Countdown to the NY Bar IV: See ya in August

Alright yall, there are just 9 days (216 hours) until the New York State Bar Exam. I’m sick inside. I have stuff I want to write here but can’t commit the brain power. So I’ll get back with you after the exam. In the meantime, I want to share this post I read earlier from a fellow bar-taker’s blog, Thanks, But No Thanks, that manages to sum up many of my thoughts right now. An excerpt:

Please Stop Telling Me I’m Going to Pass the Bar: When I say to you, “I am going to fail the bar,” I don’t mean it the way a nerdy college sophomore proclaims “omg! I am totally going to fail this chem exam.” I don’t mean that I might get a C, or I might not be the smartest kid in the room. I mean that, come November, I. Might. Fail. The. Bar. In fact, there’s a 50% likelihood that I will. When I tell you that I think I am going to fail, I’m not saying it because I need affirmation that I won’t. I’m not kidding. I’m not over-reacting. When I say that, I’m trying to warn you of what might come. Read more

    Omg, that is EXACTLY how i feel (except in the moments when I think I’ll be ok). Aargh. I really shouldn’t be on blogs at 2am when I have a shit-ton of NY practice and Evidence and Wills to review (nevermind that Trusts lecture that I still haven’t watched). Not to mention the fact that I had to go to the dentist for an emergency appointment this week, convinced that I needed a root canal. Turns out that excrutiating tooth pain was from me grinding my teeth due to stress. $100 and many Advil later, my teeth are perfectly fine. Awesome. And FML for good measure.

    But I’m sure we’ll both pass. :) Good luck!!!

      @Moni, Here’s to good and positive energy!
      I was up late last night too finishing domestic relations. Today I went all the way in on Wills. I heard a few professors predicting elective share to be featured in a question this year, FYI. Though I don’t know how much stock to put into those predictions.

      Back to the grind (not your teeth tho!)
