For those wondering, my attachment size was 23 kb in one browser and 24 in another - no idea how that works

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.

To those who've passed, congratulations! Well done counselors! 8)

For those who didn't, feel free to message if you want to talk or vent. What matters now is what you do from here. Find out what you need to do, make a plan, and act on it. I speak from first-hand experience - you will get there.

Passed! What a journey. Congrats to everyone who passed, and to those who didn't - I know you will rock it in February. Not a doubt in my mind.

So utterly thankful that I passed, and a big congrats to all on here that passed, and to anyone who failed, you will nail it--and if anyone needs someone to study with for next round--I will help out with studying for it too!!

The good news is I’ve been improving my game every time and I’m within ten points of passing. To anyone else who, like me, didn’t pass this exam, keep your chin up, decompress, and in November or December, get back on the horse and keep at it.


I'm there with you! Missed by 6 points, but I am actually more energized than before. Best of luck.

Since we don't have to get most of the affidavit's notarized, can we just our affirmant's to email us the affidavits?

You only get that if you fail. I ordered my transcript from NCBE and it contained the same exact info that was in my letter from BOLE :x

does anyone know where in the application packet we should place our receipt after we pay the $375 fee and register as attorneys?

the instructions say to include this receipt with our application, but doesn't list which order to put it in relative to the application questionnaire and affidavits...

Congrats to all who passed.

And to those who didn't, you're attitudes are an inspiration. I've never seen such positivism and motivation. If I don't pass the CBX, I'll remember that there are some really strong, smart people who are ready to tackle it on the next try!

Where does it say you must include the receipt?

The rules vary from department to department and jurisdiction to jurisdiction. You got this far to have your whole packet delayed due to an erroneous answer on here. Call the court. Anyways, congrats to all who passed. I didn't think I would but I did.

Its down to $300.00. Please come give me money for these books. I really want to get them out of here, and I need money.


Does Barbri not give you back a deposit on those prep books like the other companies do? Or are you just trying to make a profit on them?

Does anyone know the correct way to indicate breaks of employment on the Law-Related Employment affidavits for the bar application?

I worked for an attorney during the summers/winter breaks throughout college and am not sure how I should tell my previous employer how to articulate this on the affidavit.

Barbri would return a $250 deposit if you sent your books back to them I think sometime in August but for me I kept them incase I had to retake. I got lucky someone on ebay wanted to buy them. Honestly didn't think I'd be able to sell mine but it seems to help if you offer express shipping.

Anyone studying for the 2019 February bar and need a study partner? I am looking for a study buddy to go to the library/study cafe together from November-January. I live in Manhattan. Please let me know!
