I won't find out for at least a couple weeks.

But congrats to those who found out they passed.

You mean Toad, Esq. All you need to do is graduate law school for the JD.

Two more months until I find out....

Thanks everyone, it's a giant relief, and I'm very thankful to have it behind me.

I'll try my best to live up to all the lawyer jokes.

I don't know if anyone here cares, but I found out today I passed the PA bar. I'm of course very happy, but I'm curious as to how much I passed by, and whether the exam was really as hard as I had thought (it seems like almost everyone I knew from school passed).

First-timer success rate is generally higher than the overall success rate so that would partly explain why everyone you know would have passed.

I remember the pass rate on the one I took and passed (MD-July '99) was one of the lower MD pass rates I've seen (65%), so either it was a harder exam or a dumber pool of test-takers.

Only a couple of them are jokes, the rest are true stories....



Congratulations btw...well done.
The hardest exam that I've ever heard of as far as passing rates is the CA exam in India. It has a passing rate of approx 1-2%.

Technically, it would be Scanticon...not the actual convention center itself, correct?

I say that just because when I lived and worked in KOP, for training people I worked with had to go there.

Congrats to both of you!
