I know there are people out there anxiously waiting for bar results to be posted or for that letter in the mail...hang in there. Hopefully, everyone reading this will get good news. Nothing like seeing your name or reading that letter that says "I am pleased to inform you...."
If you didn't pass, don't despair. Cycle through the stages of bar grief: disbelief, sadness, anger, a sense of if-Rudy-can-play-football-with-Irish-then-I-can-pass-the-bar-examness. I know- i've been there. Check out some of my oldest posts for more on this.
As a follow up to my bus problems last month, I received a reply from the WMATA on one of my complaints (I never really heard a reply to the other):
"Thank you for your e-mail. Please review the information below received from the division after investigation of your complaint:
At 650 am on xxxxxx Rd. the engine compartment caught fire and the bus was delayed at that location for 1 hour. The fire was extinguished, operator was given a change off and resumed scheduled at 755 am on xxxx.
Office of Customer Service"
Apparently bus fires can happen. Still annoying that I had to wait like that two days in a row. I wish WMATA had a text message system for bus problems. I would prefer to sleep in another 30 minutes and catch the next bus, or if feeling fresh and rested, get up 30 minutes earlier and catch the bus before.
I started working on my first pro bono case as an attorney last month. Fun to get going on something that will help someone deal with a government agency.
