When people talk about raising the bar, they might be talking about increasingly difficulty through a sports metaphor, or they might just literally be talking about the go**mn bar exam.
It is a notoriously tough test that varies by state and area which law students have to take to basically become officially licensed lawyers.
If you think you’ve had a hard time cramming for a test, you don’t know nothing compared to the pressures of the bar.
Just listen to these folks tell you from their own experience.
10. “So happy I cried.”
It’s time to get out there and celebrate!
9. “I don’t know what scares me more.”
It’ll all be alright, just keep moving.
8. “Smile and cheer them on.”
“Unfortunately, I am the victim.”
7. “I feel so worthless.”
Try as you might, it is in fact brutal.
6. “My boyfriend told me…”
He is either horribly unsupportive or trying very unsuccessfully to manage your expectations.
I object to myself, your honor.
4. “I fought the odds.”
Now I’d got “I fought the law and the law won” stuck in my head.
3. “That’s saying a lot!”
You’ve come this far, just a little (or a lot) further!
2. “I flunked.”
That has gotta feel like a pretty low point.
1. “A way bigger deal.”
With this ring I thee wed…
To any law students out there, keep your chin up! Oh and try not to be evil once you’re actually a lawyer.
Have you had experiences like this? What were they like?
