Reliable Source: Spoiler Alert

Per the grape vine allegedly originating in the Massachusetts Superior Court, results of the Mass bar will be mailed tomorrow, Tuesday, October 26.  I figured it would be nice to share.

Hey -- remember that UCC Question that started the second half of the exam?

EDIT (10/26, 7:13 AM): We trust our reliable source, but some in the comments don't.  Decide for yourself.

  3. just woke up from a nightmare (possibly reality) that I missed a contracts law issue on the MA bar. Was there one? OMG HELP ME! :-( :-( :-(

    ReplyDelete
  4. Grape vine rumor is false. Confirmed Mass is mailing results out on October 28, 2010.

    ReplyDelete
  5. Yes. Mass is sorting and posting mail today, October 26, 2010, and will have them in the mail by October 28, 2010.

    ReplyDelete
  6. No contracts that I saw...

    ReplyDelete
  7. So does everyone get their MA results on different days?

    ReplyDelete
  8. has it be confirmed that it's going out today?

    ReplyDelete
  9. Any idea when they are posted online? Concerned that mail forwarding may take forever...

    ReplyDelete
  10. Yes, everyone gets their results on different days via mail and then a couple of days later, it's posted on the board's website. I've known people who found out online before receiving their letters! :-o

    ReplyDelete
  11. I called the Massachusetts Board of Bar Examiners this morning, and the woman told me that results are being mailed next week. Therefore, everyone should enjoy this week and the weekend.

  12. I work in the BBE and know for a fact that due to record low passage rates they are delaying sending out results until suicide prevention hotline flyers are printed up and included with the mailings.

  13. "I work in the BBE and know for a fact that due to record low passage rates they are delaying sending out results until suicide prevention hotline flyers are printed up and included with the mailings."

    AWESOME.

    ReplyDelete
  14. That is some fine internet troll work. I mean, wouldn't it take all of 20 minutes to print up a thousand or so suicide prevention flyers?

    ReplyDelete
  15. If the original tip was correct, people in the Boston area should see the results in their mailboxes tomorrow, right? Guess we'll know soon if that tip was correct.

    I tend not to believe whatever the BBE would say on the phone. These are the same people who have been saying the results come out on November 15 every year, when in fact they've reliably come out the last week of October.

  16. Got my MA Results in mail at my law firm in Boston on October 26, 2010. Passed!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Re: "Got my MA Results in mail at my law firm in Boston"

    Someone from our class is actually employed... as an attorney??

    ReplyDelete
  18. Everyone who actually passed knows the mailings were received on Monday. People still waiting obviously didn't pass.

    ReplyDelete
  19. The BBE will not mail results to the office address, they will mail it to the home address provided in the application. now we know you are lying.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Nothing in the mail today in Beacon Hill area, Chelsea or Braintree. Wouldn't count on the results today.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Just remember, small envelope means you fail

    ReplyDelete
  22. yellow paper in envelope = FAIL.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I live in Back Bay. Mail man doesn't get here until mid afternoon. Waiting...

    ReplyDelete
  24. Just got mine out of the mailbox! It says I passed. It also says you didn't. Tough break.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Where do you like

    ReplyDelete
  26. this is a crock of shit. if results are mailed, the BBE says so. Instead of saying "early november" like they're saying now, they say - "results have been mailed".....this tip is bullshit.

    ReplyDelete
  27. the BBE does not want people calling them to ask when results will be mailed - so they are feeding BS. Results went out yesterday, will be received today if you live in MA.

    ReplyDelete
  28. and how do you know?

    ReplyDelete
  29. I live in the South End. Mail came ... no bar results. If they were mailed yesterday I really think they would have arrived today considering the proximity.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Blog Credibility Fail.

    ReplyDelete
  31. what is ttt?
    yes, blog credibility fail. unsubscribing.

    ReplyDelete
  32. TTT = Third Tier Toilet

    ReplyDelete
  33. Sometimes it takes longer than a day for mail to get to its destination (even if it's in the same city) depending on the time it was mailed. DUH.

    ReplyDelete
  34. well then we would have at least one person post somewhere to say he received his results.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Worst. Hoax. Ever.

    ReplyDelete
  36. If Back Bay didn't get it today, nobody got it today.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Back Bay here: NO RESULTS. Other friends in close proximity to BBE: NO RESULTS. BLOG = HOAX

    ReplyDelete
  38. No results in Beacon Hill either.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I love that the MA BBE decided to move offices during the month of October. I'm betting that at least 1 person's official result letter will get lost in the fray.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Here is the best I can do....http://www.sjccountyclerk.com/index.html

    So if the earliest date is November 22, and they want to notify you within 3 weeks, the latest we will get result letters is November 1st.

    So it is probable that results were mailed this week, at sometime, but that is no gurantee.

    For anyone who says they called and spoke to a person, are these the same people who when you call to ask a simple question about the application they get huffy, frustrated and transfer you three times before hanging up???

    ReplyDelete
  41. where on the site does it say that notification of ceremonies is intended to be within at least 3 weeks?

    ReplyDelete
  42. Nevermind, I found it:

    http://www.sjccountyclerk.com/ceremony.html
    "Approximately three weeks prior to the ceremonies, the applicants will receive notice of their date and time to appear for the ceremony."

