First: Yes, I checked to see if the exam had been uploaded, and no I didn't rely solely on the confirmatory emails. When I saw that the answer file for essays 4-6 had not been received, I went through the manual upload process (Thursday, about 6:30 p.m.) and uploaded the file. I then got the confirmatory email and I thought all was well. I took Friday off and didn't get back to my computer until after 6:00 p.m. That was when I saw the email from the State Bar informing me that the file had not actually been received.
I called Examsoft right away but they were closed for the day, and for the weekend. I called them first thing Monday morning and had the tech support guy log in to my computer remotely and upload the file. The problem, as he described it, was that Examsoft didn't write that file to the folder the program checks to see if there are any files to be uploaded.
It was only then that I discovered that I had actually uploaded the answer file for essays 4-6 from the February 2011 exam, not the July 2011 exam. The earlier exam files were still on my computer and, in my haste, I picked the first "essay 4-6" file that I saw. Then, when I got the confirmatory email, I failed to scrutinize it to see if it was correct because I saw only what I expected to see, that the file was received by them.
And, yes, again, I went through more steps, made more calls, and sent more emails than I am recounting here. I am omitting many tedious details of the story in an effort to save time, and because they're just useless trivia. Regardless, the correct file is now nestled securely on Examsoft's server and the nice lady from the State Bar said that my inadvertent error shouldn't prevent them from accepting it.
Second: The essays, sans released answers, are available on the State Bar website.
