Bar Exams, Quote of the Day, Texas, Twittering

Quote of the Day: Bar Takers Are A Jumpy Bunch
(Texas and D.C. are here; New York is coming soon.)

ny bar exam results tomorrow. collective productivity of 1st-yr associates just dipped into negative numbers

@dehodges, via Twitter, commenting on the impending news from NY BOLE — which, yes, we will cover.

(A lot of nervous bar takers have turned to Twitter to express their anxiety. Check out a couple of our favorite tweets after the jump. We’ve also got some responses to the Texas and D.C. results, which came out today.)

@She_Is_Nk sent us a tweet about the looming New York results that wouldn’t be particularly noteworthy except for the ominous emoticon at the end:

@atlblog NY just posted it comes out tonight at 12 am…. :(

@maddenap‘s lack of emotion is also unsettling. He wrote:

New York bar exam results tomorrow …. Wish me luck

Down in Texas, the mood is brighter. The state is filled with caps locks and unnecessary exclamation points. @BossManning wrote:

I PASSED THE TEXAS BAR EXAM!!! I’M OFFICIAL!!!!!

And then:

I’M ABOUT TO LOSE MY MIND IN MY HOTEL ROOM!!!!!!!!

Wooooo party!

@PatyRice is more subdued, but she is definitely reveling in her success:

I passed the Texas Bar exam… This is the happiest day of my life… God is so good. I’m living proof!

Congratulations to all the Texas bar passers, as well as those in D.C., which also just released results. Stay cool, New Yorkers — you just have to wait a few more hours!
