Another Bar Exam?

So I've been thinking about taking another bar exam, since I'm still in school and I'm job hunting. If I get a job, I'll take the bar of that state. Since I don't have a job lined up, I was considering going ahead and registering for a state that I'd like to live in. BUT some states would just make me take their state parts instead of taking the MBE again, so I was thinking about those states. The top two contenders are Illinois and Georgia (i.e. Chicago or Atlanta). I'd really like to go to Boston, but I just don't feel like sitting through the MBE again, especially since I'll be taking a class and writing my thesis in the summer.

My life is so up in the air... anyone hiring?

Have I ever mentioned that you're crazy? ...Cause you are.

Liney said...

Thanks, Pam - you're such a sweetheart :)

Pam said...

From one crazy to another ;)

But hey, I'd like to support your super-craziness and tell you to take the MA exam...

What's wrong with Ohio?

Liney said...

I've never even considered Ohio... I guess I just don't know people there. They only make you talk half?

JLR said...

I think you would love Philly. I already know a ton of lawyers that I can hook you up with. And I saw you read my entry on how great the city smells!

biff said...

I'm actually not sure if Ohio is even a real state.

ugh. i can't imagine taking another bar exam. i can barely bring myself to study for the federal bar in january (only 50 multiple choice questions and they give you 500 practice questions that the 50 will come from). i'm surprised at how many people in my little (30 lawyers) firm have taken more than one state's bar.

merry xmas!

Go for it girl! And since you really wanna go back to Boston---take the MA bar----it will suck, but you can do it!

Handsome J said...

I have to agree: if Boston is where you really wanna be, go for it! I volunteer Pam to house you while you job hunt. ;)

Liney said...

Ugh, Handsome J!!! After talking to you I'm already 50% through the Georgia bar application... I'm going to strangle you!! :) But you do have a good point - Pam, did you catch that??

I'd kick my roommate out if you came up here... or maybe we'd just have to stick another bed in my room. It's about the same size as our sophmore year shoebox...

I've got several interviews lined up for New York and Boston - so maybe something will be fruitful. I'm over this "up in the air business." My last entry was in November, and I'm in the same place 3 months later.
