What, Like It's Hard?


That's false bravado - 30 seconds ago I was about to shit a brick. Sorry, shouldn't use words like that. 30 seconds ago, I was about to shit a rock.

To everyone who has stayed with me through this process - though all of law school and the bar - thank you. I know it wasn't pretty and I wasn't pleasant. But now we can put the whole mess behind us and we never have to worry about it again.

Unless the website was mistaken and my letter says I failed. Shit. I want that letter . . .

I also re-read the screen about 50 times, OCD style, because suddenly I'm not sure I can still read.

But it's over. It's over, it's over, it's over.

Well done.

You know, they say that men are the ones who are supposed to use lines from movies! How many remebered it?

Congrats again!

I'll wait and see who submits what they think is the source of this post's title . . . .

Step one: sell soul to pay for BarBri.
Step two: alienate friends and family
Step three . . . .

congrats!!! i am about to start up for july '06. would you recommend taking the PMBR 6 day and/or 3 day? Did you find them beneficial? Thanks and congrats and hope to be joining you in bar passage-land in Nov.!

Jared said...

Yay! Congratulations! I never doubted it for a moment.

My dad says new lawyers are supposed to have banana daquiris. I'll have to buy one for you the next time I see you.

cd said...

Banana? Would strawberry count?

And, Anon at 8:42pm, I would recommend telling PMBR to suck it and saving your money. BarBri likely covers the MBE sufficiently. I did PMBR because I felt like multiple choice would be a weakness. I did both the 6 and 3 day. Correction, I attended 4 out of the 6 days and 1 out of the 3 days because that's all I could take. The 6 day makes you feel dumb and unprepared, which might make you study, but I never used their bonus books of thousands of questions.

So you're probably fine without PMBR. Use the 400 or 700 to buy some shoes or a pay for a post-bar vacation.

cd said...

Good idea, Mr. John.

When are we buying the Lido and opening a big group rec center with restaurant and law firm suitable for screenplaying?

Hi CD --
So you're saying I'll be just fine sticking solely with Barbri's MBE materials? Thanks!

Joann said...

Good girl. A lot of hard work and long hours but you did it!!!
