bar exam horror stories

Feeding the rumor mill...

1. Use the word "she" as the only pronoun when there is ambiguity. Most bar graders are women. Women lawyers. Need I say more?

2. Take it in San Diego. Northern California is bad because you are competing against Boalt, Stanford and other such ABA gods.

Here's a funny story...

The group that took the bar exam before me recounted someone having their breakdown during the exam. As the story goes -- half way through the last day of the exam, this person jumped up and hollered "I am a covenant, I'm running with the land." and jogged up and down the aisle before running out of the room.

For me -- the single biggest breath of air I took was after I turned in the last exam and was walking out of the room. It was then I realized I had been holding my breathe for 2 1/2 days!!
