By the time you read this post, if you took a bar exam this week, you will be done. Wow. I know most of you are just heaving a sigh of relief that it’s over. Now begins the long wait for results, which don’t come out until the fall: in Georgia, the end of October. What can you do in the meantime?
Well, you can’t do anything more about the bar exam for now. You’ve given it your very best shot, and you have earned a break. Here is some excellent guidance from the Law School Academic Support blog: Congratulations To You (and a few tips while waiting for results). As Prof. Johns writes, many well-meaning people will tell you to relax, you’ve passed. And it may not feel that way to you. I suggest that you take the first part of their advice: relax. Don’t ruminate. Get LOTS of sleep and lots of time with friends, family, loved ones. Do some of those summer things you’ve been putting off, whatever they are: vacation, staycation, new book, old hobby, etc.
We’re proud of all the hard work you did to get to this point. Have a GREAT weekend!
