In case you’re not already well aware, last night the legal profession stood witness to the biggest bar exam disaster in history. Bar exam takers nationwide were absolutely enraged — as they rightfully should have been — because ExamSoft’s servers were overrun by thousands of aspiring lawyers trying to upload their essays before their state’s deadline came and went.
Instead of going about their business and exhibiting “forbearance with the situation” as requested by the bane of their collective existence, bar takers flocked to Twitter to shake their virtual fists in anger in tweets directed at ExamSoft.
As you can imagine, there were some very entertaining tweets being sent out. If you love schadenfreude and other people’s pain brings you pleasure, you’ll love this…
Here’s a collection of some of the best tweets from the angry mob of law school graduates who were trying to upload their exams. We do feel for these folks, but you can’t help but laugh at some of their tweets.
Friend posted this morning: "we're all in the same boat. Too bad it's the Titanic." So #ExamSoft is the Titanic, right?

Overheard #ExamSoft tech today say "these people wanna be lawyers but they can't follow instructions." WELL LOOK WHO FUCKED UP NOW. Not us.

Are the folks at #examsoft the same who did the Obamacare website?

We’re still trying to wrap our minds around how this even occurred. For more of this insanity, check out the #ExamSoft and #BarExam hashtags on Twitter — and pray for these poor souls come Essay Day #2.
