Yeah - I'm still here. Just been busy/uncreative/unmotivated as of late.
So, I requested my Bar Exam scores. I wish I hadn't done that, as this is what they reflected:
Passing Score: 346
My Score: 342
FOUR POINTS. FOUR MOTHER-EFFING POINTS. 1%. That's it. That's all that stood between me and my law license. FOUR POINTS.
I would've been less frustrated if my score had been more like 250.
But, alas, what can you do?
Well, what I did is beg. The CPA exam allows exam candidates (for a fee, of course. hey - isn't money what this is all about after all??) to have their exams re-scored. The Bar doesn't embrace such a policy - or at least I can find no evidence of one. So I decided to appeal to the humanity of the Executive Director and Chairman. I wrote them a very heartfelt letter in which I pleaded to have my exam re-scored. Seeing as I only have one measly percent to go, it's worth a shot, right?? Sadly, they apparently do not agree with my logic as I have not heard back from anyone at the Board. Sigh.
So, I've applied to take the blasted thing again. Application, and accompanying check for $400, went out today. That basically means $400 and 4 months of studying for FOUR POINTS.
All irritation aside - what this means is that I better damn well knock that piece of shi* out of the park in February, and I want any loyal readers I may still have left to hold me to that. Studying must start now. There will be no 3.5-week cram sessions this time. MONTHS of preparation. I will not take any chances.
That is all.
