little bit of dignity that I have left?

I, too, received this notice. Did everyone receive? I took the bar in February and failed but did not receive this notice after taking the Feb exam. Therefore, I assumed (and am hoping) that I received the notice because I passed. Anyone on this three in the Second District not receive this notice??

Do not take this notice to mean that you passed the bar exam. Wait for the actual results.

What's more concerning to me about these "results" is that I got mine from the third department, but BOLE confirmed my switch to the first last week. :|

Also even though NY won't release results for a while, something you can look forward to is NCBE's press release of how we all did on the MBE. It doesn't really speak to your NY pass / fail status, but because our class was up to bat this time, I'm pretty curious to see the macro trend.

I got one and completed it this afternoon. There were some questions on there that I felt weren't very pertinent to the survey's stated purpose, which was a little weird

Also, from what I can tell by skimming through the 2016 NY Bar group, there's no connection between receiving the survey, or the timing of when you receive the survey, and your results, so I probably wouldn't read too much into it.
