What will change once you get your results?
If you pass, whats next?
if you fail, whats next?

This is all after celebrating/ crying

For me, if I pass-> I'm looking into some transitions. or increase in salary. I have all my c&F ready, just need to send the certification once I pass
If I fail-> I'll probably shoot for July. Start looking for a place to stay and register for July exam.... and quietly stay where I am...thanking God that I am not in a position to be fired.



I'm foreign educated and a retaker

If I pass: career change - currently work in investment banking in Europe but want to move back into law and secure a position in New York (if the pay is right that is!)

If I fail (again): will retake in July


Same situation as you. Retaker from Europe, working in consulting. Have you worked how to deal with immigration? Because - as far as I know - employers are very reluctant to even assess foreign applicants without a green card.


To be honest I haven't really looked into yet as my plan is to transfer with work and stay in investment banking in NY until such time a position comes up in group legal or if something pops up sooner then great. Don't have a plan b at this stage but would be interested to know visa options

Usually it takes 60+ days. This Thursday is 58 so I think it is a bit unlikely. I have a hunch that it is going to be this Friday but again the logical assumption is next week.

I think the only viable option (other than the 1mil investment) is the intragroup transfer visa (L1). H1B is dead (practically)

OK you sound serious about it so I won't completely dismiss the possibility of Thursday being the day. Let's hope for the best (and may it come the soonest)

I kept very quiet about my retake this time with my friends. Only my co worker knows, is updated or is waiting with me.
I don't know if I'll be doing anything to celebrate, i just know I'll be able to plan things ahead once I pass...sigh

I've told everyone that results come out in early May so that I have some time to absorb it, if it's bad news. I keep going over and over the essays in my mind and realizing that my structure completely fell apart. This is worse (for me) than the period just before the exam itself.

Hey!

Your MBE scores drastically improving is definitely a good sign. Its almost impossible to pass the bar exam without a good MBE score, and an above average score on the MBE will come in handy if you dont think you did too well on the essays.

Given that you practiced a lot of essays and MPTs, as long as you identified majority of the issues and addressed them, you should be fine on your essays and MPT. I hope you sticked to the CIRAC/ IRAC format. I am not sure why your barbri graders gave you a poor grade. Perhaps because you weren't sticking to the CIRAC on those questions? You could always reach out to Barbri and ask them for more comments or help. Anywho, You did your best and give it your all. I believe you should have a strong chance of passing!

All the best :)



happyhour1122 wrote:I started waiting for the results so here it goes. :P
I"m a retaker going through nightmares and panic attacks throughout the day. If I fail this time, I really wouldn't know how to improve.

I failed my first bar (no where close to the passing score) with MBE score of 133. I knew I had to improve my essays, but I believed it would be easier to improve my MBE, so I switched from Barbri to using Emanuel (All versions) + NCBE released exams and still solved all the questions on the Barbri workbook. My friend later gave me his Kaplan work book so I only selected short questions to work on.

My Barbri simulated raw score was 138, although I took the same exam June 2016. My last year score was 98. I don't know if this says anything.
I solved at least 2 MPT per week under timed condition, but Barbri grader often gave me a shitty grade and not much comments.
I outlined answer for MEE and compared my answers to the past model answers. I don't know how much I improved. Again, my scores were horrible with Barbri, and I really didn't know how well I was doing. Wish I had a private tutor, but didn't have enough money.

Here I am waiting for the results. I've always been a hard worker but didn't know how to study "smart". We shall see how I did this time. :| :|

I didn't feel horrible about the exam. But, I didn't feel horrible in my first exam either. There were times where I did my practice exams and felt good about it but ended up doing bad. At the same time, there were times where I thought the exam was ridiculously difficult, but the score wasn't that bad. I really do think its pure luck, and just like everyone else, I need some "good luck" in me.

Just received another email from BOLE (another heart attack). Time for those character and fitness..

This wait is brutal guys. I am routing on April 26th as the D-day. I wish you all the best of luck. I think this exam is a good combination of commitment, hardwork and a truck load of luck. Stay positive guys, believe in yourselves! the best is yet to come. 8)

I'm feeling so depressed about this these bar results. If I fail I think I'm not going to be okay mentally. Does anyone else feel this way? I'm so tired of a test determining my life. I can't even plan a vacation this summer yet bc of this even though I feel like I'm going to burn out without one. I just want to cry

Results typically aren't released until after you've hit full on despair, and become convinced that they'll never come out. Seeing as how some of you think they'll be out on Thursday, you still have another week or so to go.

I'm a practicing attorney in California (since 2012), and decided to take the NY bar exam to add more portability to my license (and because I have family in NY). I remember how nervous I was to get my first bar results, and the wait was SO long (much longer than this wait!) I feel I put in so much time preparing for this test while working full time, that I almost went crazy. I really hope I don't have to take it again.

For some reason, this exam felt much more difficult than my experience with the Cal bar, but maybe because I've been out of law school for some time. The essay topics also seemed to contain issues not commonly tested. Maybe it would've made more sense to take the July bar.

Good luck to everyone! Nice to know I'm not alone.

Now I wish it is next week since I need to somewhere this weekend and don't want to be depressed if I don't pass....
But this feeling.....its this thursday. The past record indicates that bar results are rarely released on Fridays. It was mostly Tuesday or Thursday.
Either way, I'm going to be extra nervous tomorrow evening. If not, I'll be happy friday, sat, sun and then back to my anxiety attack on Monday.
