The Best of Luck to Everyone Tomorrow!

May you all find a way to peacefully coexist with the exam over the next three days.  But if you can't find common ground with it, then kick it's butt!

Now go do that voodoo that you do so well!

When you took the bar that last time, did you feel different when you walked out the third day? Did you KNOW?

This was my 5th time taking the exam...this was the first time that I walked out early out of each and every one of the six sessions...was that a good sign or was I just saying screw it...any thoughts?

Did anyone try the Big Cat Outlines? I saw them referenced on this blog. I didn't feel so good about the exam this time around, am already planning for February and wondered if anyone had any advice on where to go for help? Thanks for any help you can give!

Just wanted to send out a very belated CONGRATS on passing the bar! I've been reading your blog for sometime now and have been cheering for you to slay this beast! So not that you have passed, do you find it odd to NOT have to prep for the next bar exam?

Thanks! Yes, My life has taken a turn for the better but it's been a long slow turn, like that of an oil tanker on the open sea. I know I'm in the middle of a dramatic change of direction, but it's happening so slowly that it's somewhat disorienting. I mean, if the bar exam had been every week, or even every month, then the discontinuation of it would have been dramatic. But because it's only a twice-a-year thing it's easy to lose track of.

And since it no longer exists in my conscious or subconscious mind - dreaded as a present and future torture - I've been blissfully unaware this past year as it slouched slowly, yet too quickly, toward all those anguished bar candidates.

Last year was my 3rd time taking the exam and I finally passed! It is rough though guys so best of luck to you!I am now a personal injury lawyer here in Waterloo so it definitely paid off. Just get through these exams without going crazy and keep the end goal in site.