    That is an impressive catch!

    ReplyDelete
  43. it'll come next week.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Since the "grapevine" was clearly full of it, I demand said source be outed so we can properly direct our scorn at them.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Last year most people got them on the 28th, so lets see what happens.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Anyone receive mail today?

    ReplyDelete
  47. Word is it is a no go today as well.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I'm in Back Bay and my mail should come any minute. Will let everyone know.

    ReplyDelete
  49. word from who? where are all these words coming from? at least give where you're hearing from instead of "word"

    ReplyDelete
  50. thank you to the person who posted at 11:25

    ReplyDelete
  51. I haven't got my mail, but a friend got their mail and it wasn't in there about 20 minutes ago.

    ReplyDelete
  52. just called BBE office, lady told that results were mailed out this morning!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  53. Does anyone know when results will be posted online?

    ReplyDelete
  54. I just called and confirmed the same. Results were mailed today

    ReplyDelete
  55. don't you think that no matter what day you called this week they would say, yes the results were mailed out today, just so you won't call them again at 9:01 tomorrow morning? these are the same people after all who are insisting the results come out november 15

    ReplyDelete
  56. Am sure I failed. Contemplating suicide but don't know how to do it.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Good luck to everyone!!! No matter what happens, just keep on thinking positive... everything in life happens for some reason which most of the times, we don't get it....trust me everything always happens for our good!!!! You will know yourself in life sooner or later.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Does anyone know if we get our MBE scores with the results?

    ReplyDelete
  59. no I don't think that no matter what day I called they'd say that because yesterday when I called, they said they were not mailed.

    ReplyDelete
  60. so where is tomorrow's circle jerk located?

    ReplyDelete
  61. It has to be VERY soon because the swearing in ceremonies start Nov. 22 (SJC Clerk's web site) and the description of the ceremonies says that you get notice of when your date is about 3 weeks from the ceremony, which means that the results MUST be coming out today or Friday (probably Friday so they can be closed when people get their results on Saturday to avoid a barrage of phone calls).

    ReplyDelete
  62. did anyone actually go to their mailbox and not see a letter? thats all that matters

    ReplyDelete
  63. I live in a close suburb to the city - nothing in the mail today

    ReplyDelete
  64. I am the 11:25 Back Bay guy. Nothing in the mail today. Yes I actually went to my mailbox, got the mail and while Domino's is offering some nice specials, the MA bar has sent me nothing.

    ReplyDelete

  66. All I got in the mail today was a BET tv flier. I think this is god laughing at me and my anxiety from above. but whoever made a post about the circle jerk tomorrow, please lemme know the details, i'll gladly photograph. anything for a little extra cashflow these days...

    ReplyDelete
  67. i'm pretty sure the circle jerk and the suicides should be done in your law school lobby so as to confuse and concern current students.

    ReplyDelete
  68. Just think...if the BBE understood the concept of e-mail we would all have our results already.

    ReplyDelete
  69. The results were mailed October 28, 2010. Metro Boston arrivals are 10/29. Rhode Island and Islands expect to get them 10/30. 2,100 potential new lawyers and 100 job listings this month....

    ReplyDelete
  70. Who at BBE said results were mailed 10/28?

    ReplyDelete
  71. MA came today and I passed.

    Now i am underemployed, Yay!!! (until I am let go then i am unemployed or "self-employed" because as lawyers we are never unemployed, we are self-employed looking for a better situation)

    ReplyDelete
  72. Anyone in CT get their Mass results today?

    ReplyDelete
  73. for the people who got their letter before 10:00am, do you mind telling me where you live?
    I am trying to see when I will get mine.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Got mine today in Springfield. Good news. Good luck to all and keep your head up if it is a different result for you. Remember, it is just a test, offered again in 3 mos.

    ReplyDelete
  75. Any idea when the results will be posted online for those of us who live out of state?

    ReplyDelete
  76. Just to further confirm for anyone waiting, bar results are out. I received mine in the inner suburbs a few minutes ago.

    ReplyDelete
  77. Gaawwd bless Passachusetts! Ahhhhhhhhh......(small fart)

    ReplyDelete
  78. If/when you get your results, please post where you live! I'm out-of-state (but close to MA) and waiting for the mail is killing me!

    ReplyDelete
  79. Newton, MA
    Still waiting

    ReplyDelete
  80. for the ones who got the mail? small or large envelope?

    ReplyDelete
  81. Got it in Brighton, MA by 11am. Passed. Small envelope with a green RSVP form for the swearing-in ceremony.

    ReplyDelete
  82. Do people not know what time their mail arrives? Mine comes at the same time every single day....like clockwork.

    ReplyDelete
  83. I'm in Worcester abd got my results at 11:30

  84. Maybe I should run this blog considering I appear to have the correct info...:

  85. It's somewhat irrelevant where you live (beyond MA vs. CT or RI, for example). I'm in Brighton and someone 100 feet away could be on a different mail route with totally different timing.

    ReplyDelete
  86. Got results in Coventry, Rhode Island today.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

  99. Just read this thread. I can't believe these are my fellow attorneys. Most of them are so immature, crass, crude and distasteful, self-absorbed and full of it.
