Tom Petty was spot on . . . the waiting really is the hardest part. With Covid19 restrictions and the new online format for the California Bar Exam, this statement could not be more true. Everyone has had a challenging year. During this waiting for results period, try to think about something else, anything else. I know it is easier said than done, but try to distract yourself. Be as calm as you can and do not panic. Should you not receive the results you are hoping for, your time will come. Be proud of your effort no matter what the result. This is not an IQ test. It does not define you or your intelligence. There is not much I can say to quell the expected nerves and and anxiety. But, do something other than dwelling on the test. Keep yourself up and try to be active – go for walks, get exercise, listen to music you love, work if you have work and be grateful for the work if you have it. These are unprecedented times. Keep your head up.
Bar results will be released to examinees online on Friday, May 7, 2021. Everyone here at Bar None Review, and especially me – Lisa Duncanson – are rooting for your success!
All the best of luck from the Bar None Review Team!
