It has been a little over three hours since I saw the post...

Someone commented on one of my earlier posts that the D.C. bar results were posted.

I passed!

When I read that email, my heart rate instantly rocketed to 200 bpm and I started to shake. I took out the small bottle of booze I brought into work and set it on my desk.

I paused and took a deep breath- then clicked on the link..looked down the list AND... there was my name!

I cried. I shook with the tears of emotion - bottled up inside me since I heard I failed last October.

Thanks to all those that stuck by me and provided words of encouragement and support.

To those other February passers (especially the retakers)- Well Done!

To those that did not pass- hang in there. This has been the most trying time of my professional career. Success tastes all that much sweeter after you are force-fed a little bit of failure. You can do it! (Cue music and scene from Rudy when he gets the last letter that says he is accepted into ND).

I'll post more about my study thoughts later. I wanted to get some good news on the results before I threw too much out there- otherwise my comments wouldn't have much validity.

Good job! I took the Nevada bar this February and passed - not my first time taking either. Only a 57% pass rate, so I am one of the "lucky" few. Here's to a fulfilling legal career!
