Tomorrow. Some time between 10:30 pm and midnight.

Or maybe Oct 31. Again, we have no way of actually knowing until the email rolls in since they don't tell us.


Don't say things like that :shock:
I prefer to be in blissful denial of that being a possibility (which it totally is)

Oh I understand, I just don't want anyone following this thread to think tomorrow is definitely the day and then ti get freaked out if they hear nothing.

10.30pm NY time will be 1.30pm in Australia. I hope I passed. Signed up for the 9-month part time course Barbri offered to foreign Attorneys and got charged US$6,000 (included a component called introduction to US law to ease us in). I do not want to fly all the way from Australia to NY again to take this exam. Gave it my all. Practised +1500 MBE questions, wrote 40 essays and 7 MPTs. Never worked as hard as this in my life.

You guys seem to be very certain about tomorrow. Being in Europe, a midnight release would mean I have to stay up till 6am...



Or you could wake up at 6am :D

If you've been following this thread, we won't---at this point, I'm starting to think we are all a bunch of adrenaline junkboxes since it's been a constant build up and let down followed by another rush and another stomach drop for the last week....you're in good company... :P :shock: 8)

Geez. The results release is so close that if we go on a hunger strike now until the release, it can still be called intermittent fasting.

Co-worker called @9:03 AM. Woman stated they don’t have a date for the release yet, but it will be soon—although “definitely not today”.
Maybe someone else can call in PM.

Why do I feel like they are lying?..... I don't understand why they can't just say, "Results out Friday October 26, 2018." This whole nonsense of soon, but not soon, but maybe tomorrow, but actually next week just shows disorganization.... These are the people we want grading our tests and administrating of test sites? Yikes...

It's not like this test means much to anybody :|

Thanks!
That doesn't really change our outlook though - emails arriving in the late PM and public release tomorrow (which is what the y probably refer to as "release") can still happen.

If they would simply give us a date, no one would call. I bet no one is calling OH, DC or CA because they know exactly when results are coming out. It's just ridiculous. Waiting is tough enough as it is, but we're waiting in the dark.

This is my exact issue. Pick a date 100 days from the test. They have graded enough tests to know the time period required. It can obviously be done because other states have done it. Or at the least, say the week of October 22nd between 10/22 and 10/26.

I mean it's not like this is a major life changing test or anything. :|

The lines I'll use if I failed:
- Never had it in me anyways.
- Whatever, it's just a stupid exam.

The lines I'll use if I passed:
- YES. yes. YES.

Whaaaat?!! No way. :cry: last year release date was Monday October 23rd why can’t it be today Monday October 22nd? With less candidates?

I like this.

If I fail I'll go with
- the anxiety just got to me
- moving during the bar added a lot of pressure, maybe next time

If I pass
-- fuck yes, I'm a fucking genius :lol:

If I fail:
1. I had computer issues
2. I passed in (insert state with a 260 passing), which is fine by me since all I wanted was a license from any state
3. I wasn’t going take it anyway, but I figured why not.

Question - is it more likely than not that results will come out around 1030-midnight, whenever they come out?

I'm not sure calling again will get us anywhere. I doubt the people answering the phones at the BOLE even know the release date. I mean, it's clear that they go to pretty significant lengths to keep this process as secretive as possible. Plus, the date would definitely leak if they told all of the people answering their phones. I would guess very few people know until after the emails go out.

I would place little weight on what they say. I think it's probably still more likely than not that we find out tonight or tomorrow, especially in light of what Joe said.

Our Lord and Savior JoeSeperac earlier said "Lo, though ye may despair I say unto thee fret not! For through the wonders of paying attention and running sensible analysis I have a hunch it will be Monday after 5pm."

Many have interpreted these words, but none truly know the answer to your question except BOLE.

Last year I got my results at 10:53 PM. Whether or not that happens again, unknown.

I am not waiting on NY for results but a few friends took July 18. The home page (https://www.nybarexam.org/) info has changed:

It used to say

"(2) JULY 2018 BAR EXAMINATION

The New York Bar Examination was administered ….. Results are expected to be released in late October or early November."

Now it says "Results are expected to be released in late October."

That change happened today so nearly there....
