I Forgot to Mention

Even though I passed the Illinois bar exam, my old MPRE score has expired. Soooo... I've got to retake that on November 8th, before I can be admitted up there. The MPRE is no big deal, just a hassle.

Favorite quote from the study materials:

"1. The Lawyer Must Avoid Disruption
Example: Engaging in a fist fight with your adversary may be cathartic but is a violation of the MRPC."

Are you serious?? Because I thought that was okay. How else are lawyers supposed to solve problems if we can't use our fists??

I passed!!

I'm in a state of total shock. I passed the Illinois bar exam!!! 12 hellish days of rollercoaster, but I squeaked through - even studying the wrong subjects! The rumor must be true about passing all the out-of-state licensed attorneys, huh!

Anyhow... time to start looking for Chicago tax jobs - help a sistah out!

p.s. - there was a cake this week; will post after company has left town.
