This is a blog post that I have been waiting over three years to write.
Since I started law school, I’ve been thinking about the day I would finally become a practicing attorney. As I struggled through 1L classes, tough internships, and an intense bar prep study program, I kept my eyes on this light at the end of the tunnel.
And now it’s here.
I can finally say I PASSED THE BAR EXAM!!!!
A huge congratulations to all of my fellow new attorneys! I’m so proud of the hard work we put in and the great attorneys we’re going to become.
The bar exam was a hard process. I’ve never studied harder, stressed more, or had as much self-doubt as I did in the months leading up to this exam. But I can say with confidence that it was the best decision I made.
For the law students taking the bar in the coming year, and for my friends who will be taking the exam again, I promise you all the hard work, the late nights, and the occasional tears are worth it. Keep the faith. Keep pushing through. And next bar exam season, your name will be on the pass list!
