ABOUT DOMINANCE AND SUBMISSION, FREEDOM AND SECURENESS, EXPECTATIONS AND HOPES, LOVING AND BEING LOVED...
Unfiltered thoughts of a dominant woman.
Just received the info.
Dear "Tina Engelmann",
The Committee of Bar Examiners regrets to inform you that you were unsuccessful on the July 2021 California Bar Examination.
You are in good company. Many people have to take it more than once, and they went to a California - or at least US - law school. Persistence pays off n life.
Thank you. You are right. It's not the end of the world. I will write it again in February. My ambition is fueled.
Welllll. Guess a failed exam requires a good sound spanking . Bare that bottom and bend over young lady….Paddle Daddy
Might sound nice as a fantasy, but receiving a spanking would destroy me in my current state. I feel bad enough already.
Very sorry to hear that. California is one of the more difficult state Bar exams, which must have made it even more challenging coming from the continent. While it may not be worth taking one of the Barbri cram courses, you can pick up used course materials on ebay and get much of the value for minimal cost. The cram courses DO help, to organize and streamline the content, but if you have the discipline you can master the material without the need for a formal course or study group.
Thanks for your support. Much appreciated. We will see what I do. I tend to think I am giving it a shot without Barbri or any other course again.
I can only imagine your disappointment but as others have stated, many others have failed at first, then succeeded. You've often written about how hard you would fight for your clients, how relentless you were in their cause. Now YOU are your own client. Keep fighting. You can do it.
You want to be successful as a lawyer? Learn and specialize in Constitutional Law. We are going back to a 1776 form of common law. The current system is corrupt and rotting and decaying.Good Luck
It's always rough when this happens to you. It happened to me years ago when I took my first bar exam in NY. I gritted my teeth, took advantage of the opportunity to review my exam paper (you had to go up to Albany to do that), and I took a more nuts-and-bolts bar review course. I know you have the discipline to study but if you can take a course, the less pretentious ones often pass on tricks and things to look for. I passed the next time (they don't tell you your grade--since all anyone wants to know is that they passed. I then passed a bar exam in another state and more recently had to take the Professional Responsibility exam, which wasn't around in the dinosaur age when I took the earlier exams. It took a lot of studying. Don't look back except to focus on things you might have missed the first time. You have always impressed me and all your friends here for your willingness to take on challenges.
I tell my students "...Yet..." when an exam doesn't turn out for them, meaning it will happen. I wish you all the best on your successful passing in February! -SB
Your sadness is felt. I am wishing you the best. I have confidence that your tenaciousness will help you to succeed.
So sorry to hear this.You are loved! Be well.
Thanks for all who are rooting for me. I will give you all an update on the bar exam situation in one of my next posts.
