Bar exam results are forthcoming. And, I'm reminded of this entry from the Archives.
*Cue holiday music. It's the most horrible time of the yearrrrr!!
If you took the Illinois (or any state) bar exam in July, your results may be forthcoming very soon. Of course, as any test taker knows, the results can't come soon enough.
Before you crack from the stress of the wait, and I know what it's like (Been there. New York Bar Exam. New Jersey Bar Exam. 2002. And all I got with this crappy t-shirt), here is how to cope with the wait for bar exam results.
7 things you absolutely MUST do in the 24 hours leading up to R-Day (Results Day) ...
Yes, it's always about this time of year when I look back and say a prayer of thanks~
1/ That I passed the first time
2/ So did my friends
3/ And then we partied like it's 1999. Good times.
p.s. In the highly unlikely event that you don't pass (think about it, it's a small percentage that actually fail. Ultimately, the powers that be want you to pass so that they can charge you for annual registration fees, mandatory CLE, etc.), remember the following:
- Determination, patience and courage are the only things needed to improve any situation. (author unknown)
- Every adversity, every failure, every heartache carries with it the seed of an equal or greater benefit. (Napoleon Hill)
- When life gives you lemons, cut them into wedges and put them in your cocktail. (Jennifer Fernicola Ronay)
- This too shall pass. (author unknown)
