If the failure e-mail has a different subject line or text within the e-mail compared to the passing e-mail, please clarify. I fully expect to have failed again and don't want to open the PDF. If the subject line or e-mail text is different for failure e-mails, I'll know immediately lmao, thank you!

For failure e-mails? So there is basically no difference between passing and failing e-mails except for size of PDF? fml

Passed! 318 with 158 MBE.

Honestly would not have been surprised if I failed. That's how badly this test messes with your brain (Didn't help that I got 1's and 2's on all my Themis graded essays).

What is the title of the document if you failed?

Mine says, "Notice of Certification." Is that good? Too scared to open still...

Pretty sure you passed, congrats! I'm just hoping maybe the failure e-mails have different text than the passing ones but so far it looks like both pass and fail e-mails are identical in subject line and e-mail texts, only difference is PDF size.

I'm sorry to hear that, what was the body text of your e-mail? Don't give up! Sometimes it just takes a different strategy and I believe in you, best of luck!

passed!!!!!!!!!! 290. 148 MBE.

thank you Barbri. even though your $6000 price tag for foreign attorney is a rip off, i am thankful.

congrats all who passed.

for those who didn't - it's just a small setback which you will overcome - remember John F Kennedy, Hillary Clinton and Michelle Obama all failed on their first attempts (JFK failing the NY Bar twice).

peace out, all the way from Australia.

Hi! Total score 351 (scaled MBE 166.8). Is there a way to know what percentile does that represent? Thanks!

Congrats to everyone that passed :lol: Its been a hell of a ride.....
To everyone that didn't pass, its not over! Try to keep your head up and remember that you are not alone. Your time will come and when it does it will be 10X any feeling you've ever had!

I want to thank everyone for being super supportive during this time and giving me the giggles when I felt like crying. If the lawyer world is anything like this thread, I know I'll be in good hands!

Signing off......

I passed!!!

Still hyperventilating though. I think the stress and anxiety of waiting did permanent damage.

To those who were met with a bit of bad luck, my only advice is that you should use adaptibar or esqyr (a significantly more affordable version of adaptibar), assuming you didn't before. I found Barbri to be almost entirely useless, except for their outlines and larger practice exams.

If anyone needs Barbri books, feel free to message me. I'm too lazy to mail them out but would be willing to pass them off if you come pick them up in Crown Heights.
