Please Mr. Postman

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.

OH Man! That totally sucks! Do you know which parts you missed? You could study that part extra if you could find that out. Good luck next go round, crossing my fingers :)

My word verif was poopelim...how fitting ;]

Oh gosh, that's awful. No doubt you'll beat it the next time!

Ha, ha. Poopelim. Awesome. I requested that they send me the questions (they'll do that for $50), so I'll see what I missed then, I guess. I have the worst memory in history though, so I'll have to study it all. Blah. Thank you for the well-wishes!! I need them! :)

wow. that's heart wrenching. Good luck :)

No doubt you'll pass the next time easily...particularly with the sense of injustice.

You'll get it. Good luck! Hope you are studying now.
