‘Tis the season for bar exam results. If you took the bar in February we’re sorry, your score should be on its way.

Several states have announced since our last open thread, which covered Illinois and Kansas. Last week, scores came out for Florida, Massachusetts, and Virginia. Scores have also been out for a while from Missouri and Idaho (where the names of the February bar passers fit on one page).

Congratulations to those who passed; keep your head up if you failed. Please share your stories of triumph or sadness — and mention other states I might have missed — in the comments.

The New York State February bar results are still not in. But do you remember what happened the last time the New York Board of Law Examiners (BOLE) tried to release the results of the test? The results to last July’s NY Bar Exam were accidentally released online at the exact moment a number of readers happened to be looking for results. BOLE then tried to depublish the results and pretend that the mistake never happened. But they were flummoxed by the “CTRL – Print Screen” skills of myself and others. So the July bar results ended going up live on Above the Law, and NY BOLE eventually had to admit its mistake.

Well, it seems that six months later, NY BOLE is still reluctant to admit that they simply screwed up. Instead they’re trying to act like ninja computer hackers are after their lucky charms or something….

Fly like an eagle, or at least a California Quail, successful bar takers.

I’ll say this for California: at least they didn’t accidentally release the results of the July 2010 bar exam and then lie about it for a whole day. Apparently, the good people at the Nuts & Boalts blog have been acting like there’s been an early release… and then Rickrolling people who click on it.

But as of 6 p.m., Californians can log in and see if they passed the bar exam. Here’s the link to the State Bar of California website. As always, we congratulate those who passed and encourage those who didn’t to keep their heads up.

Discuss your triumphs, your near-triumphs, and your abject failures here. It’s been a long wait; enjoy yourselves.
