Where my heads at ...

As a little Bar-related distraction - here are some famous people who failed the Bar when they first took it ...
Jerry Brown: Attorney General of California (and former California governor). Failed the California bar once before passing.

Hillary Clinton: Failed the D.C. bar exam in the 1970s, but passed the Arkansas bar -- where she went on to have a successful legal career, as a partner in the Rose Law Firm.

John F. Kennedy, Jr. (deceased): Highly attractive son of President John F. Kennedy. Failed the New York bar twice, before passing on the third try. Served as an assistant district attorney in New York from 1989 to 1993

Emily Pataki: Highly attractive daughter of former New York Governor George Pataki. Failed the New York bar the first time, but passed the second time.

Kathleen Sullivan: Former dean of Stanford law school, leading constitutional law scholar, and possible Supreme Court nominee (or Solicitor General pick) in a Democratic administration. Failed the California bar exam when she took it in July 2005. 

Pete Wilson: Former California governor. Failed the California bar exam three times, before passing on his fourth try.

From here.


Oh and I desperately do not want to join them!!! Everyone send me positive vibes please!!!

You totally can do this. I flunked the Kentucky exam the first time by two points on the multiple choice. Talk about being discouraged! But it was good for me. It taught me humility, and how to handle disappointment.

I doubt you'll be in my same boat. Yo are going to do great, and just remember that it's not life and death. It's just a test, and it does NOT define you, or your self worth.

I'm from California where nobody passes the bar . . . just kidding. Here's an inspiration: I had a client who--get this--was having a very intricate gown custom designed, planning a huge wedding and studying for the bar all at once. Of course she passed and was a lovely bride.
