It is Finished

I finished the bar exam today. Yesterday, the first day, was the essay portion. 5 essays over 4 hours in the morning and the same thing in the afternoon. Overall I think it went pretty well. There were a few essays I thought I couldn't have answered better and the rest I thought were at least good.

Today was the part I was most scared of. The MBE (multistate bar exam). 200 multiple choice questions covering Constitutional Law, Torts, Criminal Law, Evidence, Contracts, and Property. After doing about 600 practice questions and getting tons of them wrong I was not looking forward to the real thing, but I was pleasantly surprised that they weren't as bad as I thought they'd be. There were a good 3 or 4 that I know I got right. So now it's just a waiting game. The results generally take 8 weeks to come back.

Yesterday when I got home Robyn had left me one of those candy bar cards on the bed before she left for Girl's camp. It was a very nice gesture.

8 weeks for results...ahh..I'm not that patient. Hopefully those 3 or 4 you know you got right will be sufficient :)! I'm glad it's over for you!
