Ha! “Winter Quarters” indeed. Some people simply cannot be made to feel shame. A new high in lows. I have much respect for you who can pass The Bar Exam.
I have always heard that it’s very difficult for the average graduate student to pass The Bar Exam. I recall that JFK JR. (rip) had to take it four or five times before either passing it or writing a check big enough to ‘insure his success’.
Ted Kennedy never passed a bar his entire life.
The Indiana bar was two days of nothing but essay questions. The two most intense days of spewing BS in my life. I figured it was a good way to determine who would be a good trial lawyer.
Seriously, there were several “smart” people who couldn’t take the stress and choked on the test. It is designed to be grueling.
The “Smartest Woman in the World!,” Hillary Clinton, failed the Washington, DC, bar exam.
I believe that’s when she and Bill decided to go back to Arkansas.
California has a fairly difficult bar exam also. My two nephews sweated bullets until they got their results. It’s very embarrassing to be clerking in a law firm and then told you have to leave because you couldn’t pass the bar first time around.
