I seem to inadvertently have caused a couple of people to have panic attacks. I should clarify about my application. I never finished the “Explanations” section of the CO bar application since I had to gather various documentation from different sources. I meant to turn it in after the July 2006 bar, but then I failed so I didn’t bother to finish it. February 2007 rolled around and I meant to turn the packet in, but didn’t. Failed again. By the time the July 2007 bar exam came around, I was utterly unmotivated to finish my packet. At that point, I just wanted to make sure I actually passed the damn bar first before going to all the time and trouble of gathering documentation from different states and finishing the explanations.
Colorado had sent me a couple of letters about the deficiencies, but I recently moved and didn’t receive them for awhile. They e-mailed me to tell me that my explanations were still missing and to ask if my mailing address was still valid. I finally forced myself to finish the explanations and just submitted it last week. I figure the e-mail was because of my move – either that or they’re playing a sadistic joke on me, forcing me to do all that work only to find out that I failed again. And here I was, all determined not to get my hopes up one iota. Would you really put it past the bar examiners to do something like that?
Anyway, hopefully that clears it up for those of you also waiting for CO bar results – I just hadn’t submitted my explanations until now.
On to other matters… there are exactly 2 1/2 days left until results come out and I AM FREAKING THE HELL OUT. My stomach has been clenched for several days now, and the nausea is starting to set in. I’ve felt indifferent for the past couple of months ever since I took the bar, but I’m definitely not feeling that way anymore.
I checked the CO bar website at least 4 times today. I even tried to figure out what the link to the July 2007 pass list would be, using the URL address of the February 2007 list. Alas, nothing is posted yet.
