Passed the New York Bar exam!

Realised the pass rate for foreign students like myself is only about 50% - glad I didn't know that when I went in.

Feeling very relieved!

ETA: Heard unfortunate news of a friend, or friend of a friend, who took the Bar Exam this July as well, but didn't pass. This was his third attempt having also failed in February 2008, and July 2007. Very sad as not only is he spending $3500 and 3 months on each attempt, most law firms will only really give you two shots to pass the Bar and so job prospects significantly reduce at this point, or so I'm told anyway.
