Results Are Around the Corner

Well, it's that time of April. In about one a week, the VBBE will release results of the February 2014 Virginia Bar Exam. Chances are, the VBBE has internally drafted the PASS/FAIL lists, and they are now cross-checking their grades and tallies.  For you, the last week or so will likely be a miserable one - the worst period, in my opinion. But the reality is, nothing's actually changed. Again, what’s done was done back in February, and all the hope in the world won't change anything.

More to the point: whether you pass or fail, bar exam results will never define who you are, neither personally nor professionally nor any other way. You are ten times better than the bar exam to allow it to bring you down to a level of constant despair and anxiety and self-pity. Especially in this last week, you must not forget that. Pass or fail, you are still you.

I have one closing thought about the date of release. April 24 is not a hard-and-fast date. Historically, the VBBE either posts results on the stated day or else the day before; in this case, April 23. Either day is fair game, but don't expect any results before April 23.

Good luck, everybody! Hang in there, and remember to keep this next week in perspective. Please, just trust me on this one.
