All quiet on the western front

The past month has been a mixture of mourning and waiting. It's really been an emotional grind. The bar exam results for Kansas are not yet out. Apparently, the folks in Topeka "got a late start" grading them this year, or at least that's the third-hand rumor I heard. Maybe they just lost them. After being in newspapers for 20 years, the seeming lack of respect for deadlines endemic to the legal profession is quite galling and it gives the profession a black eye in my opinion. When/if I receive the results, I'll know what I'll be doing professionally. At least for now. Until then, the waiting continues.

I google "July 2008 Bar Exam Results" this morning and find your sentiments on waiting for the bar exam results. The picture on your post is an exact representation of how my head feels. Good work Earl.

Mine too. At least other states, e.g. Missouri, post updates with their target date. Not Kansas. I suppose we'll know soon enough. I hope.
