So yesterday, after checking the bar exam results webpage from 11:30 in the morning and refreshing every five minutes until 3:30 in the afternoon, I finally saw that I passed the bar exam. After three and a half long years, I can officially say that I am a lawyer.

Congrats! What sort of law will you be practicing?

How long did it take to get results? I took the Professional Engineer's exam in '06 and the results were by paper. I remember when we got into the 8-10 week timeframe for results, my heart would beat out of my chest on the last couple of blocks home before I got to my mailbox.

You mus be thrilled to be done with the whole ordeal.

Criminal law. I want to work for a Public Defender's Office.

Congratulations! You are the second of my friends to find out they passed the bar yesterday.

Best of luck, especially in your chosen line of work. It needs good people and I'm sure you are up to the challenge.

I had a two month wait and that was plenty.

The odd thing is that it can take longer to get licensed by reciprocity in additional states once you have your license than to get the original one you have to test for. I've been fighting the North Dakota board since March just to get my application considered complete so it can get voted on.

Hopefully you have a more streamlined process if you need to.

And never forget those immortal words of Shakespeare, honoring your chosen profession.

Henry VI, part II, act IV, scene ii, lines 83–84.
