Cal Bar: At it again.

Out of morbid (and futile) curiosity today, I checked out the Cal Bar website just to see what was up. It was a dramatic day at work today, since the VA bar results came out. A few people at work passed, but since the results are public, we found out one girl who decided not to come into work today failed. The whole day was really stressful and, for the rest of us, the thought of the upcoming results just made us sick. Really, sick. Sick about what we're going to do with ourselves that day, about our future, whether we're going to have to take the exam again, whether we'll have to keep temping, and if so, will we at least be able to make attorney pay (triple, quadruple what we make now), how we're going to face the light of day if we fail. Ugh. Sick.

So, I looked, just cause. And guess what I found out. First, the fees are being upped in January, so it's now about $530 just for the exam (thank god I won't have to pay the $450 moral character app fee again). So, that's awesome. You know what's even better? Timely filing is November 1st. Our results don't come out until the 18th! So as soon as we find out we fail, we are going to owe a $50 late fee. They fuck you coming and going.

And how! I couldn't agree more.

That is absolutely fucking ridiculous. UNBELIEVABLE. I want to believe that they waive the late fee if you are a retaker who just got July results, but then I would have to give the Cal Bar credit for having one iota of decency/compassion/intelligence.

God! I won't have the money to retake! I wish there was some financial waiver - "no one who can demonstrate they can't afford to retake this damn test has to retake it." Wouldn't that be great? *sigh*
